What if I don't know if I believe religion?

My whole damn family are christain sceintists and believe strongly in it… but it just doenst make any sence to me.. plus all my friends are practically atheists… but if I told my family this id probably never be welcome back to this house lol Anyway, any advice?

Answer #1

I kind iof felt the same when I first went into witchcraft. Though I didn’t have any friends who were, it was me against the world, boy talk about a test in your own faith lol My mother saw a book that I had & I told her I was just studying it a while later, I think bout a year or too my sister just blurted it out(boy didi I want to choke her) my mother actually took it quite well, thiugh she still holds firm to her belief & sometimes will talk about how Jesus did this or that, but hey, I don’t really mind afte all she is my mother, but it’s not like I belief ib the church anymore because ofit.

If you don’t feel comfortable telling them don’t, but their your parents & should care for you & love ya no matter what. Besides, the probably already know & just don’t want to let you know that they know, you know?

Answer #3

okay. I’m a very strong christian.. and all you christians that gave advice on this… need to calm down a bit,, forcing God uppon him is only going to push him further away…

Answer #4

lady6289 makes some good points. Personally, I’m agnostic, but you really have to explore religion and spirituality and somehow you have to find that balance of what you believe. Another post mentions being discrete and as much distaste I have for that, it might be a good idea–I can’t speak for your family and I don’t know their beliefs, but when you get older they should respect what your beliefs are. Best wishes. -S

Answer #5

To say it simply, don’t tell them you don’t follow the Christian faith, i personally don’t believe in any of it either, that’s why i’m Buddhist even though everywhere around me i’m told god and jesus are the way to go but i can’t believe any of that and thankfully myself, my mother and my sister are all Buddhist and don’t either so i’m set even though everyone else in the family are Christian you may just want to be discrete about it until you move out, i believe that’d be the best thing to do.

Answer #6

I quit believing in God when I was 12. Like you said, when I looked at it objectively it just didn’t make any sense. Many people told me that it was a phase and that I’d come around. 30 years later and I’m still an atheist so either it is permanent or a darn long phase ;)

Funny thing is that one of my friends who tried to “save” me for years when we were teens is an atheist now and we laugh about it.

Like others have said, study and think for yourself. When I was a teen I thought I and Madelyn Murry O’Hair were just about the only atheists. In college I discovered books about atheism in the library and learned that there are really a lot of us. Atheists are among the most dispised of minorities. A recent poll showed that more people would vote for a black, woman, or homosexual than would vote for an atheist for president. The thing is that unlike blacks and women we can pass for being believers if we just keep our mouth shut. There are a lot of closet atheists out there. At my last job my boss was a very devout and active Mormon. I didn’t wear my atheism on my sleve but I didn’t hide it eather so most of my coworkers knew I was an atheist. When I made my rounds saying goodbye to everyone after giving notice several of my coworkers confided in me that they too were atheists but kept it secret fearing that if it got out it would limit their career since our boss was so religious.

There are a number of good books about atheism now. “The God Delusion” by Richard Dawkins and “God is not Great” How Religion Poisens Everything” by Christopher Hitchens. I have to confess that I haven’t read either but my wife read them and really got a lot out of them.

Answer #7

Answer #10

^ reminds me of someone ^


Answer #11

i think u should read about other religions and decide which one you r more comfortable with

Answer #12

yes, all that, but what about you.? what do you believe? have you ever tried to believe in god? God robed himself in flesh and came to this earth and died for you. what a price to pay to save your soul. you should try god out. believe me , he will never let you down.. he is awesome, and your friends may be athiest, but in the end, when you die or the lord calls the rapture. you will have no choice. you will bow down, at his greatness. choose him now.. it will be the best experience of your life…

Answer #13

Ok, so im impressed with the way everyone is shoving their opinions down each other’s throats, this isnt going to answer anyone’s questions…why is islam so perfect?? what is it that, in your opinion make it so correct? And why is it that when ever someone writes something negative its almost always about Christians? Yes there are a ton of christians that do bad things to other people, but the same goes for islams, buddists, atheists, etc…I believe that i do not have to defend my beliefs, because they are the truth, and if someone truly believes that about their own faith, or whatever then why are they so defensive??

