I just thought of this because of the religions thread, but did you choose your religion on your own or have it passed down by family? I want athiests and theists seperate since I would assume more atheists chose atheism on their own.

The license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror
If anything I can say this cab is rare
But I thought 'Now forget it' - 'Yo homes to Bel Air'

I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8
And I yelled to the cabbie 'Yo homes smell ya later'
I looked at my kingdom
I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel Air


fixed.
BOLD.

Pretty badly thought out poll and question, but I chose atheism. "Passed down" to be Roman Catholic, but of course truth overrides myth. The rest of my family are pretty much irreligious or atheist as my dad is because of me.

Most people are stupid. It's not a religion because there is no doctrine or belief system, only lack of belief in god means you are an athiest.

I was just curious since I noticed a lot of people post on the religions thread don't understand their own beliefs

It's the christians that do it. They're just so full of sugar. Damn them i'm going to have to have another bag of catholic balls now.

Nah i chose Buddism because the idea of living a good life and self reflection for that pure purpose did appeal to me a lot.

Atheist. Not my passed down religion, but theist religions make no sence and are a load ofcockandbull.

religion causes nothing but trouble if someone believes in god or not eating meat or being kind to others then thats great but you dont need to be part of a religion for that. when people join religions then trouble starts as then people find it harder to accept each others beliefs and people within religions argue as they tell each other they are worshipping in the wrong way. when people have been brought up a muslim or christian or whatever they can find it hard to just say no i dont believe this so i lose no respect for those people. people who join religions of their own free will do it to be interesting they do it for the sam,e reason they may decide to be a goth or emo, because they want to be part of something. there you go

The Apostle's Creed say everything more or less what catholics believe at a base that is it gets more complicated than that.

Since it's not a religion it was a joke... but since the threadstart thought it was a religion I played his game...
#26
i noticed how many catholics there are and thats because of their rules on birth control each catholic couple has about 10 children who they raise to also be catholics and have even more children therefore increasing the population of catholics. whoever invented this religion was very clever as now catholics will takeover the world

None of those. Buddhism is nontheistic.

I don't like Catholic cuz the catholic church is nothing but a bunch of powerhungry hypocrits that try to shove their rules down other peoples throats...most of their teachings have nothing to do with Jesu' sayings, they are like the pharasees(jesus didn't like them and He preached against their self rightneous and adding unneccessary teachings). So DO NOT judge Christians on all that Catholic dogma ****. I am a Protestant Christian BY CHOICE!!!!! I admit to experimenting with other stuff in the past(buddhism, satanism) but none are like Christianity and none are true religions other than Christianity. No one is trying to force you to be Christian, but if you cared about your soul you'd be a Christian. I pray for nonChristians everyday. I've been down that road and it SUCKED!!!!!! My family is for the most part, not very religious Christians(my family doesn't really go to church and stuff). Just because you are religious doesn't mean you are a weak person who was forcefed it as a child. You could be a complete anti christian and come from a very religious home...or be a super strong Chistian and come from a satanist family(I know someone like this).
#32
I'm agnostic, my family never really church'd me or said anything about God to me, but they didn't argue with what I "learned" in primary school. I don't think they are particularly religious.

That was one of the most idiotic things I have read on this site. You lack a complete understanding of religion, belief, logic, and reason. That was both offensive to Catholicism, and any other belief, as well as atheism.

"but none are like Christianity and none are true religions other than Christianity. No one is trying to force you to be Christian, but if you cared about your soul you'd be a Christian."
This pretty much seals you being an idiot, along with being hilarious.

And by the way, Roman Catholicism is the original Catholicism, so if anything is against the bible it is the other Christian denominations.
