    And because of that I find it odd people can say that God, or something of such nature, does not exist. It's like saying, "I know what everything is inside and outside of the universe, I know everything". And that's wrong because we don't.

    I suppose the same thing could be said about people who say God does exist. But that's somewhat different, that's faith, which isn't based on proof.
    You are certainly right. It is stupid to say with certainty that "God does not exist", because to do so would require that you prove that there is not even the slightest possibility at all of the existence of any God. I would say that is pretty much impossible.

    However, it is not illogical to say that you do not believe in God but are open to the possibility. This is the position I take because even though I can see no convincing evidence for God's existence, I do not pretend that such a possibility does not exist.

    Also, faith (defined as belief without evidence) is the most ridiculous excuse for a belief ever.

    Christians are the worst man. Proselytizing in every single uni I go.

    Re: Religious affiliation

    Buddhist, was raised as one and almost everyone of my ethnicity is one, didn't want to be one for a while because I went to an all-white primary school where most people were Christian, and then went back to it in the middle of high school because I liked it the most out of all the religions I researched.

    Re: Religious affiliation

    Raised a Muslim but I just don’t agree with Islam’s thoughts on homosexuality and non-Muslims. Can’t follow a religion you don’t approve of.

    Irreligious and agnostic.

    Scientology because it's the only one that makes sense and is consistent with all known physical laws, and no one can refute it.

    No that is not the agreed definition of faith. So it worth checking what 'faith' means. There is not one agreed definition on it

    e.g.
    Oxford Anglican theologian W. H. Griffith-Thomas (1861–1924), who states that faith is "not blind, but intelligent" and that it "commences with the conviction of the mind based on adequate evidence...", which McGrath sees as "a good and reliable definition, synthesizing the core elements of the characteristic Christian understanding of faith"

    The difference is that generally speaking the person who make such comment is irreligious, rationalist, or naturalist (or all of the above).

    100% atheist. Imo, I just don't see how a god can exist.

    Re: Religious affiliation

    See that's the great thing about scientology, there is no "god" pushed on you, but rather you discover more about yourself and how humans ourselves are the gods. I'd strongly urge anyone to go out and read one of L. Ron Hubbard's books, and finding their thetan levels, and hopefully become a member of this open minded religion.

    Re: Religious affiliation

    Okay, but seriously... There are 40,000+ different denominations of Christianity (e.g. Anglican, catholic, Lutheran, orthodox, Presbyterian, Protestant... the list goes on). So everyone who selected 'Christianity' apart from believing in one god, has largely varying beliefs from one another.
