I suppose I'm agnostic, leaning towards Catholicism. though I'm not even sure of that. I only say that as my mums Polish side of the family are Catholics and my girlfriends family is too. Just sort of seems natural. Though I believe in science too, even the most religious people I know are split between the 2.
Never go into a church though, at least not for that Sunday jazz.

I'd like to believe when I die Im able to go to a place like Heaven. Simply because if nothing happened when I died it would just suck on so many levels.

I suppose I'm an athiest. My belief is that life only exists in memories. Once you die, you simply cease to exist. You have no reccolection of your own existence since you are not alive to remember it, and there is nowhere to go because heaven is just a myth written by man to give purpose and direction to our lives. Instead, you can only attain immortality through your name, your offspring, and your life's work. The key to eternal life isn't in going to church every Sunday, but rather in changing the world, raising a child, writing a novel, achieving glory, or just being remembered as a great guy who touched a lot of people. Somewhere along the line though you have to leave a mark that says "I was here. I had a purpose." Without that, your life was for nothing. It never happened.

i'm a Circyist. In circyism, you achieve immortality by going to a lab and putting your brain inside a giant robot that never dies.

But seriously speaking, I kind of believe the same than kirby smith. Cuz life starts when you are born. Some religious fanatic can come and say the soul is inserted into the child's body at the moment it pops into a tiny embrion, but i think it starts when you are a concient being.
I think being alive is the same as being concient beings. When you die, your brain doesnt move anymore, so pretty much nothing is going on. I don't discard the posibility of your selfawareness still wander off space without the limitations of the body, expanding into the void, like sauce that falls onto a circy's belly and makes a mess of everything...

That's where the argument lies, Dogzer. When does the child become conscious? babies kick and do stuff inside the womb, is that conscious? what's your earliest memory, did you only begin life at that exact moment, what if you lose that memory in the future?

I have restrained myself this fare but I must point out one very week point in Dogzers argument.

"I think being alive is the same as being concient beings."

Okay, are you saying that people in comas are not alive? Are you saying that if I get knocked out and do not have consciousness I'm dead? Many people have gone through states of unconscious (sickness, coma...etc.) and still remained very much alive! So, I would have some serious objections to your definition.

"I suppose I'm agnostic, leaning towards Catholicism.

Is that where you don't believe in anything, yet still feel guilty about it?

It's interesting about the consciousness thing. My first memory is my third birthday (I got a toy steering wheel). I know nothing of before then, apart from secondary sources (mum and dad). Now, if I don't have any recollection of the first three years of my life, how can I be sure that I lived them? If life is indeed lived through memories, that means I was "born" on my third birthday, and have lived in sporadic moments until now.

"I think being alive is the same as being concient beings."
This can be argued to and fro, but nobody could ever be sure of this IMO. Exactly the same as the God situation. If neither side of the argument can be proved, neither side can be disproved. And, in all honesty, does it even matter? What is inherently unknowable is a useless thing to try to suss out.

I could be wrong (although my "belief" does admit that).

Well, in seeking truth you probably want to go with what has the most evidence...If Christianity really is true then its really going to be bad for those who don't believe it. I really think its of upmost importance in you life to at least try to find the truth.

I'm actually Christian (Greek Orthodox), but I don't take the Bible literally. As Brandon said, Science can explain many things, and I think that Science ties into religion.

Several born-agains preach that you go to hell if you don't follow Christianity. I disagree. It all has to do with how good of a person you are.

My point is though that there is no evidence, and no way of getting evidence. So why put your faith in something that can't be proved?

"I really think its of upmost importance in you life to at least try to find the truth."

Believe me, I've tried, and that's all I came up with.

'Officially' I am Christian - like I was Christened or baptised or whatever you call it, when I was a baby
But I don't personally believe in religion - in fact I don't really believe in much.. I just think you're born, you live and then you die. Although it would be nice to go to heaven and all that when you die
