The title says it all really. I was going to ask "What is your religion?", but many people, myself included, would say that they didn't have one.

So what are you? Christian, Jew, Atheist, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, Agnostic, Sikh, whatever whatever - I'd like to know.

Hello Noodle,

I'd class myself as an atheist, simply due to insubstantial evidence that some 'higher' governing entity exists. The only evidence of 'God' is within a book of fables written thousands of years ago which has most likely been innacurately translated...

However, I'm quite interested in the ancient, more 'obscure' religions, I enjoy reading about the beliefs of cultures such as the Mayans, Incans and Ancient Egyptians

What about yourself? I could ask you on MSN right now but OH WELL!

By a route obscure and lonely,
Haunted by ill angels only,
Where an Eidolon, named night,
On a black throne reigns upright,
I have reached these lands but newly
From an ultimate dim Thule
From a wild clime that lieth, sublime,
Out of space
Out of time.

I'm Christian, but I'm not 100% hell bent over it, I am very open minded about religion, my belief is sort of a blend between Science and Religion, almost like, what isn't answered by Scientific laws, has a chance of being answered by religion, and until any one religion is proven right (which will never happen in my life time, if ever) then none of them are.
God left us with such little detail as to what to believe, and a man-written book doesn't mean much in my eyes, I don't think any particular religion is completely logical. They all lack details and a large majority of religion, especially Christian, is based on creating fear to control hard core believers, by creating such places as hell, the ultimate punishment.

@Novasoft: I would describe myself as an agnostic, but that's a bit of a blanket term, and as yet I haven't pinned down a suitable descriptor for myself. I too think that there is insubstantial evidence of God, but I also believe that to be an Atheist you must also prove that there is no God, which again is impossible to do (IMO anyway). So I reside in between.

@Brandon: Yeah, I commend your views, you obviously don't take everything on face value like some folk do. I'd like to see where your belief in God is based on.

Well put BrandonC, not many Christians are *willing to admit the fact that science comes into things* somewhere along the line. Also, very few Christians are able to accept that the teachings of Christianity can be somewhat contradictory.

BrandonC:

"a large majority of religion, especially Christian, is based on creating fear to control hard core believers, by creating such places as hell, the ultimate punishment."

It's always been my opinion that the main reason for somebody dedicating themselves completely to Christianity comes from the fact that they fear Death and/or the unknowningness surrounding the 'afterlife'. Of course, there may be other fundamental reasons, let me know!

I find it hard to understand how so many people can live their lives and base their lifestyles on the writings of a book. Where is the motivation in doing so and what is the purpose?

I used to be Agnostic, but over the past few years I found myself hating religion so much I became Athiest.

I've always found that the most logical, though sort of disturbing, answer as to what happens after death is that you basically blank out. Nothing else happens, you just fade out of existence. Though this is highly debatable, considering the idea that to this day, the ability of conscious (knowing you exist), is still a mystery to scientists. With this said, it's very easy, and very logical to say that your conscious is in short, your soul, and is what travels to an after life.
There is no logical reason, side from the natural wonder of what happens after death, that explains why almost every single religion to date, has had some sort of story of an afterlife. So naturally, something in our mind is telling us that one exists, even if it's not specific as to explain what it's really like.

Strange... because they know for sure it's all made up.

I don't really know the word for it, but i don't believe in any one thing.
We don't know what the truth is so i'm not going to believe in anything (meaning i disbelieve other things)
I try to keep an open mind about everything.
