Ok. So then I guess I shouldn't consider myself a Catholic. Does that make me agnostic? I know that I have a lot to learn about Catholicism, so I guess I shouldn't claim faith before I understand it. My mistake.

Dude....I have a baby in the slow cooker as we speak! WTF?? I started it before I heard about the rule change, so I still get to eat it, right?
Oh, sorry guys. It looks like I was using a illegitimate source. According to the official atheist diet commission babies are still on the menu. It also looks like I was wrong about the virgin sacrifice as well. The atheist immorality commission is saying that the sacrifices are back on for those who can attend. I apologize for the scare.

Just an outsider looking inn.

Hey Chris, welcome to the forums! First off, you gotta stop apologizing so much, the bastards we are around here won't stand for it. Second, I congratulate you for having what seems to be an open, truth seeking mind. I didn't have one for a long time, and only recently have had the gumption to really look into what it is I believe and why I believe it. Trust me, it feels good to have a clear conscience on this religion stuff.

Don't let the blowhards get to you, ask some good honest questions and you should get some good honest answers. Yes

RE: Catholic Introduction
We apologize for Bucky. He's been really stressed out dealing with a couple of close-minded and dim-witted Christians. One of them wouldn't have been so bad, except he came on here with totally the wrong attitude to start and made enemies of half the forum (me not least among them) and is unwilling to reconcile. The other's just an idiot.



You're off to a good start though. Don't be so apologetic. You're here to learn. Just don't switch to preaching mode on us...

It works, bitches.

RE: Catholic Introduction
Catholics at least real ones are supposed to believe everything the church teaches is 100% infallible. Unfortunately that doesn't hold up against rational thought.

The more you learn the more you know and the more you begin to see its all so convoluted with a dash of bat-shit crazy.

RE: Catholic Introduction
Chris,

Realistically, lots of people are Catholics but don't accept what the church teaches about everything. I'll leave the quality of your Catholicism between you and your priests.

I'm kind of new here myself, so I guess I'm not exactly on the welcoming committee just yet, but I appreciate your approach, as it will help me deal with respectful conversations with opposing viewpoints on this subject. I haven't had any practice, so if I appear disrespectful at any point, please don't take it too personally, and feel free to point it out to me.

My problems with Catholicism (and Christianity in general) are too numerous to mention, but the bottom line is this: there is much in the Bible that is acknowledged by Catholics to be mythology and not history. Adam and Eve, the Great Flood, etc. By what logic do you (assuming you do) dismiss those stories as historically untrue, yet you embrace CLEARLY made up stuff like the Immaculate Conception (of Mary, not Jesus) and the (awfully big) Assumption of Mary as true? I've grown to realize that the evidence of Jesus' resurrection is scant at best. The evidence of the immaculate conception and the assumption of Mary doesn't even rise to the level of scant.

If you accept those doctrines, on what grounds? If you reject them, then I think you really need to ask why you consider yourself Catholic in the first place.

RE: Catholic Introduction
I was born and raised catholic also. Hell, my kids go to a catholic school. (way better than public me thinks) As I got older, I thought that Catholicism was a bit extrme, and decided to go to a diffrent church. It was more evangelical/protestant/foursquare. I like their approach waaay better. And yes, go ahead....make fun whatever, I am a Christian on here. But, I have agnostic thoughts, and athiests thoughts all the time. I do not claim to be right, and I never push anybody to beleive what I do. I stumbled across this website on accident when searching, and liked the forum. I question meaning of existance, and try to not let it depress me lol.
I can't stand Christian trolling. They need to be smited.
