  • I'm an Atheist. I'm a good person in my own right and I don't feel that I need religion or god to tell me how to be a good person. I believe the bible has good morals in it but shouldn't be taken quite as literally as some do. I belive that if I give someone else the respect they deserve by not forcing my views on them, then I feel I deserve the same respect (Do Unto Others sort of thing). I will raise my kids to be free thinkers and if they want to know more about religion when they're old enough to make informed choices I'll be happy to help them with that path.

  • I'm agnostic.

    I believe that it's impossible for mankind to know the true answers pertaining to the presence (or lack of) God. We can guess all we want, but we don't really KNOW until we die.

    I still have morals and beliefs and I know the difference between right and wrong.

  • I am a Pagan and I believe in many deities. In my path I feel I have more control over my life. I feel empowerment as a woman because in my religion we hold the Goddess in high regard as well as the Gods. I attend monthly meetings in tune with the cycle of the moon. I celebrate our Eight Sabbats which begin with Yule Dec 20-21 to Samhain Oct 31-Nov 1. I enjoy who I am and I feel more empowered and enlightened day by day.
