    I couldn't give two fucks about this. Until Trent puts out a gospel record and starts preaching to me about saving myself, I don't give ANY SHITS what he personally believes. I don't understand why anyone would care.

    Ya know, going through rehab and the 12 Steps and such usually ends up doing this to people. And if it works, THAT IS FINE. It is better than doing drugs.

    Honestly, Trent really hasn't referenced God any differently that I have... and I promise that I'm not only an atheist (agnostic if you want to be pedantic) but I would actually actively oppose the god depicted in the bible. I mean, how you can you not oppose childish fascistic tyranny of that level? I could see Trent having some uncategorized spiritual belief.

    Also, is this the thread where I can talk about how Paul was a false prophet and the entire foundation of current Christianity is based mostly on Paul and not a whole lot of Jesus?

    blah blah blah, you missed the first several pages in here wherein we cited Reznor texts and how he cites the devil in the back of his car, the extent of his sin, madonna / whore, angels bleeding at the tainted touch of his caress, et al., in which Trent Reznor's entire career (or, at least, the first several albums) as a NARRATOR was built on Christian religious traditions, devil vs. angel, etc. NARRATOR. Perhaps unreliable narrator, but narrator.

    People tend to put their rock stars on personal pedestals and when they find out that their rock stars don't subscribe to the exact same beliefs because maybe those song lyrics weren't 100% autobiographical, they're strangely shocked. Which is bizarre. It's art. We are to separate the artist from the art. We are to separate ourselves from the artist.

    Again NIN would make best Christian music ever! All The Sin on the forum would probably turn into All The Grace though.

    NIN is the best always! Everything he does sounds awesome! I'd like to hear a spiritual NIN album, it would be off the chain, tellin ya.

    Not sure , he is an artist ..they are very reflective passionate people.So he could believe in a creator use it to channel his passion...or he could be a hedonistic bot ..but if so he would have run out of energy by now.

    In some situations where we cannot explain something we must include 'God' in the list of possibilities. When studying, discussing, or theorizing the origin of the universe and life scientists will, more often than not, include God in the list of theories. Even though they discuss God, they will lean heavily towards God having no existence or role in anything; but they must still consider the possibility of a creator.

    Trent Reznor is well known for his references to God and religion, he can pass blame on God; but he also acknowledges that he is responsible for his misery and failures; as well as other driving factors such as shitty relationships.

    After many years of crying to God, TR has discovered the source for his agony; it's not God picking on him; it's a Demon.

    No, Trent does not believe in God... its literally a Terrible Lie... but when you are in a dark place or depressed you want to believe that you're not alone and someone or something is watching out for you.
