I put this poll here, because there is Jmfcst-Miamiu-God-fight going on in 2004 presidential topic.

I live in Finland. I vote Conservatives (National Coalition Party) in Finnish elections, but consider myself as moderate Democrat in the USA.

For once, we agree Smiley
80% of athiests voted Gore in 2000...not many Bushies among us atheists.

Belief in atheism increased by 25% in the last year!  Atheist majority!

The "i before e" rule can be a little confusing for people who aren't sticklers for grammar, like myself. It's essentially the "when you want to say -ee-, it's i before e except after c" but there are exceptions to the rule. Also fits in with words that sound like "ay" like neighbor and weigh.

Oh, and I definitely believe in God. One of the few devout liberal Christians you'll come across, at least on Atlas.

-ist is a noun suffix, therefore it has NOTHING to do with "i before e" rule.

yeah, rather profound, wasn't it?  I thought about explaining that if the e had been silent it could have been dropped...as in "true" + "ism" = "truism".

But, then I would ruin my native-houstonian-christian-fundamentalist-know-nothing image.

Short answer: No.

Long answer: other than hearsay there is no concrete physical proof for a God, and therefore until such evidence manifests there is no reason to conclude that such a thing exists.

However, simply because I have not seen said evidence does not mean that it isn't there; hence I am open to the possibility of the existence of God, which ultimately makes me an agnostic rather than an atheist.

What kind of "physical proof" are you expecting from a God who is an invisible spirit?
