I just realized it was here & I have read a few threads & hope you don't mind if I pop in.

I don't know what I consider myself. I have been studying Buddhism..and I generally believe in God as a whole - but more of an Agnostic - "don't believe God is influencing my life" sort of way. I don't know if that makes sense. But anyway - I have found all of the threads I have read to be very well thought out & intelligent. I usually stay over on the general spirituality..but if you all dont' mind - I find myself in agreement with most of what I have read here so far - so I am hoping I can hop over here a bit as well.
