In my honest opinon religion is somewhat a joke.
Not saying it's bad or anything, but I just believe that people should just have their own beliefs.
I myself am Agnostic and am not sure of what there is, but I feel that there is something greater.
Religion was heavily pushed on me as a young child (My mother singing religious songs, praying 24/7, church, and then a catholic high school). It pushed me more away from the church more than anything.
However I did get to see into it and see how it all works.

Now don't get me wrong, religion is alright and should be used as a guide line. But not have to be followed down to every word and practice.
And to have a common faith with a community is also nice. But saying these people are not welcomed or cannot receive this or that is a bit wacky and ironic saying we should invite everyone in no matter what.

That's why I like to follow my own road and see where it leads. Just to be the best person I can and share my love with others.
Just do the best I can and hope that the greater power that I believe is out there does it's best :)

Thoughts on that matter? Anyone do the same or exact opposite?

I agree with this.
I also believe that religion isn't what it's portrayed to be (the big guy in the sky answering prayers etc etc). I simply think that religion is a morale booster. I grew up believing in God, not heavily but I prayed every now and then, went to church most Sundays etc.
However over the years I've come to realise it's not what people say it is and I just think it's there to help people feel better about them selves. For example if you were really stressed out about something and you felt alone, it wouldn't be the nicest feeling. But if you were to 'talk' to God about it then you'd feel lighter, knowing someone's got your back.

The whole Heaven and Hell thing is bull imo. I believe there's life after death, you just simply move on to another life.

So you believe in reincarnation? Or am I wrong?
Just wondering.

Yes, you're right. Sorry I thought I put that in my post.. >_< except I don't believe in the 'if you're good you'll come back as a bird' or 'if you're bad you'll come back as an insect' aspect. I simply think you'll start over a normal life again as a human being.

It just seems like the most logical thing imo. Even I don't completely understand why I believe it, I just do ^_^ lol.

Your soul just moves on to the next "host" maybe? Or am I talking through my ass?

I suppose you're right Delta, you have no memory of your previous lives etc obviously. But you just continue to live on.

I think a belief in a God can be a good thing sometimes but I don't think you should believe everything that you are told about religion.

Even some preists know/admit that some stories in the bible are bull shit.

I'm not sure what priests you are talking about but they are supposed to act like the bible is true in every way.
