Sad Can you believe in a God & not organized religion?
So my sister is telling me that she believes in a "source" but not religion. Which I am assuming she means, organized religion & by "source" she means nature. smh LOL I can't... in no way, shape, or form stand my siblings!

My niece believes that there is a god because someone had to think nature out to create it as miraculous as it is. She also admires jesus. She doesn't believe in any organized religion.

Have you tried introducing her to evolution?

Nope, I don't have contact with her. I don't much like her. She can believe in whatever she likes.

Is it still called Veridicanism?
