I am so newly out that I haven't sorted it all out. I grew up as a Presbyterian and in my mid 20's a JW. I feel I am a Christian but right now I am so angry at what religion has done to me and others I just don't know for sure. I am confused!
What is your religious belief now?

It's where evidence has led me and continues leading me.
I'm also no longer afraid to use my critical thinking quite critically and to challenge anything that comes close to a scam or a lie or a deception, like for example, the WT.
But the evidence is the main factor for me.
on the rocks
Confused shld be another option!
Spiritual Deist ... at the moment. I am open to new possibilities.
Christian - associated with a denomination
If you accept that this is all there is and you get to experience it but for a brief lifetime, it then comes down to enjoying your life and allowing others to enjoy theirs. So long as the beliefs of others don't negatively affect your life, and vice versa, does it really matter what you or anyone believes? My belief system is based on evidence but evidence changes with understanding. Ergo what I believe is at best incomplete, and so is what everyone else believes. I have no problem with anyone being a fundamentalist Christian or Muslim or Mormon or whatever so long as they leave me alone. If they're prepared to respect my atheism reciprocally, so much the better. You're happy, I'm happy. Let's have a beer and a few laughs together. You want to fly passenger jets into buildings or allow your children to bleed to death, we are not going to get along.
I'm a 6 on the Dawkins' scale, where he puts himself.
