Their interview with the one and only Ray Comfort:



Wanna share this to everyone because I thought it was a pretty awesome video.

Consider this anti theist! ^_^

I think that is pretty much what i said but anyways i also agree with your definitions. I am both.

Not quite.

An anti-theist doesn't have to be an atheist they just often are. A deist [classically] is antitheist yet they believe in 'god'.
*these are not the droids your looking for*

I know, i may have misspoke a little there. i will do that from time to time.

I figured it was going to say DAFAQ. But no it said with my opposite answers that I am a Regular monotheist so I think I will read up on the pantheist stuff just to see what it says.

So what would be the term for my thinking?

I'm agnostic about God, I do not believe "God" is a person or has human traits,
and I fight to stop early childhood indoctrination.

"Religion is for adults."
Kids should not be subjected to it. Period.
do you believe that god has intentions and interacts with your life? Maybe he is judging you and there will be consequences if your bad?

I can't believe I just listened to the whole thing. I usually skip through stuff.

You know she makes more than just a good point/points she pretty much nails it.

Agnostic deism is an oxymoron.

What did you just call me????!!!! LOL!

I agree with both of the definitions you just put up there.

When I'm in Agnostic mode I think maybe it all is just a random accident, and there's nothing out there. But I find it hard to fathom (which, I think, is how it ought to be)...

When I'm in Deist mode I look at the world, all it's inhabitants and rhythms and cycles, and I think - this is so perfect! How did it get here?

I got Dualist Pantheist??

sigh. I don't know what the hell I am. An oxymoron.
I guess.

Aside from Agnostic Deist, I could self-describe as a Pantheist Humanist, I guess.

Bottom line: I don't know. But I do revere nature and respect her. I went to the WPM page and see this for Pantheism:

We use the name pantheism because it has a long and venerable history.

Our beliefs (see the Statement of Principles) are entirely naturalistic, and compatible with atheism, humanism, agnosticism, universalism, and those forms of paganism that see magic and the gods as symbols rather than objective realities.

We offer a home to all forms of naturalistic spirituality - scientific pantheism, religious humanism, religious naturalism, positive atheism, deep ecology, philosophical Taoism, modern Stoicism, Gaia religion, Western forms of Buddhism that celebrate Nature and daily life without supernatural beliefs, and to those in Unitarian Universalism who do not believe in supernatural beings.

You are completely free to adopt the terms and practices you prefer and draw on other traditions for inspiration. Most of us avoid "god-language" and the remainder use it metaphorically. Some call this a religion (a positive one), while others call it a philosophy, a way of life, or a form of general spirituality.


Erm, rather vague. I've also explored Gaia/Wicca, Buddhism, Taoism, and one of the members described me as a Unitarian Universalist.

I'm caught somewhere between we are stardust only, and it all just "ends", and we continue as a conscious non-physical entity in some dimension or other. Thing is, I do believe in some "paranormal" and "supernatural" stuff - unseen by my eyes, but experienced via 'touch' and rarely, 'hearing.' I also think dreams are when our concsiousness leaves the body to rest and carries on with business in the "dream realm". Serial dreams...left on waking and often returned to when I fall back asleep.

Consider this anti theist! ^_^

Ah yes...Greta Christina.

I went to a conference last spring and she was one of the presenters; I only heard her while she was in the audience taunting and heckling another speaker, and she is ONE ANGRY WOMAN.

REALLY angry. Unpleasant.
While I understand her emotions about it (I, too, fight against early childhood 'Abrahamic' indoctrination) - she was just so prickly, even just listening to her and watching her from 20 rows back and far to the right - I knew I couldn't stand to sit through her lecture. It was the same lecture where I saw Seth Andrews speak, and Jerry DeWitt...

No, and no. Whatever "God" might be, it's not a 'person' or 'sentient master' overseeing everyone's every move and thought. LOL!! No. No way. Also don't believe in the virgin birth, resurrection, or "Jesus is the Way". Although I think he was trying to get the Eastern thoughts pinned down for his listeners. I do believe if he existed, he spent time in India and other countries studying with Monks/Buddhists. There are just too many parallels, though.

I'm more, lately, thinking he is just a myth, right beside King Arthur.

Took the test a second time:
Now I'm a Literal Pagan/New Age/Animist.
