I don't know if God exists. I believe God exists, and that's where my faith remains. You could technically call me agnostic because I know that we can't know that God is real. We can believe it.

But in the end, faith trumps knowledge.

So, are you man enough to take that back? Consider

Fucking Egor... Dodgy

I'm a gnostic atheist through faith, but most of the breed are agnostic atheists, invalidating yer argument. Tongue

This is horrrible, and it is fear based. Not only are there so many flaws in the bible, but it is racist, sexist and much more. I wish I found out sooner. It hurts because I have spent sooo much time praying, wishing, and oing things for "god".

As Egor has once again proved (above) Yes

I understand why you would prefer to stay in a safe zone. Fair enough.

Agreed. Much the same way that I admit there is a possibility that one day I will be able to travel back in time and a get a deep-throat from Marilyn Monroe.

But I don't see any need to waste my life wishing for this to be true.

Atheism is a religious position.

Saying you're Christ and pretending you wrote a book of the Bible isn't a religious position.

It is a screwball position.

Nonsense is nonsense, but the history of nonsense is a very important science.

Did the guys who wrote the Bible know they were writing the Bible as such? Or say they were?

I think not.

Good for you Smile

When I read this thread, it put a smile on my face. I'm glad you were (and still are) able to tread the waters and listen to your own feeings. Continue to be yourself and take your time learning. Don't look too far into the labels right now.

It's really fun on the dark side; There's so many awesome people Thumbsup
