Beliefs
 
After a conversation with a friend the other day I was surprised to find out she's now a born again christian and has been for the past 2 years

Anyhow the question of what do I believe in came around and for the life of me I couldn't think of a single thing
Is this normal or do some of us go through life with no set beliefs of any sort?

Please elaborate on having no set of beliefs. Do you mean in a religious sense or do you mean you literally do not believe anything?

Religious/spiritual etc.........Yeah I could have worded it a little better

I think it's perfectly normal to not have experienced any religious "phase" of sorts. A lot of what people believe has to do with what they were exposed to growing up. If religion or spirituality wasn't a part of your macrosystem it would make sense that it's not something you subscribe to.

Fair enough. I am a little amazed at the amount of people who feel compelled to ask why I choose not to believe

Tell me about it. I'm an ordained atheist reverend pursuing a Ph.D in Religious Studies.

Different lol. I'm just a self confessed non believer. Guess that makes me an atheist

I'm an atheist who lives in a heavily Christian populated area. I'm been getting dirty looks for years. Especially the 18 years I spent in church. Once I was out from under my moms thumb, she knew I wouldn't be going back. We don't discuss it anymore.

I couldn't honestly tell you who's what around here, but one thing I have noticed of late is the amount of people who are becoming born agains

I hold the notion that I'm one of 7 billion people on this planet living among people who are infinitely smarter than me and nobody can agree on what the hell is going on up there.

What the hell do I know? I'll find out when I die and live for me and my family/friends.
