Where do your beliefs come from?

What I mean is, what formed your beliefs? Do you have the same beliefs as your parents and the people who raised you? Were you taught the way you think and believe by your family, or in school, did you question what you were taught? Why do you believe what you do?

Any kind of belief goes, religious, political, whatever.

I have some of the same beliefs as my parents, but I didn't grow up being taught any religion strongly. I agree with them about 50% on politics. I guess I was raised to question things though, so a lot of my beliefs have come from questioning things and reading from a lot of different sources. That's why I ask so many questions.

See, I always thought the Bible was an interpretation of the word of God as heard by prophets, and told to people who were literate. And there have been so many different versions, and translations, and language changes besides that. Plus, I don't really see God taking the time to write a book. I think he'd be too busy making disasters and improving peoples' lives.

It's encouraging to see how many people know all about the Bible.

He's the supreme ruler of the universe. You's think He would have a contingency plan in case we srewed up His message, don't you think?
