My beliefs

I am non-relegious but don't see myself as an atheist. I know that some people will say what is the difference. That is a good question and to tell the truth I can't really say for sure. In my earlier post I stated that using the right defintion, you can say atheism is a religion. I might call myself non-religios simply because I don't want the hate shown to me that most atheist receive. 
Why don't I believe in some god? There are a few reasons and they are based on both evidence and feelings. I can't say any one reason is more important then any other. I think the one that I use the most is how much hate you see coming from most religions. Allt the moderates of different religions will say their religion is peaceful but then will turn around and bash those that are different then them. The moderates will backhandly support the more exetreme elements of the religion. The way they do this is by not confronting them on the areas of where the exetremist go overbroad. They also help finically but probably don't even know they are.

  1. Hi! This issue must be extremely personal and sorry for giving my opinion, but thought it could help you in some way.

    If you don't believe in God, you're an atheist. Simple. Atheism is not a religion. Those who say that do so only in attempt to make atheists seem as wrong as other believers.

    But the reason I decided to comment was to explain that you can't modulate your beliefs only because others will hate you. There must be a few who might hate you even if you call yourself irreligious instead of atheist. Will you start believing in God, then?

    People have no right to hate you as long as you don't do them any harm, and are able to justify your stance of not believing. If they hate you, it's their prejudice, and not your fault.

    Hope I could help you. TC.
