    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.

    Roman Catholic. More of an Anglican anyway and I go to Anglican services with my mother who is an Anglican.

    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.
