I don't go to church or anything like that and haven't in decades, but yes I believe there is a god more than I don't. Seeing everything coming true that I read in the bible as a kid is scary and makes me kinda look at nonbelievers as fools.

Didn't you say before that slavery is ok due to your religious beliefs? I recall you listing slaves running away from their masters (or something along those lines) as one of the top 100 worst things.

non-religious, probably due to being forced to have to go to church every week for 15 years or so.

I'd say I'm religious yes. I find it peculiar though that many people would say I'm not religious, and just as many would say I'm a fundamentalist.

Raised as a Catholic but now...non-religious I guess, but not really atheist either. I just don't really care if there's a God, no God, many Gods or a pasta monster. Everything's possible. *Plays Twilight Zone Theme*

Religious though I don't follow most of the "rules" like going to church etc. I was raised in a similar environment and my parents are pretty much the same and never forced me to do anything I didn't feel like.

Wasn't raised religious. That shaped my atheistic worldview. Though I'm fascinated by other people's religious culture: rituals, architecture, etc...

Non religious, but I believe in a creator, but not in a being who wishes to be worshipped.

He'll probably cite war and famine and crap that has been happening throughout the course of human history. He'll also ignore the fact that because it's in the Bible, believers have been actively attempting to ensure the prophecies come true.

Religious, but I don't go to church every Sunday. To think that we're here by accident is pretty stupid imo. Also how was the universe created? A big bang out of nowhere? I really don't think so. I'm not trying to debate this either lol, just a heads up.

I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware. Nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself. We are creatures that should not exist by natural law. We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, that accretion of sensory experience and feelings, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everbody's nobody. I think the honorable thing for our species to do is to deny our programming. Stop reproducing. Walk hand in hand into extinction. One last midnight, brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal.

I am non-religious. Ironic since I still go to church, and play the piano for church service....I'm beginning to go less and less. But I've known these people since I was young, and its really hard to let go. Religion aside, they are great people, and without them there is a huge hole in my life. It just sucks that everything that has led up to this point has made me "hate" religion.

I tried for a long time to believe in religion, but it just seems to go against every logical conclusion I can form given the observable evidence.

Just to say 'god did it' is far worse!

I believe in god and consider myself religious but I don't really believe in churches. I just don't see anything special about them, they are just building in my eyes and nothing more. They weren't around when Jesus walked the earth. ANY place can be a church, my room, a secluded area in the woods, while in a plane; He is everywhere.

I just get aggravated if and when I do go to church because all that happens is sitting, kneeling, standing, recite this, say this when the priest says that. It's all very boring to me as well it having the feel that people go through the motions there and do it just to look good in front of others, because it's "what I have to do."

I doubt Jesus had anyone doing excercises while preaching atop a stone. He told stories, delivered messages, and really connected with people. I feel like that's how it really should be, not as up tight and seemingly on auto pilot. This is how I feel.

Funny, I get that sense from Christians all the time. Mostly when they tell me I'm going to hell.
