    Well, im agnostic.. i grew up catholic and in catholic schools and.. christmas gifts were bibles. I guess i just.. was so forced into believing what my family does, that i couldn't believe what i was hearing..

    When i turned 14.. i decided i wasn't going to believe in anything until i saw proof! I refuse to let myself be led by something that i have no idea exists.. and no idea that it is "correct".. And from that day.. i am waiting until i have some confimation of a "higher power" or "god" before i let myself follow or believe in it. That's just me.

    P.S. i would be completely willing to believe if i had proof too.. it's not that im writing off religion forever.
    People just seem to take me as "evil" or "rebelious" when i tell them im agnostic. But no, its just how i feel.

    I dont think you're evil or rebellious - everyone's entitled to their opinion and that happens to be yours!

    What was it about growing up Catholic that exactly pushed you away? What kind of proof are you looking for?

    I think becasue the religion was so strict.. or at least thats what i felt. They seemed to push me into believing something.. that.. wasn't really there. It was hard for me to believe it after finding out the easter bunny and santa weren't real.. i thought.. "well, how do i know your not lieing to me again"
    I guess as of now i feel as though religion is a "comfort zone" or an "answer" to everything.. when theres no hope left.. turn to god.. when things go wrong.. turn to god. i believe we should confide in ourselves.. or real people.

    proof would be.. a mircale.. seeing this power or god.. hearing it.. even.. "feeling" it.
