Exactly. Apathy about Religion = ????? = Apatheist

The bit in the middle is the "Missing Link". Of course, those guys on the site wouldn't believe it.

Actually, they don't believe about apes, so imagine how confused they would be when they find out that we all started as starfish.

Now you see that's not true in my case - Apatheist still implies not believing in God. Whereas I do in some shape or form.

Fal, are you a deist?

Loosely defined as someone with notions of a god that are incomprehensible and don't really matter in every day life? Or more strictly speaking, one who believes that God was the first cause of everything, but once he created and set the universe in motion, he left to do his own business?

If there's a strong hint there's the word "apathy" in there, then apatheist implies theism: apa-theist.

Just my view. Don;t think it really matters mind.

Donnyton: Because of my Catholic upbringing I'm probably more of a Theist - and obviously biased towards the idea of the 'Catholic/Christian' God.

TheInspiration: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apatheism

By that definition, the word is a combination of apathy and atheism.

And besides, if you don't care if there's a God or not, then his existence doesn't really concern you, so you're a natural atheist, not a decided atheist.

And also, how does your Catholic upbringing affect you? My very religious upbringing seems to have pushed me in the opposite direction, so unless you've decided to set your Catholicism aside for the time being, otherwise it's sort of a rejection of it.

Actually, somewhere down the line, the idea of heaven and any kind of afterlife started to induce revulsion...

But beer and women are always good. It depends on what kind of music they play up there though.

Again, people are misinterpreting what I'm saying.

What I believe, in simple terms:

- I believe there to be a God.
- My Catholic upbringing means any thoughts (by me) of the existence of God will be biased towards the Christian/Catholic idea of God. It also means I am loathe to turn my back on the idea of God's existence.
- I do not care for religious debate, it only ever leads to arguments, with no positive outcome on either side.
- At the present time I am too lazy/do not care enough about religion to practice it with any regularity.
- I find religious fanatics/fundamentalists (of any religion) frightening, and I find militant atheists who seem to think it's their duty to mankind to disprove all religion extremely fudge irritating.
- I believe the most important message of religion is to essentially summed up in the phrase "Love one another." - that is, we should attempt to be decent human beings wherever possible. Those who use religion as an excuse to blow the crumpets out of people, or cast condemnation on others, or for whatever negative purpose, are totally missing the point in my eyes.

So yeah, there you go, feel free to pigeon-hole me with some irrelevant nametag, but don't try and tell me that I'm something I'm not.

lol if it were me writing that I would switch the two around: That militant atheists extremely frightening and religious fundamentalists/fanatics extremely irritating. Maybe it's because I better understand the intentions of fundies. Not that I'm claiming to be an expert on the subject of religion, mind you.

This is how I feel, too, and going on from that I think if I have a true faith in anything then I have a faith in my fellow humans. It is, really, the most foolish thing to believe in, because people are flawed, and we've seen more than enough proof of that. But when I see "flawed" beings doing good, wonderful things, my faith is renewed. So I know it's idiotic, but I can't help but believe in people. From my friends and family to people I've never met before.

As for gods... I would call myself an agnostic. I've got quite a nice seat on this fence.

If it had the Japanese arcade games like Ikaruga, Virtua Fighter 5, and maybe Initial D, I think it'd be worth it.
