So, just to preface: I was brought up in a very Christian household, church every Sunday, Wednesday, and sometimes other days. Baptized, Sunday School, Youth Group, etc. As I got to about age 9, I began questioning the teachings. After taking some Religion electives in college, pretty much all Religious classes I could take as a non-major, I basically made up my own religion. Abiding to the "Golden Rule," being completely objective to any religion, trying to learn as much as possible as I could about every one. I would have considered myself Agnostic up to a week ago, and might still. So, basically, I'm searching for answers. I want to believe in something, however, as a very well educated person in the realm of Science, it's just so tough to believe at this point. I have nothing against Christian beliefs as a whole, but I find so many flaws, especially with the article on CNN today: http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2010/09/21/where-did-waters-part-for-moses-not-where-you-think/?hpt=Sbin I also have a personal disbelief in many ideas of Christianity, such as gay marriage, casting away divorcees (my mom got cast away from a Lutheran church after her divorce from my father, and went to another church), etc. That lead me to purchase multiple books on Hinduism and after reading through most of them, I seem to agree with most ideas. I turn myself off at the death of me, I don't want to come back as some better form of life. I'd much rather just be dust in the ground, knowing my karma and personal decisions lead me to lead a great life, that hopefully made others happier, and not have to worry about God or Jesus's salvation. When I'm done, I'd like to be done. Basically, I like the fact that you are living in the "now," and doing the right thing, as opposed to trying to worry about what was considered living good in ancient times. I guess the purpose of this post is to get ideas from people that may have been or are still in the same position as I. I'd also like to hear differing viewpoints without name calling, politics, ideas not based on facts, etc. Sound off?
