    I did n/a all across. These questions have plagued me all my life. I choose not to believe things, but to know them. If belief (or disbelief) is a type of delusion, then my delusion is that I think that anything you are required to know to live your life is essentially and directly knowable.

    My answers were:

    - God: n/a, I don't know the answer

    - Afterlife: n/a, I don't know the answer

    - Religion: No, I'm not into organized religion


    However, I still practice morality and see potential for the divine, especially in a panentheistic sense if anything.

    But that wasn't the question.

    Maybe not to you.
    But to me it was.

    ...Because that's how I "believe" in things.
    I believe in it if I think it likely to be true.

    At this time, I don't see anything that says God (or whatever) be more likely to be true than anything else, and maybe less when we take Occam's Razor and other rational principles into account.

    What, you think it would be better for me to say, "I believe in fluffy unicorns!" as that is a belief rather than something that can be known? Considering all the crap that people impose on each other in the name of God due to their "beliefs," I would hope beliefs to be grounded on more than just what one wants to believe but has no real evidence for.

    If you don't hold a belief that fluffy unicorns exist, then being in your situation I would say that I do not believe in them, same thing with god.

    Maybe you should stop trying to impose your rules for "belief" over top of mine. You are, of course, free to answer the question for yourself however YOU see fit.

    Thanks.

    I said I didn't believe in god, that I believed in the after life, and I am not religious.
    Too many things that go Bump in the night, plus i can't be satisfied believing that this life is all there is. I might be wrong, but at least I have hope.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I'm no believer in God, or the after life, and I'm not a religious person. This doesn't mean I'm against the ideas, though, I'm open to anything that can be measured or proven in some way.
    Whoops.
