I love being Catholic

Having a wholehearted belief and love in God and the Trinity just feels wonderful

You cannot force yourself to believe but if you contemplate it you may just have a revelation.

I think my big thing with Catholicism is Jesus

I love Jesus, he's seriously the coolest guy ever to exist

I agree with these guys, if I had to be something other than atheist I would be buddhist.

Try religous history til' you find what you like. Or you can take the other route like paganism and be a cool witch until you die and go to hell.

If you grew up not believing in religion, or perhaps never being taught, or whatever the case may be... If you have your own beliefs about life, then that is it. Period. Don't look for answers from other people's ideas. Just be who you are. Educate yourself, but don't just blindly believe in something because you read it in a book. All I'm saying is that you have probably already formed beliefs of your own. You can't just check out different religions to figure out what kind of beliefs you own in your mind. That kind of thing will come from within. Anything you could grasp from the outside will be someone else's thought. You will believe in someone elses beliefs. That is a path you don't want to go down. You will find yourself constantly combating the issues in your head. You need to just find a quiet place to be, and do some soul searching. Try mediatating. It sounds corny, but you need to know yourself before you can look for any truth. You need honesty to be within you. If your will is good, you might just find out that you don't need anyone to tell you you're right or wrong about it. You will be right for yourself, and it will be your opinion. People should respect other people's opinions.

An atheist user named Earfetish wrote this to me on the subject of dying without an afterlife:

"It's gonna happen anyway. It's pretty good to accept the finality of death because it makes life more precious and special and important.

Loads of things could've gone wrong for me not to be here, like it was a fucking long shot as a sperm, and it was a long shot for my mum and dad too, and for some woman who lived thousands of years ago, but one day I was conceived, and later born, and got the insanely lucky chance to experience life, and intelligent life no less. Out of phenomenal chance, I occurred, and between two long voids of nothingness, I got to look around and appreciate the world; I got to eat food and drink beer and smoke weed and trip and look at beautiful scenery and beautiful women, I got to feel pain and lust and love and desperation and agony and depression, I got to take a massive shit that I needed, have sex, wank, feel pleasure and shame, listen to music, and do so many crazy things that are fucking fantastic.

Also, I was lucky enough to have been born in 1988, where I could get everything on demand, and the chances are that when I die life will be even more amazing. I get to be a human, in 2007, on the internet, drinking beer and listening to death metal, and I even get to go on a plane and go to New York and Malaysia and go to concerts and do pretty much anything I want.

It may well be that the only reason that I think the Earth is so good is because my species has evolved in line with the Earth's features and therefore appreciate the Earth, but that's all thanks to the majesty of evolution, and that's a concept many atheists hold dear to their heart, as it is pretty fascinating.

I am aware that I have only got this one shot, and I was very lucky for getting it because it was sheer chance, but here I am, fucking madly fortunately, like beyond belief, and when I die that's it all over, so I've got a phenomenal appreciation for every moment, really, wasted or not, at least it was experienced.

I see why you'd feel good thinking that God put you here and will take you back, or you were reincarnated and you live forever, but it's like you're missing so much out of life. And you really do only get the one, and you're lucky if you get more than 70 years.

You'd be lucky if you got more than 6 years if you lived a few centuries ago, too." - (Source)

I like being an atheist and that essay even helped me at least somewhat. I'm not against religion like Christianity, even though I have problems with Christianity in particular. (That goes for some of its people like those who protect pedophile rapists in order to keep the religion's dignity.) Religion is good for making people positive and having them find meaning in their lives. I dunno. I'm being a wishful thinker, right now, since I haven't bothered with the negative aspects of religion itself.

look into gnosticism It's different from most religions, It promotes individuality, finding your own understanding of "god" and a different view of the evil, Evil as ignorance.

Here is a place you can start.

What a load of bullshit, only if you never actually thought about morality/philosophy and your religious views seriously can you believe this.

So you don't want to be an atheist anymore? Try believing in a God then, if you were strictly atheist you will find this a hard feet.

Agnosticism isn't a religion, nor is it mutually exclusive with atheism or theism.

The fact that you are saying everything you are saying right now just goes to show you did't even know why you were an atheist to begin with. Blind lack of faith is just as stupid as blind faith.

The whole, "atheism doesn't exclude agnosticism," argument is just an atheists attempt to pretend that they have more people backing them up than they really do. Agnosticism is not religion, not theism, not atheism. It's the ideal middle ground, between all the wrong people.

It really all depends on what definitions you are using. When I hear the term agnostic I tend to think of someone that thinks whether a god exists or not is unknowable. By this definition an agnostic could be a theist or an atheist. If you're using the definition that states agnosticism is the refusal to believe there is a god and refusal to believe there isn't a god, that still falls under the broad definition of atheism.

Some people think that Jesus is the greatest role model of all time, but even they hate religion. It is obvious then that the least harmful religion would be Christianity because if you truly follow the greatest teacher of all time, there is simply no way that you can do anything wrong in your life. Hold it above all other things.

Some people think they've been abducted by aliens. Some people think a lot of things.

if you truly follow the greatest teacher of all time, there is simply no way that you can do anything wrong in your life.

So then uh... who's truly following Jesus?
