Technically I'm an atheist too. I say 'technically' because I don't want to be associated with the typical stereotypes of atheism. I don't try to alter people's beliefs, and am interested in religion as a whole. The irony here is that I'm also an ordained minister through the Universal Life Church :o. Now that's a story in and of itself. 8)

I'm nondenominational.  Some people call me a wuss, but none of the religions available to my region really appeal to me, given I was raised Catholic and then Baptist... I haven't found a good combination of the two yet.

I don't bother trying to get people to become atheist because religious people are really stubborn. Plus I hate it when muslims,cathlics,etc. preach to me about their religion. So I don't argue against it, but I don't support it in any form. The only time I get angry at religion is when it influences politics (gay marriage,stem cell research,etc.), that's just ridiculous.

I'm an athiest when I'm asked to catagorize myself.

religious people are really stubborn.

I once got into a 'heated debate' over the exsistance of God with someone who was greek orthodox. I wasn't trying to convert her, just pointing out how I see religion in general and she got really offended and afterwards she wouldnt talk to me for over a week. I learned from that experience to not get into religious arguements ever again..

I'm not saying that ALL religious people are stubborn, just some I have met take as a personal attack when you give reasons why you think their diety might be fictional.

I always found the fact that Lucifer in latin means "bringing light" pretty interesting.

That's what I love about public forums and boards (with mature folks).  It's amazing to learn the different views one has and it's effect on their life.  I can't imagine what some people have to go through being anything *but* Christian in America today, especially after the 9/11 attack.  Most people would rather hold a cross into your face or call you a terrorist than to hear your side of the story.  I get enough flak living in the deep south and not being any sort of religion.  It's very unnerving when I fix a computer for a Southern Baptist and he asks you if you have "embraced Jeeeeeeeesussss."  I actually responded to one of them, "Umm, yes, but not in the way that a Baptist would."  The man actually tried to get out of paying for his computer repair just because of my religious views!  I surely hope there are more open minded people out there and on this forum.
