    God is a concept by which we measure our pain.

    No, it has good values in general. Then comes the genocide and murderous history. The con’s outweigh the pro’s IMO.

    Guess I’m agnostic. Think religion can be good for people who need something to believe in and live their life better, also makes people incredibly fucking stupid and divides.

    Was raised in a very Christian home but I'm not at all religious anymore. I understand the appeal of it for a sense of community and all that though. When your social life revolves around it it's almost irrelevant whether the actual stories are true or not.

    Agnostic atheist. Grew up Episcopalian.

    Here's an annoying chart to help explain the difference in each term.

    This describes me as well. I feel what I guess would be deemed a spiritual connection with things from time to time. Nature in particular. But I don't believe religion is at all involved.

    I would never claim to know for a fact that there's no higher being. But if there is one, there's no way that it cares if I'm masterbating or not.

    The Christian idea of a human-like, white flowing beard God is silly. Jesus seems like a rad dude, but probably not the messiah.

    But I believe there is something beyond human consciousness and life on earth. Something greater than myself. What it is, I have no idea.

    I've seen churches that are very inclusive and the members seem genuinely interested in helping/uplifting people. But yeah a lot of churches are just awful and exist to reinforce the idea that they are better than other people.

    Same besides growing up in the church. I believe there is more and something better. Like a next level of consciousness or something like that. The whole god and rules to get in thing is some dumb shit to me.

    Glad to see so few yeses. My hope would be that humanity has turned a corner and religion dies. But then I think about how easy conspiracy theories and bizarre pseudoscience spreads on the internet and I realize that it’s impossible.

    I am. I’m on the Board of Directors for a small church. The pastors are very liberal. Huge supporters of BLM. Will not have services because they know our at risk members will come and put themselves at risk so are doing everything online. We have weekly meetings that is solely about how can we help people in our community. It’s the least judgmental group of people I’ve been around with a church.

    We meet every month at a local brewery and make bag lunches for homeless people in the area. Love it. I really got fed up with the large churches I attended growing up. It’s actually made me enjoy church and my religion again.

    Even though I don’t buy into religion, I have no problem with those that use it and benefit from it.

    We all need faith in something at times and do what works best for you.
