Nature is my 'god'.  I don't know of a title, other than a pagan/treehugger/almost buddist.

  • It's good to be mildly skeptical to remain sane. But too much of it will make you a douche.

I am a Unitarian Universalist ( a very lousy one, though.). I try not to hate anyone but I am too judgmental to be a good Unitarian.

They came with a Bible and their religion. stole our land, crushed our spirit, and now they tell us we should be thankful to the Lord for being saved.

   I can truly agree on that. In reality Nature is our God

I'm an atheist and I don't have a "strong belief of the imposibility of there being a God or gods".

I think you'll find most atheists will say that there is a chance that a god exists, but that that chance is very slim (for me, one in a trillion....ish). Please try to realize that atheists come in all flavors with varied beliefs and lifestyles. "Atheist" is not a one size fits all kind of label.

There are atheists that say they are positive god does not exist but they cannot say that with any certainty.

Agnostics I've never really understood. How can someone sit on a fence their entire lives? Oh well....

"The ANUNNAKI created (at least) two distinct hybrid humans: one, the fully-functioning demi-god (as described in the Old Testament): the other, a ‘dumbed-down’, more manageable ‘drone’ version (but still, crucially, with godlike abilities latent within it’s DNA). The story goes that the descendants of both versions populate the Earth today with, inevitably, one version ruling the other…"

Atheism is non-belief in God, theism is belief in God.  I see the term agnostic useful to describe a particular type of atheist -- one who doesn't believe in God but either has strong doubts or maybe views the question as being unresolvable.

The main point is that unless you believe, you are an atheist of some sort or another.

I identify myself as an atheist because I don't believe in the Abrahamic God, and I think any other sort of deity -- such as the Hindu or Greek pantheons or some nature deity or animist spirit is not God but, if real at all (unlikely) then just a powerful being.

Still, I also identify myself fairly weakly as being a Buddhist -- by upbringing and morals and philosophy.

Now there are also other gods one might believe in, such as the Deist watchmaker-god, or the Spinoza/Einstein god of good morals and proper behavior (not too far from Confucianism, come to thing about it) or the Emersonian global spirit/whatever, or maybe the Tao (the longer I keep this up the more deities come to mind) and I expect one believing in one of these might be considered a theist, but not quite the same as belief in an Omnipotent Creator Being of the Christians, Jews and Muslims.  That is real theism.

  • You can't just choose to believe something.

    Believing in something doesn't make it true.

Atheists are quite simply....."non-believers". Most, like myself, don't believe because we've never had a reason to. I grew up in a non-religious household and had friends that were also atheists. I've never read the bible and highly doubt I could make it all of the way through it. I've never felt the presence of a god, never heard god speak, nor have I had any experiences that have ever made me wonder whether one exists. All I've ever had is people (Christians) telling me that god exists and that I should also believe......and that it would change my life. You either believe in something or you don't. You can't force it. For people like me, proof is required......until such proof is presented, then I have no reason to change my stance.

BTW, according to your definition of agnostic, that would describe me and most other atheists as well. It is impossible to know whether god exists or not.....I just wouldn't bet on it due to insufficient evidence.

Хорс = Khors, who is God of the Sun, God of the Solar Disk, who travels from horizon to horizon, above the Earth and beneath the Earth, through the day and through the night. Khors has the attributes of Ra and Osiris and Horus and Aten and Khonsu. Khors is all these gods, he is the God of the Sun and the Sky, all other gods come after Khors, even Perun. It does not matter what name is used, Khors, Horus, Tyr, etc, or from what country the names come, they are all the same God. There is no name for this religion, it simply is.

  Ok, but idk  if witch would be an appropriate term, only because many people  have placed  a negative  label on it. Rootwork  or Esoteric  might be better.

Distinguish between spin doctoring and truth. Keep in mind that truth is ALMOST impossible to figure out when it comes to ancient holy book.

I'm an indifferent agnostic. I don't know and I don't care.

Having said that, I enjoy listening to the thoughts about religion of people of faith and non-faith. After all, variety is the spice of life isn't it?

The world would be just a grey bland place if we all agreed and were the same.

Whether you believe it is appropriate or not, it's what I am.  Yes, people have put a negative label on it but I'm still a witch lol.  Witches are not evil, we do not worship Satan (Satan is not a Pagan idea lol), we do not sacrifice virgins...... if people actually studied what we worship and the paths we follow people would see there is nothing negative about being a witch.
