Atheist Or No...

Post by BittersweetSurrender » Tue Sep 13, 2005 6:12 pm

well, as usual, i'm having problems with questioning my religion... I think I'm atheist now or at least agnostic... i know i'm not christian and i'm starting to think twice about being wiccan as well. I just don't know anymore. it's so confusing.... i just wish i could make up my mind! grrr...

Remember that you should choose your religion according to what you believe is true. Religion isn't meant to revolve around us, so don't choose something because you like how it works. Choose it because you believe it.



Seek out the truth, and you will find it.
Your soul.

Your body.

Your mind.


Keep it Purified.

Like Elbereth said, you just have to keep searching Becky. When you find the truth you'll know.

Hmm...just follow your heart and do what seems right.



An atheist or wiccan? That's interesting - becaues they're on completely opposite sides of the spectrum. Wiccans beleive in the supernatural and think that they can cast spells.

Atheists are skeptics.



I'm an atheist and I think it's fabulous. Whatever floats your boat though. If you DO choose a religion - check out Buddhism. Amazing ideals...that is.



Cheers,

Youy have to keep searching around until something speaks to you and it feels right, whether it means being atheist or having a religion. There are all sorts of religions...maybe one will feel right for you and you'll feel comfortable with that and it matches the beliefs you have?

Start with the fundamental questions. You cannot know anything unless you know what composes something. That is, You cannot know X without defining X. More often then not, the image of God is distorted by different interpretations of God's behavior. However, the true question is that no one can know God's behavior without knowing what God is. Perhaps your dilemma is exactly that, what is God? Or, why exactly do the powers of wicca exist?



As for Atheists being skeptics, I beg to differ. Atheists are not skeptics; they are people who have concluded their reasoning. To be skeptical is to question concepts; atheists have decided on concepts.

Make a list of what you believe compare this with a variety of beliefs whichever matches you could be that but for now you are just you continue the search for what you find to be most right...-MARY
