My beliefs are the converted thoughts of my peers, teachers, enemies and hero's

everything affects the way I think because I do not live in a box.

My parents influenced me in politics. My parents are republican and so am I. They like Bush I like Bush(Ya, you read it right!). But when I watch the news it totally makes sense as to what my parents say.

My parents brough me up in christ. But my whole family drifted. It was new information and being touched by Christ that brought me back.

It is my own

You live in a box and are completely isolated from ALL outside influence that might shape your opinions or beliefs?
I doubt that.
You may make your own decisions, but do you realize the impact that the media, current events, and other people have on those decisions?
The information you receive every day has a huge impact on your beliefs, and it isn't really anything anyone analyzes.

For example, I believe that the sky is blue. Blue is just a word, but the concept of blue I have seen over and over through my life and it happens to be a certain distinct hue. A comparison between that particular hue and the sky leads me to believe that the sky is blue. HOWEVER, blue is a word that describes a color. If I'd always been shown that bluish color but with it called "green" I'd probably say that I believe that the sky is green.

(Do you follow my analogy?)

If you want to get that technical then there is no point in this topic or this discussion because everybody in the world would answer no

My beliefs well in a sense i guess you could say on the part my parents as they asked if i wanted to go a Catholic school i agreed open minded i knew i was Catholic and for some reason did believe something going on there. Im a catholic and now since going to that school i probably know more about the religion then anyone else since going to the school for what 6 years i have been through stages of yes no yes no yes no debating it but believeing that something is there i dont know wat but i believe something is there and their wa deiffinatly a Jesus Christ his name has been on record when he was born the "story" is in way to much detail to say Jesus didnt excist i find the whole religion questionable but interesting and beliveable. some parts i dont believe such as Adam ad Eve i dont believe there has been proof of evolution so i dont belive in Adam and eve and all the crap about not haveing sex before marrage.

Political views my own i hate all these politions thinking their making our countries better their really not if anything their destroying how we live and turning all countries against each other killing thousands of innocent people with the things they suggest they should put into action for example the NHS people should pay for which at the moment here is 100% free but they are thinking of making people pay, people cant afford to pay if they could theyd go private in the long run thousands of people would suffer because they have no money to get any treatment. its a bunch of nonesence to put it liightly if we dont like it we should fight it not go with it and be a victim of something we dont like to hel with politions there ruining our world and causing hell all over the world.

I AM OPENMINDED TO OTHER PEOPLES BELIEFS AND I RESPECT THEM THIS IS JUST MINE AND IN SOME CASES THEY MAKE ME THINK AND OPEN MY MIND EVEN MORE INTO THE PROSPECTS OF LIFE FOR EXAMPLE I NEVER REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT TABOOS AND HOW WE HIDE BEHIND THEM UNTIL TWO DAYS AGO WHEN MY FRIEND WAS TALKING TO ME HE WAS SAYING ALL THIS STUFF ABOUT TABOOS AND HOW ITS STUPID AND SOMETHING WE HIDE BEHIND BECAUSE SOCIETY HAS MADE US BELIVE ALOT OF THINGS ARE WRONG AND NOT REALLY GIVEN US A CHOICE TO DO WHAT WE WANT TO DO THAT REALLY OPENED MY MIND AND I BELIEVE IN THAT NOW ALOT.... sorry about caps abuse

My personal choice. I choose not to believe anything. I am basically surrounded by Christians and Catholics, but I choose to be Atheist.

I'm a Catholic,I belive in it, but I'm not vary pious.
I'm not pushie when it comes to others-they can belive or not belive in W/E. And I don't care if they're Bi/Gay/straight...it's not my life it's thier's and it's more true to REAL Christianity to accept all peoples and treat them respect and love dispite they're diffrent life style or Faith.
I belive that if your a good person, you show generositiy and love twards others, and your not a douche bag you can go to heaven.
All that crap about how only if your a Christian or a certin type of Christian you can go to heaven but the rest of the world can't is bull.
Because then there was no point for Christ to "die for all man's sin's so we can have internal Life"(aka Heavan) if only a small fraction can go there.

Well, growing up I want to church every weekend. And I still do. And I'm planning on going to church when I'm on my own. So, I guess, you could say it is my own belief. But with politics.....that's another story. See, my parents are really in to politics. They are Repulblican and so I grew up hating Democrats and Liberals. I grew up believing everything Republicans did. Now that I'm older I watch the news and I'm always up to date with the latest things. I am still very much Republican and Conservative. I'm 18 now and I registered to vote. So, on Tuesday it will be my first time voting. I already knew which candidates I was voting for (straight Republican). But once my dad was talking to me about politics, telling everything about each side. He had a lot of bad stuff to tell me about the Democrats. He told me to vote Republican because we needed all the votes we could get. That kind of pissed me off because he was telling me which way to vote. And even though I going to vote that way; he shouldn't be telling me how to vote. I'm old enough to decide for myself. So, I guess you could say that my political views aren't my own. I'm just following my parents. Most people are what their parents were and I'm one of those people.

Oh, me too.
I guess you could call me a filthy brainwashed liberal because, yep, thats my parents through and through. I wasn't brought up to hate anyone though. They didn't instill any dogmas in me, I just turned out that way.
If I planned on breeding I would probably do the same for my children, but I don't, so we'll leave it at that.

I mean I don't hate all Democrats or Liberals. I mean I don't hate Green Day because of their political views, I don't hate you(I can't really hate someone if I don't know them), I have lots of friends who are democrat and most of my family is democrat, but I don't hate them. I just don't agree with them and sometimes the things they say really really annoy me!

Pretty much my own. I mean, my parents are like, liberal democrats, but, they're kind of odd. And, my friend kind of showed me the Wiccan and Spiritualistic outlook on life, but, I developed a deep intrest in it myself.
