Agnostic or Athiest - Which are they since neither know for sure?
Webster's Dictionary defines the Athiest is "one who denies the existence of God". An Agnostic is one that is in non-committal position as to existence of God
According to estimates of record a little less than one-third the world population is considered to be Christian. Just over 20 percent are Islam About 15 percent practice Hinduism. About 15 percent have no religion which includes Agnostic and Athiest. Then there are five other religious groups having about 5 percent each of the world population.
Actually it appears those claiming to be Athiest should call themselves Agnostic since both are sitting on the fence when it comes to believing in Jesus Christ and the Bible. Neither believes there is a Heaven or Hell.
People came to America to gain their religious freedom. However, religion has become big business in this country. There is big money paid to ministers and church workers. Some churches own all kinds of real estate without paying taxes on them.
Has it become a scam, taking money from people with a promise there is a better life after death?
Since this country is in such bad financial condition, don't you think the churches should start paying their share of property taxes?
