There are two other monotheistic religions ya know. But, they're just as flawed as christianity so, it doesn't matter. I think agnostic or atheism is the way to go. I switch back an forth between the two. People believe what comforts them. It's not comforting to me that whatever put us here wanted things this way.

Judaism and Islam?
Judaism doesn't really suit me.

And I personally believe that the Koran has been sorely misinterpretted by the entire Islamic community. Don't ask me why, but don't you find it strange that a whole group of people who read the same book (the Koran) and live by it have formed so many different sects (73 to be exact) because they can't all agree on the proper way to praise and worship? WTF, you guys are all living by the Koran supposedly.

And I'm pretty sure you can be both agnostic and atheist at the same time.

Si, senorita. The reason why there are so many different interpetations of the Quran is that there really is no church. There is nobody there to guide what was meant when it was written. Just like with any text with time the meaning starts fading away with time because the language changes. Considering that a lot of the Quran was written while Mohammad was considered a wolf's head [I don't think that's the term but it is a term for it so that's what I'm going with] there can be a lot of misleading messages. But, the followers of Islam have done nothing worse than what christians have done. Actually if you put their history side by side it's kinda weird how parallel they are. You can't be agnostic and atheist at the same time because agnostic you think there's something and atheist you think there's nothing.

Yes I have. If you havn't you're an idiot who shouldn't be posting in this thread about how you are an athiest and whatnot. I think it's called ignorance.

I'm not even going here since you don't understand the whole point of the bible.

In all homesty though, I mean no blasphemy to god, it's just. . . a little far fetched.
I put the bible on an even level with the big bang theory in terms of far fetchedness.

Jehovah's Witnesses have to spread gods word, it is something they have to do. It's not their fault people be assholes to them.

Thankyou.

There are types of atheism that are virtually identical to agnosticism. Atheism isn't always the firm incredulity in any sort of God.

Same here.

I never think the exact same thing I go between the extremes of each. But no matter what I think it can always be classified in those two. I hope that clarifys.

Fortunately for me I have read a bible. And my religious beliefs are always topsy turvy. For the most part, I'm just a very spiritual person. (not that my religious affiliation matters cause never once in this post did I say I was agnostic or atheist)

Don't need to. I'm not Christian.

Maybe so. But if you knock on my door and I tell you away the first time but you continue to knock, I will get you off my property one way or another using whatever means necessary.
If you come to my door the next day, and the day after that, and the day after that, it is called harassment and I have a problem with that.

I think Jehovah Witnesses are funny because they believe like only cerca 44,000 people are gonna make it into heaven but yet they try and spread their religion to everyone.

A few years ago these two old Jehovah's Witnesses would come to my door every saturday at about 10 in the morning so me and my sister once got dressed in bikinis and answered the door and pretended we were gay lovers.
They flipped out.

Good times
