    My name is Tim and I like many people am Agnostic. I don't folllow any organized religion, but I'm still open minded enough to accept the possibility of higher power being a reality. The thing is, however, sifting through what's fiction and what deities had to simplify to their prophets for the sake of understanding.

    I don't know what Vantology is, but it's an honor that a premium user responded to my post

    "Premium" only means that someone paid a few dollars to give me that dubious honorific.
    It ain't worth a bucket'o warm spit.
    Even that worthless flea bitten loser Sunrise is "premium".

    My van (bought to replaced burned up Mr Truck) is named Mr Van.
    I've spent much time outfitting him for moving machinery, so he's
    practically become a religion.

    Yeah...so first piece of advice; if you're too nice to @Revoltingest he'll end up following you home.

    Welcome to RF, Tim.

    2 Chronicles 15:15 - All Judah rejoiced concerning the oath, for thy had sworn with all their heart and had sought Him earnestly and He let them find Him. So the Lord gave them rest on every side.

    It is very simple. Ask God to show you the truth and then earnestly seek Him with your whole heart.

    It doesn't quite work that way.
    @sunrise123 will follow him home, wagging his tail all the way.
    I'm more of a stalker than a follower.

    Yeah, welcome Tim, not been here long myself but find it a really interesting forum. Plenty of interesting debates, plenty of thought provoking posts, and the occasional squabble! :)

    Welcome.

    I also accept the possibility of a higher power, despite being a gnostic atheist. I accept the possibility of a number of things, as a matter of fact. They include higher powers, blue fairies, planets ruled by Superman, and a whole lot of possible things.

    I guess it means I am agnostic about them too. Doesn't it?

    :)

    Ciao