Answer #14

Hey.., Don’t worry so much on what you do or don’t believe in. You’re young, and you barely have even begun to understand who you really even are. Just explore. That’s what you’re supposed to do. You learn through experience, what feels right, and what just doesn’t. Your family will always love and support you, even if your views and opinions are entirely different from theirs. So relax, and be yourself. Everything will come to you with time. I promise. : ]


Answer #15

God is real, and he is spirit, religion is rules and regulations.. Jesus came to establish relationship… One is missing out completely if they do not find this “God Link”. It is very fullfilling indeed to find the true and living God… and to follow him.. not a religion.. that is man made… but, to follow God thru the leading of his spirit, and his word.. He draws us unto himself, but, it is up to us to follow… Once you find him… you won’ t need anything else… Don’t settle for less than the real thing…

Answer #16
  • sigh *

…not that ‘rapture’ crap again.

Answer #17

Let us first begin by admitting that we are not gods nor do we possess all knowledge. It is also necessary to remove from our minds and hearts any prejudices and prior notions of how everything came into being and how it is being sustained and perpetuated. This is the critical first step to gaining any true knowledge and establishing facts based on proof. Ask anyone the question: “Do you believe in God?” and you are sure to receive a variety of answers. The question should be “What do you believe about God?”

Think about this: • If there is a creation, there must be a Creator. • If there is a Creator, He must be the Sustainer • The Creator Cannot Create Himself • If He is the sole Creator/Sustainer – He must be ONE

God must be one.Otherwise we would see great differences and competition between the gods if there were one – Alone. Do we agree that this is a creation? Or do we accept that nothing came out of nothing to form this entire universe? This is a very clear message from Allah, in the Quran. Something does not come out of nothing. So, there must be something in existence already which created all that we know to exist. And that “something” needs to be called upon in times of need and thanksgiving. As Allah has said in His Book: “I only created you all to worship Me Alone.” He also says that we are all being tested by Him with regard to our wealth, families, children and social status.

Scientists’ Comments on Scientific Miracles in the Quran:

The following are some comments of scientists1 on the scientific miracles in the Holy Quran. All of these comments have been taken from the videotape entitled This is the Truth.

  1. Dr. T. V. N. Persaud is Professor of Anatomy, Professor of Pediatrics and Child Health, and Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. There, he was the Chairman of the Department of Anatomy for 16 years. He is well-known in his field. He is the author or editor of 22 textbooks and has published over 181 scientific papers. In 1991, he received the most distinguished award presented in the field of anatomy in Canada, the J.C.B. Grant Award from the Canadian Association of Anatomists. When he was asked about the scientific miracles in the Quran which he has researched, he stated the following: “The way it was explained to me is that Muhammad was a very ordinary man. He could not read, didn’t know [how] to write. In fact, he was an illiterate. And we’re talking about twelve [actually about fourteen] hundred years ago. You have someone illiterate making profound pronouncements and statements and that are amazingly accurate about scientific nature. And I personally can’t see how this could be a mere chance. There are too many accuracies and, like Dr. Moore, I have no difficulty in my mind that this is a divine inspiration or revelation which led him to these statements.”

Professor Persaud has included some Quranic verses and sayings of the Prophet Muhammad in some of his books. He has also presented these verses and sayings of the Prophet Muhammad at several conferences.

  1. Dr. Joe Leigh Simpson is the Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Professor of Molecular and Human Genetics at the Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas, USA. Formerly, he was Professor of Ob-Gyn and the Chairman of the Department of Ob-Gyn at the University of Tennessee, Memphis, Tennessee, USA. He was also the President of the American Fertility Society. He has received many awards, including the Association of Professors of Obstetrics and Gynecology Public Recognition Award in 1992. Professor Simpson studied the following two sayings of the Prophet Muhammad :

{In every one of you, all components of your creation are collected together in your mother’s womb by forty days…}

{If forty-two nights have passed over the embryo, God sends an angel to it, who shapes it and creates its hearing, vision, skin, flesh, and bones…}

He studied these two sayings of the Prophet Muhammad extensively, noting that the first forty days constitute a clearly distinguishable stage of embryo-genesis. He was particularly impressed by the absolute precision and accuracy of those sayings of the Prophet Muhammad . Then, during one conference, he gave the following opinion:

“So that the two hadeeths (the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad ) that have been noted provide us with a specific time table for the main embryological development before forty days.Again, the point has been made, I think, repeatedly by other speakers this morning: these hadeeths could not have been obtained on the basis of the scientific knowledge that was available [at] the time of their writing . . . . It follows, I think, that not only there is no conflict between genetics and religion but, in fact, religion can guide science by adding revelation to some of the traditional scientific approaches, that there exist statements in the Quran shown centuries later to be valid, which support knowledge in the Quran having been derived from God.”

