I will try to be respectful as I know the internet is primarily atheist. You all seem to hate the idea of conforming to beliefs you can't prove, which I guess it perfectly okay. Here's the thing though it seems like you see your parents faith and want to rebel. It's a teenage mentality. I would know I'm still technically a kid. Though not really.
Why do you feel the need to not believe?Why do you feel the need to not believe? Do you think it makes you more on level with intellectuals and liberals to denounce religion?
It seems your kind is the type who love free speech until it disagrees with your views. You have the right to not believe but I'd really like you to answer these questions.
Funny, you reply by accusing my generation of making assumptions about yours, and follow that up immediately by making an assumption about my generation.
Seems like in your 63 years, you've put a lot of thought into your religion.
Love how you elaborate. I learned a lot from your post. Yes, your generation can teach mine a lot about morality. How about you start with your generation fighting wars endlessly, and the morally upright from your generation which is running Wall St.

My parents generation, the baby boomers, are a very religious generation, and many of their children,myself included, were likely brought up in a religious house hold. I have since ended all ties to modern religion, although I do consider myself extremely spiritual.
It seems our generation, or for arguments sake, those between 18-40, are far less religious than the generation which came before us, and even more so in Europe, than here in the US. I'm curious as to how many of you under the age of 40 subscribe to a religion. What do you think the future holds for religion in this country? Do you ever actually see our country following the constitution, and separating church and state?
If I knew how to add a poll, I would.
