Welcome Wonder Woman. And we've got to do something about your being undecided. Wonder Woman can't be wishy-washy. Such things are hard on your street cred.  ;)

I of course hope that we can guide you in the direction of disbelief, but I'm not you, so I've no idea where you're headed. I do hope that your being here is indicative of being an open-minded super-heroine and that you are giving atheism/agnosticism some serious thought.

Just the fact that you are undecided means you probably wont be learning to fly Boeing 747s, but not interested in practicing the landings.  That makes you OK in my book.   Oh wait, you already know how to fly.

Welcome to the forum. What are you undecided about?
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

Welcome to the forum! To believe in god or not believe in god that is the question ;)

I'm undecided, too. Will I make fried chicken for dinner tomorrow or just have some cookies? It's a hard choice. One takes me actually doing work, which I loathe, and the other...not so much.

Welcome to the forum, Wonder Woman. Like One Above, I'm curious as to just what you're undecided about. Hope you find some answers here, whatever they might be.

Always nice to welcome a new member to the forum.
Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.
Why is it so hard for believers to answer a direct question?

Thanks for the welcome boys.  I am undecided about belief.  I have never been Christian or atheist.  My parents believe in God but never go to church.  They want me to find my own way.  I found this site while doing some research on the matter.  I thought I would check it out.

^^^Perhaps you could start a thread in the Testimonial section, then? Go into more detail about your background and what you see as the still unanswered questions?

^^^And don't worry. Our use of the word "testimonial" doesn't imply or require a christian component or anything. I think it is too heavy a word in this case. Just give us an overview of where you are right now. Do keep in mind that we are as prejudiced as a believer would be, in that most of us would like you to come over to the light side. But that decision is always yours. If we can't give you good reasons to consider non-belief, then we're probably not very good at what we're doing here.

We come in many shapes, sizes and ages. Plus there's Nam, who refuses to fit into any category that does not have a foul name (You may be young enough that I shouldn't spell it out).  But all of us can type. So we'll be glad to help you think about the non-belief part. And our few theists may well chime in and urge you to look at things in a different way. Who knows, you could have fun. And gain wisdom too.

Very wise of your parents to say, especially as they are god believers themselves.
Even without starting your own threads there must be months worth of reading on here, a great place for research.
Enjoy your stay. :D

Does it bother you when Power Girl shows up and gets all the attention? :laugh:
An Omnipowerful God needed to sacrifice himself to himself (but only for a long weekend) in order to avert his own wrath against his own creations who he made in a manner knowing that they weren't going to live up to his standards.

And you should feel guilty for this. Give me money.

Everybody believes something.  I believe a lot of things.  "God" and the supernatural just don't happen to be among them.  ;)
