Quote from: tessspoon on October 02, 2010, 08:27:24 PMAfter doing a bit of googling, I'd say I fall under agnostic atheism.
Quote from: Travis-AGA on October 02, 2010, 08:33:55 PM*raises hand*I'm spiritual... but I've left "organized religion" behind when I realized (a) organized religion is SOMETIMES controlled by people who sincerely want and desire power for themselves ("In the Hands of an Angry God, for example)... Please note I said SOMETIMES and (b) never really felt what organized religion offered allowed me that spirituality that I can achieve on my own.Plus, I have incredible faith in God... I don't align him with any specific religion... I just believe in God and that ALL religions have valuable aspects to teach about him (I also kind of believe that all religions are speaking to the SAME higher source, whether they like it or not... so, fighting religious wars are silly).I value Jesus Christ and do believe he is a messenger of God... if not, he was at the very least, a valuable teacher and inspiration.I live in the chapel of my mind... I meditate, I believe, and I'm spiritual. :-)Wow, this is not really "hero's thread" is it? It's a religious discussion!

Quote from: Travis-AGA on October 02, 2010, 08:44:13 PMI got the vibe from koko that it isn't necessarily the thread... but the topic being controversial?
Quote from: koko_99_2001 on October 02, 2010, 08:49:22 PMYeah, we have a rule that's been in effect since I joined which is generally no religion, no politics. Those are two topics that just can become so argumentative pretty quickly
