This is the topic to discuss your beliefs and why you believe them. I hope to get some interesting discussions out of this thread, because I would love to get the mindset of different Religious individuals. I am an Atheist, and am happier now than when I were a Christian. When I was a Christian, I lived in a state of fear that a person in the sky was watching everything that I do and judging me, and when I die this person would send me to hell for all eternity because I have sinned and broken commandments, like we all have. Then I grew up a bit and realised the whole story is hogwash in my opinion, and that I shouldn't fear something I can't prove is real. So what are your beliefs or opinions? What are your reasons for believing what you believe? Do you ever doubt them? Do you live life by your beliefs? Have you gone against your beliefs? And any others that you can think of Note: This is a topic for discussion and possible debate, not angry attacks on each other. Please respect each others beliefs and don't criticise them for it (e.g you are stupid for believing/not believing) and don't try to convert each other (You should be a Christian/Atheist because...) Go at it!
