a friend and i were talking about the whole god thing. saying i am an atheist just doesn't feel right. so i did some research and i think this describes my beliefs:
"Ignosticism is the view that the question of whether or not deities exist is inherently meaningless. It is a popular view among many logical positivists such as Rudolph Carnap and A. J. Ayer, who hold that talk of gods is literally nonsense. According to ignostics, "Does a god exist?" has the same logical status as "What color is Saturday?"; they are both nonsensical, and thus have no meaningful answers."
hey, i'm ignostic!
i am respect of others religous and spiritual beliefs. i just don't like "bossy religon". like people knocking on my door to save my soul. or god references on money or the pledge of allegience. even as a kid i wouldn't say the "under god" part! when i had surgery at st. vincent's, a priest came over and offered to pray with me. i said, "no thanks!" and giggled, and the poor guy looked so confused!
ok, now for a new survey: what are your religous/ spiritual beliefs or non-beliefs? you can post anonymus if you feel it's too private. i know for me, it's been a little scary at times telling people i am an atheist/agnostic (now an ignostic!) people are pretty judgemental about that kind of thing in the country. the media always portrays atheists as goofy or somehow dangerous.... well, i am out of the god closet!