  1. Dr. E. Marshall Johnson is Professor Emeritus of Anatomy and Developmental Biology at Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. There, for 22 years he was Professor of Anatomy, the Chairman of the Department of Anatomy, and the Director of the Daniel Baugh Institute. He was also the President of the Teratology Society. He has authored more than 200 publications. In 1981, during the Seventh Medical Conference in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, Professor Johnson said in the presentation of his research paper:

“Summary: The Quran describes not only the development of external form, but emphasizes also the internal stages, the stages inside the embryo, of its creation and development, emphasizing major events recognized by contemporary science.”

Also he said: “As a scientist, I can only deal with things which I can specifically see. I can understand embryology and developmental biology. I can understand the words that are translated to me from the Quran. As I gave the example before, if I were to transpose myself into that era, knowing what I knew today and describing things, I could not describe the things which were described. I see no evidence for the fact to refute the concept that this individual, Muhammad, had to be developing this information from some place. So I see nothing here in conflict with the concept that divine intervention was involved in what he was able to write.”

  1. Dr. William W. Hay is a well-known marine scientist. He is Professor of Geological Sciences at the University of Colorado, Boulder, Colorado, USA. He was formerly the Dean of the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science at the University of Miami, Miami, Florida, USA. After a discussion with Professor Hay about the Quran’s mention of recently discovered facts on seas, he said:

“I find it very interesting that this sort of information is in the ancient scriptures of the Holy Quran, and I have no way of knowing where they would come from, but I think it is extremely interesting that they are there and that this work is going on to discover it, the meaning of some of the passages.” And when he was asked about the source of the Quran, he replied: “Well, I would think it must be the divine being.”

  1. Dr. Gerald C. Goeringer is Course Director and Associate Professor of Medical Embryology at the Department of Cell Biology, School of Medicine, Georgetown University, Washington, DC, USA. During the Eighth Saudi Medical Conference in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Professor Goeringer stated the following in the presentation of his research paper:

“In a relatively few aayahs (Quranic verses) is contained a rather comprehensive description of human development from the time of commingling of the gametes through organogenesis. No such distinct and complete record of human development, such as classification, terminology, and description, existed previously. In most, if not all, instances, this description antedates by many centuries the recording of the various stages of human embryonic and fetal development recorded in the traditional scientific literature.”

  1. Dr. Yoshihide Kozai is Professor Emeritus at Tokyo University, Hongo, Tokyo, Japan, and was the Director of the National Astronomical Observatory, Mitaka, Tokyo, Japan. He said:

“I am very much impressed by finding true astronomical facts in [the] Quran, and for us the modern astronomers have been studying very small pieces of the universe. We’ve concentrated our efforts for understanding of [a] very small part. Because by using telescopes, we can see only very few parts [of] the sky without thinking [about the] whole universe. So, by reading [the] Quran and by answering to the questions, I think I can find my future way for investigation of the universe.”

  1. Professor Tejatat Tejasen is the Chairman of the Department of Anatomy at Chiang Mai University, Chiang Mai, Thailand. Previously, he was the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine at the same university. During the Eighth Saudi Medical Conference in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Professor Tejasen stood up and said:

“During the last three years, I became interested in the Quran . . . . From my study and what I have learned from this conference, I believe that everything that has been recorded in the Quran fourteen hundred years ago must be the truth, that can be proved by the scientific means. Since the Prophet Muhammad could neither read nor write, Muhammad must be a messenger who relayed this truth, which was revealed to him as an enlightenment by the one who is eligible [as the] creator. This creator must be God. Therefore, I think this is the time to say La ilaha illa Allah, there is no god to worship except Allah (God), Muhammadur rasoolu Allah, Muhammad is Messenger (Prophet) of Allah (God). Lastly, I must congratulate for the excellent and highly successful arrangement for this conference . . . . I have gained not only from the scientific point of view and religious point of view but also the great chance of meeting many well-known scientists and making many new friends among the participants. The most precious thing of all that I have gained by coming to this place is La ilaha illa Allah, Muhammadur rasoolu Allah, and to have become a Muslim.”

After all these examples we have seen about the scientific miracles in the Holy Quran and all these scientists’ comments on this, let us ask ourselves these questions: Could it be a coincidence that all this recently discovered scientific information from different fields was mentioned in the Quran, which was revealed fourteen centuries ago? Could this Quran have been authored by Muhammad or by any other human being? The only possible answer is that this Quran must be the literal word of God, revealed by Him.
