Do you believe in God?

No.

Are you at all religious? If so, what religion are you?

No.

What, if anything, do you believe in? Why?

I believe in love and care. From there, it makes me comfortable with anything and any possiblities. From there, I will and would have my life live to the fullest. From there, even things that I am disagree will eventually 'get-over'. From there, it enables me to think independantly and able to sort out many pre-culture-and-idealogy-invasions. It makes you feel smaller but deeper, modesty but true sensitivity.

What do you think happens when we die?
I would like to translate my life-quote from Chinese into English: live till old, learn till old, old till die, learn till die and die till learn even die till live!

Does it matter if there is a God? Perhaps the only thing that really matters is to ask the question.

Do you believe in God?

Not in the conventional sense - no.

Are you at all religious? If so, what religion are you?

No - but I believe I am spiritual and I definitely have faith, just not in a singular individual or entity.

I was raised to be a good Catholic/Episcopalian mutt. After much soul-searching and researching other religious views, I chose Wicca. Over the years, it has "morphed" into a mix of multiple beliefs - taking particular parts of several ideologies and combining them into something that makes sense for me.

What, if anything, do you believe in? Why?

I believe that everything living and breathing - plants, animals, humans - have a spirit (and soul) of some type. If something is "born, grows and dies", it is comprised of and produces/releases energy. That energy is the spirit/soul of that living thing. I also feel there is more to that energy than we are capable of understanding at this point in time. Because I am also an "evolutionist", I do not believe that one entity created the world in six days, nor that one entitiy oversees all. So, with that said, I am spiritual and have faith in things that have gone before and are yet to come.

What do you think happens when we die?

Our (spirit/soul) energy is released and added to the mix of all the other energy out there. If energy can neither be created nor destroyed, then it is a logical conclusion for me. And, because I think there is more to energy than we know - no one can really predict what type of influences it has on our own existence. Our bodies - they become worm food that the worms can't get to because of cement vaults and metal-lined caskets. What a waste! We should be giving back to the earth since we don't need our bodies anymore. But, I digress and you said no religious arguments.

Do you believe in God?

Yes

Are you at all religious? If so, what religion are you?

In wot sense do you mean religious? Iam a believer in the Jesus Christ (hence a Christian, see Acts where they were called Christians first at Antioch after believing the message Paul preached).

I wouldnt call myself religious but i do attend my church if thats what you wanna call it, its a gathering place, for me - basically a building where local christians meet together in. Otherwise known as Gospel Hall. If you wanna put a name to my religion we're sometimes called the 'brethren'.

What, if anything, do you believe in? Why?
I believe all that is written in the Holy Bible as that is what my faith is about - believing the Bible to be the written Word of God, and i can say i believe every bit of it. I dont understand it all but i believe it all, i find it amazing! i learn new stuff each day from it, i can say it is entirely up to date as well! i.e all the stuff thats happening currently (well not specific things, but in a wider picture) its all there!

What do you think happens when we die?
Well according to the Bible, there are only two destinys!

Heaven! or Hell! not complicated is it!

Heaven for those who believe in Jesus as the Christ the Son of God who came to die on the cross for sinners and accept Gods word to be true

or Hell for those who dont - simple! One could continue doing nothing about their eternal destiny and end up here, but i dont believe it will happen anyone without a choice!

We all have a will or our own to choose our own destiny according to the Word of God! Some choose to believe it, others dont!

but God wishes that everyone should believe , check out 1 Timothy chapter 2 in the Bible "For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour, Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth , For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus"

Im only stating my beliefs/views so feel free to ask me regarding it if you want!
