Question What's your religion?

Just curious to see what kind of a religious demographic we have going on here at the illustrious SCMBs....
Also curious if you've claimed one faith your whole life or changed it at some point.

Myself I was raised Christian (seventh-day adventist), but now I am seated in the Agnostic section, with a completely open mind looking at it from all angles... and I think Zecharia Sitchin might be onto something with the new analysis of Genesis.

I learned when I was getting married to a Catholic woman that I was a heathen... That's what the local priest called me, anyway. No word on whether he was one of those who was sued for mollestaton...

I also learned that I was apparently baptized in an Episcopal church, but the only church I ever attended while growing up, with my grandma, was a Baptist one.

I always claimed to be agnostic till I understood that that designation didn't cover it.

I just plain ol' don't care. God, no God, makes no difference to me.

Dave

I couldn't really tell you what i believ to be honest. I don't think there is a god the way it is told now. But i don't think that everything started from a big explosion either.

Problem is, living in the deep south, these views could be a problem, so i just keep my opinions to myself.

What's their new analysis of Genesis, SB....?



Btw, I say that Jesus is the Christ.

If you want to call that my "religion," have at it.

An atheist is one who double-posts.

Err.....

Actually, 'bird, it's someone who believes there is no God.

Lee, the numbers are from http://www.adherents.com/

poptart, in a nutshell, Sitchin believes that there is a 12th planet in our solar system (counting the sun and our moon), and that it makes a close pass by us every 3600 years. There are many correlations between Genesis and other books of that time period to indicate that the "Gods" of that time were actually beings from this planet, who genetically infused early hominids on our planet with their DNA to create us, initially to be workers.
Still with me? Here's more on it: http://xfacts.com/x.htm
fascinating stuff..

gconnhokiebird- an atheist is someone who does not believe in the existence of a God or Gods.

Good point, 'bird.

I actually thought half the people on this site were the love children of Richard Simmons and Chris Lowell.

My bad.
