    But its okay, because ENTP children are my FAVORITE! Just know that someday, when you get big, you'll have to include some of your own ideas too. =)
    Hmmm...this smells a lot like avoidance of the subject at hand.

    Just kidding. I don't really want to pick a fight with you about this. Just don't write off atheists like that, kay? It's not nice, either.

    ^ For me.. this would be of like-minds. I am spiritual.. but I am okay with someone else not being so. I just want them to have come to that conclusion on their own, and as their own personal truth.. for them to know there is no way to tell for sure would mean that they acknowledge that they are atheist for their own personal benefit. Just like being spiritual is for my own personal benefit.

    my parents have very different view of things and they've been married 26 years, but they respect each other's beliefs. They don't force their belief system on the other.

    What if.......... Love is the religion?? Then if a woman loves me back, this means we are practicing the religion of love. We are it's clerics and priests and also it's congregation. Our bodies are our altars of worship, our sacrifice is to each other.

    We would not be atheists then, I would think.

In the famous "burning bush" story with Moses, Moses asks for a name and the voice spells it out for him: "I am that I am".). Not to get into a debate or anything, but I always thought it was a lot more interesting than this old guy in the clouds concept. There isn't much of that in the bible itself (there's stories of God taking on the form of mysterious desert wanderers though). I'm not sure where the old man thing started. It could have been a combination of Greek/Biblical/Norse concepts, once Christian artists started depicting God that way specifically..
    Hehe, I know, I was playing about and mirroring his own reply. Paganism isn't all about frolicking in the woods with animal spirits either, but it's often depicted as such. The man up in the clouds is the christian version of this

    I am an ENFJ who is open to religion but really religious people exhaust me after awhile. I am an agnostic with evolutionary leanings. I believe in good, evil, and karma so please don't think no religion= amoral or no morals. I voted yes. I might even marry s religious person as long as he didn't try to convert me. I would support his religiosity as long as he accepted mine. In a way, I believe in pluralism.

    Thoughts?

    Edit: Please answer the poll, if you don't mind .
    Totally. Im an atheist myself. I dont need to believe in a god. I guess for me, the higher thing that gives me faith is that i believe people are basically good.
