| You scored as agnosticism. You are an agnostic. Though it is generally taken that agnostics neither believe nor disbelieve in God, it is possible to be a theist or atheist in addition to an agnostic. Agnostics don’t believe it is possible to prove the existence of God (nor lack thereof).
Agnosticism is a philosophy that God’s existence cannot be proven. Some say it is possible to be agnostic and follow a religion; however, one cannot be a devout believer if he or she does not truly believe.
I am an atheist. I’ve found for a long time that being a non-believer is about as bad as being a child killer. When you tell somebody that you don’t believe there is a higher being out there, you automatically become a bad person.
I believe in science. Prove it to me. Show me the proof that “it” exists. I want facts. Timelines based on carbon dating, actual written documents (not copies of copies of copies of some scrolls that nobody has every really seen), etc.
I was recently introduced to the Invisible Pink Unicorn by Marie. Marie rocks.
Taken directly from their site:
The “believers” famous sayings about faith in the invisible pink unicorn is that, like other religions, it is founded in science and faith. Science – that states that she must be invisible, since we cannot see her. Faith – because we know in our heart that the invisible pink unicorn exists.
I have emailed Ben’s dad and my dad and Cherie to find some good books to start learning more about Buddhism. It’s more a belief system than faith that an all mighty (and very vengeful) God is out there watching us somewhere.
I believe in karma. From Wikipedia
Buddhism teaches followers to perform good and wholesome actions, to avoid bad and harmful actions, and to purify and train the mind. The aim of these practices is to awaken the practitioner to the realization of true reality and the achievement of Nirvana.
Buddhist morality is underpinned by the principles of harmlessness and moderation. Mental training focuses on moral discipline (sila), meditative concentration (samadhi), and wisdom (prajÃ±Ä).
Religious people don’t sin for fear of punishment from God. I do nice things because it’s nice to be nice. And there is no fear based motivation to do the “right thing”. So really, isn’t it more meaningful when I do something nice? Rather than the Christian that only does if for fear of going to Hell? (I’m am certainly not saying that ALL Christians do this.) And is it really okay to tell somebody after they’ve raped and killed a child, “Oh it’s okay, ask for forgiveness and live an eternal life of peace and happiness because you are forgiven!!”
I don’t know. Marie is an anthiest too. I really love Marie. It’s so good to be able to tell somebody that you don’t believe and not have them look like you aren’t worth associating with.
And she goes shopping with me! 😀
