So what do you call someone can can't make up their mind if they're an atheist, a theist, or an agnostic ? Perhaps a "confusionist".

I made no such claim. I never said that all atheists, or even the vast majority are religious...You have read way too far into things and the fact that you get so offended makes me believe you are a religious atheist, and not just a normal atheist...

If you want to prove your point, quote me. Let's see if I said everthing anyone ever does or has or will ever do is religious...

I'm not offended at all. Why would I be offended at something someone said online? I'm not 12.
I would think it was quite obvious that I was joking about the level of things you consider religious. Posted Image

I cannot tell when you are being sarcastic or serious. (Unlike some people on here I can not read into periods and commas.) I mean someone on here actually made the points you made...and they were serious...well as far as I could tell considering they would not respond to my PMs or respond to me on here. I think it is more funny than anything because a certain someone reads into things I did not say and does not support his evidence. Then they claim they do not have to answer me because I am a jerk. Man, I just wish college was that way. Instead of writing a 12 page paper I could just say "they are a jerk so they do not deserve a response." Trust me, I am not upset by these claims. I just love it how everyone is an internet know-it-all.

I am a man who struggles with being human and all the frailties that goes with it.  I believe in the God of the Bible.  I don't find it to be a burden or a loss of freedom to worship a higher power.  When I look into the night sky or listen to music or see the twinkle in a friendly eye I am reminded that He exists.  I look forward to meeting Him someday.  If it turns out that I'm deluded then what will it matter?  In the meantime I will have tried my best to live without harming my brothers and sisters who share this place and time with me.  If Atheists and anti theists and agnostics can say the same, then I have no problem with their choice.  Above all else He gave us free will.

Oh, I get what you're saying. I don't agree with some of your religious/atheist views, sure, but I always back up my claims or whatever that needs evidence with evidence.
I do not believe in any gods and I do not feel that I am religious in anyway because they only time it ever comes up is when I'm on here arguing with other people one here!

I wish college was like that, too. Grad school would be so much easier if I could just write a paper that says "I'm right because I say so."
One day.

By the way, I was not joking about The Lion King. I'm watching it right now. (My girlfriend gets pissed when I get drunk (like now...maybe....) cause I always watch it, but she's sleeping and doesn'y know. Shhhhhhh....) Great movie. It's no Dances with Wolves (that's a joke) but it's still a great movie.

You and I are exact opposites. When I look into the night sky or listen to music or see the twinkle in a beautiful girls eye, I am awed by the simplicity and biological wonder of the world we inhabit. It always makes me think that such chaotic beauty could never have been created by anything, except, maybe, by The Lion King.
