So ARE you religious? [Now with poll!]
«: May 01, 2009, 07:37:51 AM»
Since we have a thread ON religion in in-depth, and I don't think I've seen a topic asking about your religion.

Only listing the major religions as identified by wikipedia, feel free to tell about your sect and such. :D

KEEP YOUR OPINION TO YOURSELF OR TAKE IT TO PM.

Please do not abuse people based on their answers to this thread.

thanks mystery mod for the poll. :D Please pm me if you want that sketch. <3

...o_O ... uhm. Okay..... then.....? I think that's why I put 'other' for people who believe in things but aren't part of a major religion or one of the listed.

Non-practicing? As in, say, a Catholic, but you don't go to church/pray. That still makes you a catholic, does it not? And if you feel it doesn't make you a catholic, enough to not click 'christian', then you can click other and say 'non practicing catholic'.

Either way, Non-religious still stands for those with no religion (and can stand for those who believe in something, but do not consider it a religion-this is personal preference based.), and Other stands for ANYTHING ELSE that isn't listed. I don't.. see any validity in this argument.

Tribal fits .. sort of. Technically Pagan but more based off what can be determined from archaeological evidence than written in any instructive book - feels more personal that way.

I'm an Atheist, but I enjoy practicing, teaching, and talking about the concepts and values that religion can teach us.

Things like Karma, the four noble truths, and the importance of spirituality rather than belongings, appreciating life and practicing to be virtuous for the good of yourself and others, the belief that people are born pure and without dark intentions and can choose to do right or wrong, things like that.

Taken as a whole, I feel that some beliefs that come from religious teachings are out of date, barbaric, and hold us back as a race. Am I saying that I believe in a few religions and only take what I like from them? No. I take them as fairy tales; I do not believe the events in the book actually ever happened, but I believe the moral that they teach us at the end.

Well, I don't really know what to call myself. I believe there is a creator of this universe (deity or whatever), but I don't feel the need to worship at all.

I think humanity has to grow strong and rely upon ourselves. The concept that we have to be saved from ourselves...Such as in evangelism, upsets me in some way I can't quite put my finger on.

Agnostic.

I don't really believe a set religion, but I don't not believe that there might not be a god/gods/being/force behind what happens in the world.  My mind is open to the idea, but I'm not going to believe in something I'm unsure of.
