Do we have to talk about religion on a website that's dedicated to gaming?

This is the general discussion section of the forum

I'm a Buddhist but I'm also an Atheist.

 

FYI aren't Christian and being a Catholic the same thing?

Christianity is a broad term. There's Orthodox Christianity, Catholic Christianity, and others. My parents raised me as an Orthodox Christian, but Catholic Christianity is much more common (especially with the fact that Catholics have a Pope while Orthodox Christians do not). I could get into the whole technical terms and history of it, but I won't bother. If you're interested, look up the Schism.

Same God, same people, why can't you guys just get along and just remove all those political system away. FYI by people I mean human.

I am not religious, I am spiritual, I respect others beliefs. Although I think many of their ideals are a good idea, they are often taken too far and upheld by people who think questioning them at all is dogmatic. The idea of faith i believe is important though, as in the idea of believing in something greater than yourself, it's that capacity that gives someone a broader view of the world imo.

I am an agnostic myself. I do respect if somebody draws his strength from his religion but if they turn into a preacher or use it to do something wrong I can't respect that at all.

Well im technically shinto, but I don't really believe much of anything. I really like shrines though, they are peaceful xD

I do hope that this thread does not turn into a flame war, that said, I am happy that this thread was made. I am personally of no religion.

 

Also, just to make one thing clear, if you do not believe in a god, you are, per definition, and atheist. Since the word litteraly just translates in "godless". All social norms attached to the word do not change the actual meaning of it

People are being civil thus far. That said, the thread is still young, and this is the internet after all

....yeah, I'll just say I have a bad feeling about this, as I think at some point somebody is going to forget to bring their sense of humor in to this topic and shit will hit the fan....

 

But, since you asked...

 

Atheist  :)

I'm a Christian myself and I don't discriminate against any other religions like most Christians now a day do. Being a "Protestant" is just fucking stupid. Let those that believe on someone or something "believe" and leave them be.

I'm a devout Haruhiist. ALL HAIL HARUHI!

Being completely serious now, I'm an atheist. That said, I'm not an anti-theist. People like TheAmazingAtheist annoy me just as they do most theists.

Religion threads usually take much less time to start blazing, in my experience. Regardless of whether it will or won't, that we've lasted this long says something about our community that puts me at ease.

They each have different beliefs and/or practices since the Bible can be interpreted in many different ways. What some may see as metaphors, others see as commands.

Just going to shut this down right now, let's not talk about the amazing atheist.

The amazing atheist also annoys me, but he does occasionally make valid points. Let us not sidetrack this thread about him, but mentioning him briefly is fine

If you are refering to me I would just like to say that shinto isn't really a full blown religion sorta. It's kinda hard to explain but it's more about preserving culture I guess, kinda hard to explain. Of course you might not be talking about me and I might appear like a dumbass, both are equally possible xD
