    Well your views are solidly college libertarianism, consequently I'd be disappointed to find out you were much older.

    With the understanding of ignorance one must search for knowledge.
    In passion one must seek serenity.
    In chaos, one must search for harmony.

    Well the "creator God" who requires you to worship him, isn't the point of christian theology that he is worthy of the worship?
    Seriously if that God existed as it is said that would honestly be the greatest thing ever. nothing could possibly be more worthy of worship.

    Spirit and energy are misunderstood greatly. Who is to say the right energy is being channeled to this earthen abode. Seems like the light energy is different in each instance of established popular frequencies to spirit which makes me wonder whether the primal energies are genuine. Either way interpretation is in the precipitation to perception.

    This is one of the reasons why Pascal's wager is irrelevant.
    Overall however, their are in fact an infinite number of possible gods and by fixing our beliefs, we could in fact be alienating the god(s) that do exist. Converting to Christianity for example, may paradoxically send you to a version of hell.

    I agree to an extent, but we will never fully understand and grasp God completely - human minds are too puny to do so!

    I've heard arguments like this and I simply do not know what to make of them. In my opinion, if any of these religions are correct, it's Christianity. It is the most able religion to be defended historically and the most relevant to today.

    However, I know smatterings in defense of that statement, so feel free to attack me... I am no theologian and I'm still technically an atheist, but lately I've seriously been considering converting.
