    I Return

    Hello Interfaith Forums! I used to post here in the 2005 to 2009 time frame. I first joined the forums when I was in high school. I have fond memories of this place. It takes me back to my formative years. I'm a bit astonished it still exists, mostly in the form I remember, with all my old...

    Isn't beleif in God overrated?

    what I mean by this is that beleif in God is just one issue in religion. When people ask me what religion I am, I reply "I'm agnostic" this describes my veiws on the existense of God, but it doesn't describe my religion as a whole.
