    Both of my parents are atheists.

    I'm an atheist. As is my wife. As are my siblings. As are the people they married.

    When you don't get indoctrinated with bs from birth, you're unlikely to adopt it as an adult, unless you are very stupid, very uneducated, or very emotionally unstable / damaged.

    Yes. I know some about other religions and mine is the best for me and I never even thought of seeking another.

    My late mother was a Catholic mystic and my father, a Knight of Columbus, also embraces Catholicism but doesn't agree with all of the beliefs therein.

    As to me, I agree with The Golden Rule found in all the world's religions and side with the conclusions of near-death experience research. That after death we are judged by a nonliving and infinite Light. The more spiritually advanced we are, the greater our ability to ascend into The Light and thereby expand our consciousness, and also embrace an ever greater level of energy and related spiritual existence.

    fascinating. How does a non-living light pass judgement?

    By limiting or expanding our level of energy and consciousness; by enabling us to be or not be surrounded by the spiritually conscientious that enhance harmony and happiness in our spirit lives, and by enabling or not enabling us to find deep inner contentment in The Light. Much like electricity or gravity in the physical sense but far more powerful than nuclear or even antimatter energy, The Light operates automatically and impartially, It is not a respecter of persons or groups and it could care less what god icon we revere or worship. All it cares about is our spirituality or lack thereof, and it limits our energy and consciousness accordingly after we cross over.

    My parents belive in God, they don't go to chruch. I'm the only one who does go to chruch in my family and thats only because my frind takes me to and from chruch so, yeah I'm not really sure what you'll say that goes into.
  • Shawna animelo... 2010/03/21 23:13:54

    I think that you and your parents both believe in God so you are basically the same. How you chose to worship might be a little different, that's all.

    My mom is a Christian, and I'm not sure what my dad believes in. I think he's an atheist. I'm more of an agnostic with Wiccan/Pagan influences.

    Not really. They were non-observant Jews. I'm an atheist, but ethnically I identify with the Jewish people.

    I follow the Word of God, but religious beliefs are of free will acceptance of each individual. Just because mom and dad or just one parent follows God, it isn't an automatic default the child will be religious. Which is disappointing, because like all things, if parents and leaders teach what to follow because of proper way of thinking, then one should love God, as we love other things God provides.

    My parents are Christians, but all other family of mine are Roman Catholic. I've thought about religion throughout my life quite a bit, and simply could never agree with the idea that all of the amazing and beautiful features of the universe just..."happened". Therefore, I'm a proud Christian :)

    Both my parents grew different religions... my dad was Mormon and my mom was Roman Catholic.

    My dad completely rejects religion of any sort now and my mom is still slightly spiritual. I'm somewhere in between the two. I don't believe in any religion but I am not 100% against any form of it. I'm slightly superstitious, though.

    RACISM! The religion of my ancestors was DESTROYED BY THE WHITE DEVIL! The PROUD BLACK MAN now only believes in himself and forging his own destiny! The PROUD BLACK MAN is therefore HIS OWN GOD---the UBER MENSCHE of NIETZSCHE!! DO YOU FEEL ME?
  • Bananban FALLout... 2010/03/20 22:40:14

    This question doesn't have anything to do with race. It's asking whether or not you follow your parents beliefs. If you believe that you are your own god and should forge your own destiny, I applaud you, that's a great thing to believe. Did your parents believe this way as well? It a simple question of how much you were influenced by your parents. Nothing involving race or racism at all.

    I was brought up Catholic, but as i grew older, I started asking a lot of questions about God and contradictions in the Bible that no one seemed to be able to answer.

    Christianity didn't make sense to me, so I couldn't honestly follow it.

    My mother is in one of the more strict fundamentalist Christian denominations. My father was raised in that denomination and always believed in a god, but lived his life like shi* right up until the end (unfortunately, he was pretty unhappy with his life).

    I am an atheist and am happy with my life.
