Honestly I call myself an athiest but im not sure if that is truely my religion.
I dont believe in god at all. I dont believe in the bible. I dont go to church.
So what religion do you think fits me?
lucky1826 what are you? 12 years old? DONT some to a question about atheists’ telling them not to preach when you are preaching your beliefs this question is about what an atheist is its not a question inviting christians to preach there god to everyone, saying your wrong, you need to believe in it, ect its not your JOBB to do that and you obviously have no RESPECT for different peoples beliefs so without respect, you will get NONE in return celebrating things has nothing to do with NEEDING believing in a religion your god didn’t poof money into existence most christians aren’t even educated about there own religion and humans did not evolve from apes if you’ve ever bothered to read a science book, you would know that they both evolved from a common ancestor as for me I am a proud athiest and will also "always believe that (your religion) is full of crap"
lucky1826, that was completely uncalled for and very rude.
Just so you know: "I bet you celebrate your birthday, Christmas, Easter, and exchange in the use of money"
-Everyone has the right to celebrate the day of their birth, you don't have to believe in God for that -Christmas and Easter were originally Pagan holidays, not Christian, and had nothing to do with God -Money has nothing to do with God, and maybe the American currency says "in God we trust", but it's still currency and is still necessary for survival, regardless of what it says - to stop using money over 4 meaningless words would be stupid and irrational.
You are the one who needs to do some growing up.
*** If you are the proud athiest that want us to believe that you are, then refrain from everything that has to do with God, the Bible, etc.
...or alternately, ignore this absurd advice and just go on with life celebrating birthdays, using money, etc, but without believing in any gods
*** Grow up and educate yourself before you go around preaching and believing that God does not exist.
"When I was a child, I spoke like a child, thought like a child, and reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up my childish ways."
...which is why I'm now an atheist. Wow! An atheist just quoted the Bible! Oh the hypocrisy!!!
I'm struggling with trying to define my religious beliefs as well, and I came across a rather interesting one. Google Unitarian Universalism. Some would say they're the religion that believes in everything and nothing, but I find their laid back approach to be refreshing. Members of the church include Agnostics, Atheists, Buddhists, Christians, Humanists, Wiccans as well as homosexuals and transgender individuals. The you church focuses on helping people discover what they believe instead of force feeding you their version of nonsense.
Agnosticism is the position of believing that knowledge of the existence or non-existence of God is impossible. [[Kinda like in between Theism and Atheism]]
Theism is the denial of the existence of all gods except one. [[Theism denies atheism.]]
Atheism is the disbelief in the existence of God at all.
So it sounds like your an Atheist. [[But as said above Atheism isn't a religion.]]
I'm an Atheist as well =]
Atheism isn't a religion... It's the absolute opposite. If it were a religion it would be a completely contradicting idea. Atheism is the absence of belief.
Oh, lucky1826, you need to grow up and educate yourself before you try to shove sh!t down people's throats... Try researching the word, it's spelled a t h e I s t...
The definition of atheist is somebody who doesn't believe in any higher power...agnostic is one who believes in one, but that it lacks definition or form (eg, that we all have the right idea of a "god" but that it's not the judeo - christian, nor other, ideal).
Atheism is not a religion. It is the absense of belief in god. Those who believe are theists, those who don't are atheists.
I am an athiest, and I have no religion.
Just don't call yourself anything. I don't believe in any religion, but I don't like to be labed so I don't call myself an atheist either.
If you don't believe God exists, then you are an atheist, but atheism, itself, is not a religion.
Actually theism is a belief in AT LEAST one God... Monotheism is the belief in only one God...
