David M replied to allie grace's discussion 'Do you think atheism is a religion in itself?'
"Good point on that. I think there may be some confusion of 'religion' with 'fanatic'. Many atheists can be just as fanatical and unreasoning as their theists counterparts. But that commonality of action does not equate to a…"

David M replied to Mike Baker's discussion 'Are We Being Arrogant?'
"If we don't ask, then we run the risk of being just as bad as, or even worse then, those we oppose. Never fear a question, and never trust those that claim it is wrong to ask questions. They aren't always bad folks, but they provide a…"

David M replied to Mike Baker's discussion 'Are We Being Arrogant?'
"      Which ruling of what actually exists should we use? It is still considered proven that God is real and that the Devil is the cause of all ills, in the eyes of many people. The debates and frustrations on this site are…"

"       I like some of your points, but I think they are addressing something other then what was meant. What I hear Mike as saying, and please correct me if I'm wrong, Mike, is... Science is a frame work that we can use…"

David M replied to Arcus's discussion 'Possible argument [for] not against theism?'
"Ok, found why my first post didn't link to the comment I wanted to reply to, and got the mark this time. Lots of nested scripts here and using no-scripts breaks the scripts needed for replying to a comment rather then the topic. > Just…"

David M replied to Arcus's discussion 'Possible argument [for] not against theism?'
"Ok, my first time here, love the thoughts and was inspired to join. I felt a need to point out an assumption that doesn't stand up. Flower is a simple concept, and yet a flower it self is a complex thing. So to claim that 'God' is a…"

About Me:
I have long had an interest in religion, and have been appalled at the willful ignorance that is so rampant in most faiths. If God is too big to be understood by man, then it is also too big to fit into any one faith. Deciding this brought me to the idea of making my own faith, which I promptly did. It is a faith that takes a different turn then most. The one tenet that must be embraced and never questioned is a simple one 'I am wrong'. I think if more faiths brought that one founding idea into them selves, religion wouldn't be such a dirty word.

Why are you here?
Found a link from Fark to a story here, and stopped to look around. Made the mistake of hitting the forums and got hooked.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
Three reasons. First, I listened to what they had to say with an open mind... That one's enough to turn most away right there. Second, I watched the actions of the people. If the first didn't turn you away, that one would. And third, I played Devil's Advocate and thought about how I would screw things up, and noticed that the path the Judaic religions and all the off shoots followed, and they matched frighteningly well.

Actually, I didn't feel attacked at all, and I found your thoughts to be very interesting. In addition, I fully condone having my opinions and arguments attacked and ripped apart, how else could I possibly defend them well or discard them when they are wrong? I worship at the altar of science, and this site is one of my "peer-reviews".

I hope you will not moderate the expression of your opinion, I certainly don't, and above all else, thank you for your valuable insights and welcome! :)
