    Darling, have you ever read my posts? I NEVER worry about what others think.


    Ok, at the risk of putting yet one more log on the fire....


    I believe in the miracle of biology, not theology.

    Haha, I like that phrase.

    As for me, I am a theistic evolutionist.

    No

    I am a devout Catholic.

    I would go into the whole thing and how I became strong in my belief but I don't feel like getting flamed. Though, it has helped me through my girlfriend's...er...fiancee's illness.

    I believe there is something, but I don't subscribe to anything that the major religion has on the books.

    I'm not particularly religious here but just curious- what evidence needs to manifest for you being an agnostic to believe that there is a God?

    If you can't answer that I'd say you are an atheist.

    Yes. I come from solid protestant stock. I heard the words but they never touched my heart or nor did they lead to suspension of disbelief.

    That presupposes that one thinks empiricism is the only path to truth.

    An atheist, but if a big monty python type foot came down from the aureate rimmed clouds and crushed me for my disbelief then I'd change my mind.

    Do I feel a discussion concerning epistemology coming on?

    Haha, yes, its inevitable when someone brings up faith and evidence.

    I am a devout scientist, but also a devout Kuhnist when it comes to empiricism. This is how I can remain a devout theist.

    JA, did you come to religion on your own or did you inherit it from your folks as most people get their faith?

    How much of your faith shapes who you are as a person? What would you be like with out it?

    You are interesting in that you have made these seemingly contradictory belief systems make sense in your life.
