How many change their religion to something different than they were raised to believe?
I am sure it happens but it is probably a very low %

Astrophysicist Carl Sagan said, “An atheist has to know a lot more than I know. An atheist is someone who knows there is no god. By some definitions atheism is very stupid.”

Neil deGrasse Tyson, Big Think interview, "Consider also that in America 40% of American scientists are religious, so this notion that if you're a scientist that you're an atheist, or if you're religious that you're not a scientist, that's just empirically false. It's an empirically false statement."

Gregor Mendel (1822-1884), considered the father of genetics, was an Augustianinan friar and abbot of St. Thomas' Abbey in the Austrian Empire. Mendel discovered the basic principles of heredity through experiments in his monastery's garden. His experiments showed that the inheritance of certain traits in pea plants follows particular patterns, subsequently becoming the foundation of modern genetics and leading to the study of heredity.

Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976) was a German theoretical physicist and one of the key pioneers of quantum mechanics. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1932. He was a Lutheran and a member of Germany's largest Protestant religious body, the Evangelische Kirche. He said, “The first gulp from the glass of natural sciences will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass God is waiting for you.”

The Big Bang Theory was first proposed by a Catholic. In 1927, the Belgian Catholic priest Georges Lemaître proposed an expanding model for the universe to explain the observed redshifts of spiral nebulae, and calculated the Hubble law. He based his theory on the work of Einstein and De Sitter, and independently derived Friedmann's equations for an expanding universe.

So 60% of scientists have no religion......

The Catholic Church originally denounced the big bang theory and said it was heresy.

My main problem is all that is required to get into heaven is belief.
Even if I made it there I wouldn't like it as soon as I saw Hitler and pedophile protecting popes.

Umm, you can't just say I believe in the Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit and shoot somebody. You have to heed the words of the bible and try your very best to follow them. You also have to understand that heaven is likely just being in the presence of god, which is so magnificent you wouldn't have any human feelings anymore.

but Judaism and Islam both reject the holy trinity as something that was made up long after the first Christians walked this earth....
reply
0 ups, 11m
Yes, even as sad as it may seem, those who are faithful to only God will not go to heaven. This is what I choose to believe. If you think otherwise, then I'm not arguing with you. The fact that Christians believe that you must believe in the Trinity is irrelevant. I'm just saying you need to follow the commandments to the best of your ability and not completely disregard God's rules.

I am not interested in a possible afterlife.
How bout just doing the best you can now instead of worrying about attaining the approval of a Supreme being?
All you got to do is believe. Not a very high hurdle

This doesn't make any sense. When I as raised i went to church every Sunday. I then went through conformation and choose to be a member of my church. I don't just go to church because I feel obligated, but because I want to.

The only reason the bible doesn't make sense is because it was originally written in a different language. Some of it's teachings don't even apply to Christian's directly, but to everyone. I honestly doubt you've ever read a passage from the bible.

I take it you're an asshole who's only real goal in life is to prove God isn't real. Having faith is believing in something even when you can't see it. I see now that it is a concept you can't grasp. Like I said, that "dusty old book" applies to lot's of different scenarios in our everyday lives and you obviously haven't read it. You must care a whole lot about this subject if you're using profanity, so how about next time you become so immersed in a subject you try to learn a thing or two about it. Also watch for grammatical errors, it makes you look like the dumb ass you are.

You are displaying your true self. No worries God will forgive you and give you eternal life. What a crock. Good luck

I don't really see what you're getting at. God will forgive you, that is exactly what he does. When Jesus came down to earth and was crucified and saved us from our sins. Now committing one sin will not have us go to hell. Maybe you would know that if you actually read the bible. Thank you for wishing me luck, even if it was sarcastic.

I am agnostic.
The problem I have with the true believers, and you are one of them, is that they themselves know it isn't provable that God exists.
That and they think they are morally superior.
Agnostics don't claim God doesn't exist.

I think I'm morally superior to dirt. Now this won't apply to you, but we are all God's children and he all loves us the same. I don't know why you assume that all Christians have the same mindset. Maybe because you think we were brainwashed by alien technology or something, but that is not the case. Like I said earlier, faith is believing in something even when you can't see it. I'm not really sure why this an issue for you.

God may or may not exist. It is unprovable either way. Why is that an issue for you?

It's not. Believe whatever you want to believe. I just don't appreciate you being disrespectful toward my religion.

"We are all God's children and he loves us the same"... Yet that won't apply to me?
Do you see any fault in that logic? Any?
Religion is used on young ones to instill fear that if they don't believe they won't make it to an afterlife. That is why they need to start them young because a fully thinking adult will see it for what is it. A scare tactic.

You falsely accused all who believe in God of thinking we are superior. You called the bible a dusty old book, you also accused me of lying, and you made jokes about people "digging their claws in" and brainwashing our youth.

Yes most religious people i know think they are superior. If you aren't one of them good for you.
The Bible is an old book.
Where did I say you were lying?
Religion is brainwashing and they start them young when they are most impressionable.
0 ups, 11m
You called me a crock. Does that or does that not mean that all I am saying is complete nonsense, implying that the words I'm saying have no truth to them? Also it's not the fact that the bible is old, but that it is JUST an old dusty book, and that it has no value. And I don't agree that religion is brainwashing and I take offense to it.
