    I don't get the terminology very well.
    could anybody figure out who am i?

    here are my views

    1. i do not believe in any religion and any god
    2. i think that the existence of the whole universe may not be planned and it may be the result of an accident or whatever you call it but before this happened ''the existence of the universe'' there must be something and in future if the universe just vanishes, there must be something.. my point is there is a reason behind all of this and that reason may be something like god.
    Note: when i say god i do not mean any kind of religious god, so do not take it in that way. i just name the reason of everything

    Please tell who am i? a theist, atheist or agnostic..
    also feel free to ask any questions

    Thanks

      A persons identity should be unique to himself from himself by himself of himself.
      If this is not so then he runs the risk of being a pperpetual slave unto another..

      This is the way of all false religion and intellectualism in this world...they offer men a false identity so as to enslave them into their pattern of thinking. 

      wake up look around it all around you.

      the one who is aware of his true identity, is free and though is in this world , also know that he already beyond this world and will not be enslaved by nothing in this world.

      You're .... empty.
      Question---are you looking for a label to place upon yourself, or are you looking for the knowledge of the Truth that will fill that void?

        i don't know the truth. If you mean ''the truth'' is god, jesus, allah or whatever the religion then I am not into this. I am completely fed up of this religion thing. please give me a break and give me what you call ''the knowledge of truth''

          Your error is the error of most men, they entrench themselves into a belief without the knowledge of truth.

          The establish a thing to be true within themselves yet they still boast about not having the knowledge of Truth....

          So you can see that You are your own worst enemy....
          Only you can hide yourself from the knowledge of Truth...

          The best place to start is to sit with yourself and ask questions of yourself...If you get an answer without any doubt, then you have found Truth.. If there is any doubt...then you also know you have not found Truth.

          Another thing that you can do is when dealing with your neighbor, do you treat them the same way you would like to be treated?

          Again Only Truth can teach you itself and not another man...


          Because You are the knowledge of Truth..

              My friend if that was truly true you would not  have conclusion without knowledge of truth..

              It obvious that the thing which you believe to be truth is actually false..
              And like I said you hide Truth from yourself..

              So truly you have not done this....

          What you believe is completely up to you? Just learn to recognize why you believe what you do believe and don't confuse belief with truth, because most often a belief isn't truth but is a leap of faith. wink

      If you're looking to see where you'd fall in the spectrum of belief or non belief, which is how I read the question, then the answer is that you are agnostic.  You hold that you do not know and cannot know the ultimate cause or reason for the universe.  At least that's what I would say based on your list of introduction.

      Based on the picture, I'd say you're Johnny Depp.  Is he agnostic?

      Thanks for asking. :-)

      All that can be safely deduced is that you are a Non-Slave Non-Sheep.  You entertain thoughts that there might be some kind of Prime Mover that you call "God" for lack of a better word, but you have not been channeled and brainwashed since birth, in some "flock" by some religious "pastor" (from an ancient word for a shepherd).  Therefore, you do not have a raft of tertiary beliefs about how this God thinks and how you must therefore act.  Bravo.  Mental freedom tastes good, doesn't it?

        Hey Janni321, you are just a human being no more no less and you are not empty, your question is a rightful question for a young Man, in reality everyone is always asking the same thing and if you listen to anyone of them they will always stear you wrong, Especially the religious ones, pay this question not to much attention for no one has an answer just live your life and enjoy yourself, because the answer to most of your questions of our existance lies in only one answer and that is LOVE.
        Love yourself and find someone to Love you in return but most importantly try to give love to those around you and you will get love in return. be honest with yourself and follow your heart. the more complex the questions are the simpler the answer is. confusion is not new some of the people that seem like they have the answers at times are more confused than you. And most of the time what ever things appear to you try to look at it the opposite way. Example. when you were young if you recall there was always a bully running around, why do you think he was a bully? the answer is he has more fear than others so he uses that tactic,
        it is a fact that must bullys or so called tuff guys get killed by someone that has more fear than them, that is why they strike first. because of fear.
        so enjoy your experience on this thing called life for it is a short ride. Take care and live free without restrictions of any kind. no religion, no politics just fun and love because everything else is really man made and used to control the masses. Perhaps you should See The Book Of Eli Movie and you might get a glimps of what most use religion for. And Politics another man made piece of work. All False and used against us all.

    You are just a normal guy like most of the population of this planet - the question you ask only exists because a minority of people believe in the existence of some kind of overseer god - which creates the question for your (normal) 'don't know' position.

    I would suggest not even thinking about it as the unknown is just that - unknown.

    Jannie you have started an interesting discussion.
    I think you are a type of agnostic-as are most of my friends.
    Why do you want to know? Do you feel names and lables help clarify your thinking? Were you raised in an agnostic family or a religious family? Do you care/

    1. janni321 profile image60
      janni321posted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Yes i think that it will clarify my thinking.
      I am actually raised in a very religious Pakistani muslim fundamentalist family but here I am, an agnostic and I do not care about who i am. It is really exciting for me smile

    I think you need to give yourself time to grow and soon enough who will decide for yourself.

    I went through something similar when I was Catholic and I slowly began to realise that God was a fairytale,  but remember that you are not a label but a diverse human being.

      you are right. After posting this thread and going through some very thoughtful replies, things are going to be more clear in my life now. but you are right that it will take time. There is very cool community here on hubpages and it always give me new thoughts.
