I think Evo (the mentor at GD) will find it quite okay, as long as the thread doesn't degenerate into a flame war thing.






Hides my gods&angels-blaster from Evo's sight...

Are religious threads banned because they degenerate or is there an informal hatred of religion on this forum.

I think my religious belief is best described by this lyric:
"On my deathbead I will pray to the gods and the angels, like a pagan, to anyone who will take me to heaven." (Audioslave- Like a Stone.)

I don't so much believe in a higher power as I do wish for one. I do hope that there is a god or gods that could watch over me and see me into eternal life when I die, but I have trouble finding the faith to believe that there is.

I thinkthat if such creatures existed, they would be about as friendly towards us as Nyarlathotep&Chtulhu..

Like was said by several posters: Religious posts are not allowed on PF. While a simple poll might start out innocently, threads like this very often degenerate into flamewars when someone with strong beliefs to either side starts preaching.

I'm going to lock this thread.

Sorry folks.
