And as a Godian, I pray each night for God to have me treat everyone nicely.

I do believe in God....but...I must admit that the last 4 yrs have really been a roller coaster ride....emotionally as well as financially
....I was in a bad workplace situation....there was a lack of ethics...I had lost my job...and it took me a little while to find another one.....and my unemployment was denied...so there was no money.....and the way that people were treating me and talking about me....simply because I didn't have a job.....and most of them were family......so.....last summer was paticularly bad financially and emotionally....faith wise...after a series of ongoing events for a couple of years.....I had decided that God didn't hear my prayers....and had abandoned me....I was leaving the God that I knew and maybe explore other religions.....the after math of those feelings...is some guilt...and understanding a little more each day that....if I was not in that situation, I wouldn't have known what kind of people my family and others were, it was very hurtful to discover but I needed to know...and there were other things that being without a income and completely without money.... allowed me to see.....things I wouldn't have known...or felt....but was and is important....I feel it is part of a bigger plan....I didn't know it at the time but I needed to see, hear, and feel all of it.....I do believe that there is definitely a higher power.....and there are more things going on in this world than we truly realize......spiritually......

Yeah Jane, it can be so hard. When I get depressed I think about people without their limbs or those that are terminally ill. Although I still may be depressed, it puts things into perspective for me a little bit. I realize my words may not help you, but life is what it is, and I like to think that God has a reason behind everything.

Im surprised to see so many people believing in god. I understand and respect them of course if it help them. But me, I dont, for me the bible stories are unbilievables... and I guess its just a question of education and country since the young age. Personaly , the philosphy help me better, to find answers without tell me how I have to live and make me feel guilty for something I never did. I hope I ll not make myself ennemies after this post but I wanted just tell my vision about it. I think I can find a rational explanation for almost all precept of religion. And the one I have difficulties to accept, because it make women suffer so much in the world... Is the story of Adam and Eve who bite the apple of the tree of knowledge.. and of course because she didnt want stay ignorant and wanted the truth, she s responsable of all the bad things in the world and must pay it all her life by suffering. And by this story, man find normal to treat women badly and women to accept it... just because God wanted it... Oh well, Im sure women here are not like this and I hope they are strong and take only the best of it.
Another thing, about the forgivness... being abused when I was 5 by a "..." I think this notion is a joke, how can people can forgive this kind of things, its easy to say this I think and mean you can do all the horror it is allowed... No some stuff are not, and thoses monsters doesnt deserve it. Maybe the only solution is try forgot. Oh I stop here, I hope I disrespected no one, it was not my attention.
Anyway we have more in common and firstly being happy and respected, so Cheer the Girl Power !!

Religion is all faith-based. There are no facts to support the Bible, Koran, etc. I'm not a member of any organized religion, I just believe in God. I refer to God as It, rather than He.

religion is man-made.

I believe in God, but refer to God as the Ultimate It. I don't consider God to be male or female, because It created both sexes and is way above either sex.

It's hard to believe that there's nothing up there, what about all the people saying about apparitions and the entire mystical side of life? That can't ALL be a hoax!
