I would like to respond to your comment about "an agnostic is someone without balls.": I consider myself to be an Atheist/agnostic if there is such a ting. It seems as if I continue to straddle or sit pon de fence eh, However, I believe dat there is an inherent form of energy (universal in nature) that propels us forward as humans,through this turbulent life path as we know it. When we die, this universal energy force dissapates back to it's original source in the ethereal demension. Not that we will be reborn in our original form. This is what I think, is the equivalent to the oneness in all of us humans that we refer to as God. 'Nuff respect!
I hail from Kingston man, da beautiful Trenchtown. lol
We don't really do family reunions cos ma parents are dead but ma big bruv David (Pontius Pilate on this) is also an atheist. We share a crib here in London which is real cool. Ma sister still lives in Jamaica and she's as fundie as they get right so when we are back in Jamaica we don't talk no religion at da dinner table innit. You know how it is man.
What brought you to Maple Leaf country man? Are you an atheist asylum seeker like me? lol
RealType, please consider joining my new group HERCULANEUM: A PLACE FOR MEN. Herculaneum is a group where men can discuss and explore the ideas, goals, demands, ethics, sexuality, and nature of manhood and masculinity. It is a place where we are free to be ourselves, and discuss the issues most important to our identities as men.
I have already started two discussions to get us going: How do we define manhood in the 21st century? and Rites of Passage: A Lost Ritual?.
This is a private group, and discussions can be viewed by members only. Membership is open to men only.
Wazgawan ma bro. Finally I see another Jamaican atheist, apart from ma big brother. Dawg that is dope as hell for me.
Where you from man? I was born in Kingston but I been in London since I was 11.
Same here, I can believe there is something/one out there and I can even believe that is NOT the case, simply a "god" people want to put on a pedestal and have faith in b/c faith and hope help a lot of people keep going, so I guess that's nice
But I question everything else, idk the more I think about it all the more I dont believe shit I was taught as a child...
