Some shy away from the spiritual dimension to try to avoid alienating people who might think that is incompatible with their religion, but many delve into it alongside the physical training.

    Pagan.

    I believe the world itself is alive, tbh. Religion provides a way to tap into what is often described as the web of life, which connects us all. I also think our view of what is 'life/alive' is limited. The energy that crystals give off, for instance...it feels very much like the energy a supposed living being gives off. Places can have personalities and moods and your subconscious holds the doorway to other realms with otherworldly inhabitants.

    In the words of Delenn (Bab 5): 'We are the Universe, made manifest.'

    Your complicated body system was created by God is foolish idea= your PC was created by a manufacturer is a foolish idea..
    Why do you think the manufacturer would show himself to you any way? As for God, he would show himself to you after death anyway so he don't need you to believe him, and don't need you to make judges about believers, take your atheism with you and take off!!

    Calling the idea of God (foolish) is humiliating to many people, you can choose to believe whatever you want but never underestimate a believer intellectuality, and that's what I've noticed is happening around here..

    I would say that its a good idea to treat others as you would have them treat you but never expect that others will adopt that idea themselves. I'm not perfect and dont succeed in doing so most of the time but I dont think a discussion really goes anywhere when you start down the "take your ideas and shove them" road.

    When I think of becoming atheist, it would be to not involve myself in too many questions and discussion I'll be just glad there's no God that would tell me to do or not to do, it's strange that you guys keep involving in all these religion talks.. Anyway, the discussion only starts when you (speaking generally) saying your opinion without offending others, but when you offend others in your comments it's not a discussion anymore.. So my message was for the offenders only..you wanna talk? Talk with respect and you shall be respected, you wanna offend others? You better go away and we can be offensive as much as you are..
    So you see the discussion in this case didn't start from here, it actually ended here..

    The simple fact is that for 3,000 years, since the Ancient Greeks, we have found no evidence at all for the existence of supernatural beings.

    I am a Christian and (an imperfect) follower of Jesus Christ.

I believe in God as creator.. but more than just creator. The God of the Bible is displayed as a Father God who created us to be family and object of His inherent love.

    I've seen personal evidence of God in my life through continually experiencing specifically answered prayers.

    - Jesus Christ as the eternal Son of God.
    - Man's redemption through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
    - Salvation received through repentance toward God and faith toward Jesus Christ. Washed, regenerated, and renewed by God's Spirit, man becomes an heir of God, and given eternal life in Heaven.
