....have been made. I was wondering if they are showing for you.

A few new options are present. Small changes have been added.

For anyone who isn't sure where to find the changes, go to the User Control Panel-->Profile-->World Views

One of the changes is World Views, which was Free thinker or believer. Under this heading Undecided should be added along with a change in spelling for christian.

Beleiver? Or not?

Is your capacity for thinking bound and strapped by the short sighted limitations that come with ruling out the existence of higher beings or is your mind free to conceive of finding a purpose in nature and to consider the existence of one or more immeasurably superior beings?

I do not think that my unbelief bounds me at all. I think I am quite free to think for myself, and I am doing so. This thinking and research has lead me to the conlcusion that there is no god. So right now that is what I believe. However, I am still open to the possibility. Something could still prove to me that there is a god, but it has yet to happen. However, I am quite certain this god would not be the god of the abrahamic religions.

I would then ask if your mind is being strapped by a belief in a higher being.

I have never said "there. is. no. god." or god-like thing but until one is proven to me, I'm not gonna sit here and say that i believe in one...unfounded faith is not my style :D

I am quite certain that the abhramic god does not exist. Could a god-like entity exist? Possibly, but I'd put the probability on the low end of the scale, along with everyone's head will simultaneously explode the next time I speak.

no matter how many people say something is true, i will not believe them unless they provide actual evidence. :D

Chris: "You guys lack imagination."

More or less, that is the context of your post.

Chris, we want the evidence. We're curious about our origins, but we see there is no evidence of this 'god' person besides a bunch of deluded people claiming this because their parents told them.

So while it's cute to pretend, it's more satisfying for us to see the evidence and draw conclusions from this.
For the same reason you reject other gods, I reject yours.
