I guess all I can say is that I would like to survive death and I think out of body experiences are enough for me to have hope that there is life after death. I don't think that some people will...

If there is an afterlife, I would think there is a good chance that whether the arbiter is God or a supercommittee or whatever I might be judged for the things that I have done in this life. So I'd...

I hate religion as much as you guys do. I have my own personal beliefs. I do not and will never go to a church and have someone tell me what to believe.

I am an agnostic that leans theist. My position is that I have a lot of trouble believing in "God" because I am also an Ignostic, in that I tend to believe that the definition of God being an entity...

Thanks for applauding the fact that I do not blindly accept the "facts" that Jesus lived, that God exists, etc. I was just talking to my dad a few hours ago about God, and he said that he attended a...

I could argue then that theism is superior to both agnosticism and atheism, however I won't. If I did try to do that it would be just to play devil's advocate and see where the debate went. I was...
