    I'm agnostic. I'm completely open to there being a god, but I don't specifically follow any one religion. I normally describe it as I don't specifically believe in anything, but I also don't specifically NOT believe in anything.

    No, I do not. Simply not enough evidence, and a 2,000 year old book just isn't enough proof for me to believe in something I can't see. I'll leave it at that.

    I am unsure, agnostic atheist. I was born in a Christian family and as a kid went to Sunday school a lot, but I can't 100% believe or disbelieve in anything unless there's proven facts and evidence.
    Any topic on whether or not you believe in God reminds me of this picture:

    I do believe in God

    I attribute it to my Catholic upbringing and as an adult being my company most times am alone

    I'm the same as you, I don't know. To me sometimes god sounds like some kind of evil overlord they things he supposedly did to people...

    I think if God wanted us to know he was real he would show himself, not give us some vague book that doesn't make any sense.

    I think about Marry...god impregnated her, to me that sounds creepy like...we're suppose to be his children and then he magically makes one of them pregnant with the son of god only for him to die for our sins? That doesn't make any sense to me (and sorry if that's a butched up version of the bible I haven't read it in years.)

    I started watching DarkMatter2525 and seeing his channel really made me question things, it really changed my perspective on the whole god thing. Before watching him I believed in a higher power just questioning it every now and then but now I have nothing but questions. He has so many good points in his videos...

    I don't believe in God. I don't believe in the bible either. A lot of it sounds like made up shit (like fitting two of every animal in the world on one ark) and a lot of its meaning is really outdated. Like we don't stone people or lock away women on their menstrual cycle anymore! The bible needs an update, I refuse to learn lessons from such an obsolete, sexist, and vindictive book. I have no problem with people who believe in all of this though. I just am sooo sick of having it shoved down my throat all the time. :/

    They're as brilliant as they are humorous, a lot of really good points in there. If the world would watch them with an open mind, I feel like it would be a better and more accepting place.

    I didn't quite receive it with the same welcoming attitude when I was still in heavy denial about it, though.

    It's complicated. I was raised Catholic, but have received so many mixed messages from different faiths, it seems so hypocritical. Perhaps on some level I do, but couldn't tell you if God is a he, she, or something else entirely, let alone what they wish for me! Funny how much of human nature this sort of debate reveals...

    Raised as a Catholic, but I grew out of that long ago. As for my beliefs, I don't necessarily believe in God, but I do think that there's something out there. By something I don't think it's an invisible dude up in the sky with a huge-ass beard, but I don't think it was just a lucky coincidence that life popped up and evolved on an Earth that just so happened to have everything needed to sustain said life.

    Nope. I'm atheist for now. The way I see it asking someone if there's a God is asking do you believe it's more important to know there's something greater than you, or that you're equal to every other person and animal, no better, no worst. I take religion as a tool to gain morals, and I think the latter is more useful. Just me, I'm open to any other opinions and accept that my view is somewhat controversial and probably wrong. Just what I think.

    i'm an agnostic leaning towards atheism, so i acknowledge the possibility of there being a god, but i don't think there is. we could be in an advanced simulation, you never know.

    I happen to believe as well, however.. I don't hold the bible to much value as it was written by man. The word of God is not a word.

    I'm not sure, I'm trying to figure thing out.
    I was raised christian but currently I think the label that fits me the most is agnostic.

    I believe in Gods, plural. I'm pagan.

    I don't openly practice because I'm still really new to it, though.

    I'm agnostic about it, but yes. It's not really something I think of as much anymore, but the subject fascinated me at one time. All the religions I came across were disappointing to me in some way or another however so I invented my own thing, thinking of god and such in a way that made the most sense to me, how I viewed the universe, and what wouldn't conflict with science and hopefully any new information I would come across in life. I do find that it helps me in some ways, especially in how I want to view the world and how I want to be.
