    I saw a topic, and I posted earlier, but I want to make a separate topic specifically for this topic. I don’t generally like the idea of hijacking someone’s topic.

    Anyway, what’s your personal beliefs, philosophically, religiously, and the like? Do you believe in the existence of a god, gods, or do you worship his Noodly Appendage? Are you an atheist, a theist, or simply believe there is no sure way of knowing? If you’re an atheist, do you believe in some “supernatural” things or completely reject all things pertaining to mysticism and the like?

    Personally, I’m an atheist and a humanist. I also have a few philosophical views that originate from religions. I practice yoga. It calms me and opens me up to a time for instrospection and “meditation” in a sense. I’ve made major life decisions based on what I finally saw in a yoga asana. My favorite’s Chandra Namaskar (Moon Salutation). It’s a good philosophy to live by, the Yamas and Niyamas (aside from the concept of God).

    Anyway. What are your beliefs and philosophies? I’m curious. :)

    @autumnrossi, you said you’re more agnostic but you also said you believe in God. Agnosticism is the middle of knowing and not knowing, not taking a position on the stance or just not feeling any compelling evidence or arguments towards either side. An agnostic would not have a firm belief in God.

    Do you mean you just no longer hold traditional Christian values? If so, the word you’d be looking for is simply “theist”. It refers to the belief in God without connotations of any specific religious doctrines.

    I’d love to hear your reply on this :)

    I mean a church that preaches that homosexuality is a sin even, not homophobia lol.
    I think homophobia is a sin to be fair. I can’t stand homophobes.

    I was baptised as LDS 5 years ago, and I consider myself Christian, but I don’t attend church anymore. However I do study scripture.
    I just can’t associate myself with any church as such as I don’t want to be associated with any church that preaches homophobia, free thinking, natural emotions, masturbation etc is a sin. Too many people have committed suicide over feeling like they’re terrible people because of what Churches and people preach.
    I just practice at home now I guess, believing that God is love and compassion.

    I’ve recently decided that I’m more so agnostic than christian now. I believe in God, our creator , loving everyone, and bettering the world with love, positivity, etc. Also, I believe he hears our prayers. I feel that everyone builds their own relationship with Him and that as long as you believe what you are doing is for the right reasons and is right as well as with love, then you aren’t wrong. (: Love.Peace.Happiness

    I’m an atheist. I used to be a Christian, but I kind of just stop believing after awhile.
