Kind of a science/religion thread. I feel like its the most modest religion since you are basically admitting you do not know where the universe came from, and thats fine. Personally im a secular humanist/Agnostic but i am fairly open minded to all religions, excluding mormonism, i have 0 respect for their religion. After reading the Cosmos and watching the full series on netflix its hard to make a direct stance on belief in anything and not alot of people understand that.
A cool thing i read that kind of puts the entire thing into perspective, and gives reason.
Theism: You do not know every event that has ever occured and everything that has ever existed therefore, you do not have proper reason to state whether or not there is a god/gods
Atheism: Same thing really just stating that there is no god/gods
Agnosticism: You accept that you dont know everything so you follow the current knowledge and evidence.
ages 3-7 i was catholic and 7-10 mormon, and my step mom is muslim, so i have a decent understanding of the major religions. I try to give them a chance but i never can find myself to just have blind faith play a role in my core beliefs.
When i try to explain my beliefs to other people i become a heathen and they just look at me like a fucking asshole because i dont necessarily believe in a god.
Im sure there is some other NS'ers with similar thoughts/issues
