    I'm agnostic......Religion just seems to fake for me...Think about it.....My opinion is that religion was something used to get people to be good back in the day. The punishment for breaking the rules(sinning) was going to hell...Now i think heaven and hell just represent your conscience. If you know you did something wrong and you think your going to hell then you will probably "repent" and not break anymore rules...the reward for being good is heaven...thinking you are a great person will make you want to stay that way, so heaven is just kinda to bribe you into being good....
    Just my 2 cents

    Not all religions have a "heaven" or a "hell."

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"

    I'm not sure about what I am.

    I believe in God but I do not believe in religion.
    What am I?

    I assume agnostic means a spiritualist. You believe in a god, but not neccesarily one defined by a religion.

    If so, I am agnostic. I believe in life after death, but not nessesarily heaven or hell.

    It has nothing to do with spiritualism...

    And I'm an atheist, btw.

    If an agnostic is what dwightfry described, then count me in.

    This site has a brief overview of agnosticism, if anyone was interested further.

    I'm christian. thats my name

    and im also a christian. However, i disagree with many churchs, and have had my
    share of bad churches. Thus i don't go anymore. However I believe what i read
    in the bible, without a doubt. I can't say im the best christian, and i dont front.

    I can't say im atheist because i believe there is a God, and can't say im agnostic,
    because im certain.

    PS: My girlfriend's name is faith. Figure that one out
