ZJ-jaan,

I believe in God but do not belong to nor believe in any "religion".
Is it possible to create an option for this as well if it's not too late?

Fixed

Postby Ahreeman X » Wed Dec 22, 2004 1:35 pm

Sir ZJ:

I have fixed your poll & added the option:

Non Denominational

For those who believe in God (Supreme Being), yet not a specific Religion.

Also have in mind that for people to vote on this poll, they must be members. Readers of IPC cannot vote here! So for those who visited the poll but could not vote, I suggest win over your fears & join IPC, so you can vote! However, everyone can vote in IPC Surveys:

http://members.aol.com/ahreemanx/page18.html

And I believe there are more elaborated poll questions on people's religion over there.

Look @ Religion questions in IPC Surveys & let me know if you want me to add more options to your poll? The structure of the poll is not general nor complete! But its up to you!

Cheers

Dear prologicam,


Why can't I believe in God without being a follower of a religion?
I believe in God and have made up my own mind of what he would expect from a "good person" and try to live by those expectations.

I don't slice my head with a knife in memory of some savage arab.
I don't pray to Jesus to save me.
I don't pray to several gods (hinduism)
.........

Faith in God is something i'm not that keen on discussing. One could use all the LOGIC there is and try to convince me but it would not help. I've made up my mind. Finally I don't think believing in God makes me less of a effective/efficient person solely for believing in a "supreme being", "creator" whatever you would like to call it.

Coming from two different viewpoints we could ask each other how is it possible for God to exist? and I could ask how did everything come to exist? If there was just a black empty space before the beginning of everything how did that come to being? and how did God come to be?

It could go on forever in circles and the end result would be a whole bunch of headache! Actually I got one right now trying to look at it from both points of view.

](*,)

It's really confusing but as long as it does no one harm there should be no problem. I'm afraid you won't be able to get anything useful out of this specific topic from me

Forever confused compatriot,

P.S. I guess we will find out all our answers in regards to this once we pass away :angel:

Dear prologicam,

I guess it would be too much to ask how many other beliefs do you have that you cherish and not wanting to change? Then I'd know not to ask you those to consider.


I'm not sure what you mean here. I believe that no human being deserves to be stoned to death or that a country has the right to defend its citizen/territory if attacked or if threatened; I wouldn't easily be able to change these "beliefs"...
