    I'm open minded to the possibility of anything, I'm very curious and want to find out more about our history, the universe and more

    Nothing is "solid" for me unless there is undeniable proof

    Some have called me agnostic, I prefer to say I just don't have a religion though

    So as far as Zeus or Poseidon are concerned, you are an atheist. But as far as the Trinity is concerned, you are a theist.
    It is possible to acknowledge other Gods while adhering to your own.

    I believe in God. I believe Jesus is that God.
    I don't believe in religion.

    Believing is Jesus and the Gospel is not indicative of being religious.
    You can call me Charles.

    Errm does it qualify if I say that I don't think that anyone has gotten it right (philosophers, scientists, religions..) but I think you've all got good ideas?
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Yeah. Look at the first half of the thread for guidance, that part had buzzed right along just fine. You can even state what you don't believe, but we're going to direct any actual debate to other threads.

    Don't know, don't care. I'm not a spiritual person. I tried to be when I was young, having been raised in a Christian environment, but that didn't work out. I thought people were making it all up because I never felt any of it.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    My alien God/Gods theory still prevails.

    There was something past the first few posts?



    (Doing my usual, one two skip a few post a quick reply to the OP. I kinda ignored the usual tit for tat.)

    The question was more of "how do I define a position which takes on no title but also leaves no theory behind"?

    I have felt connected to what felt like an external source of strength during difficult times in my life. I spent almost my entire life debating the question of God in my mind from the time I was a child until now. I think I can only glimpse reality and am drawn towards those concepts that remind me of that limitation. I am agnostic. I'm not undecided, or think that both sides present equal arguments, etc.

    I feel connected to the ape that looks at the stars and never comprehends a light year, or a wolf who reacts to the glowing of the moon never comprehending it is an orbiting sphere, or ant that crawls on my arm never knowing I exist.
