    This is in no way a debate, I am just curious about the numbers.

    I will probably get around to listing various religions/beliefs, but I have no time now.

    If you want, you may state your belief, and you may give a reason why you chose [whatever].

    And one word of caution, no trying to bash, trash, demolish other ways of thinking it is uncalled for.

    Choice 3 clarification: Agnostic [Non-religious] is when you think there is a higher power, but two shits later you couldn't care less. Or a more 'proper' definition: Agnostics cannot deny the possibility of the existence God, but they don't believe.

    Non-religious. Well more correctly, I don't think theres a higher power, not "not giving a shit there is a higher power".

    Or even more precisely, I believe in Science and all the solid evidence.

    Also thanks, I'll fix the poll. [​IMG]

    I am pretty sure that's Atheism, Non-religious [Agnostic] is when you think there is a higher power, but two shits later you couldn't care less. [​IMG]

    I believe in God, and I believe God doesn't care about humanity. Just my opinion.

    You should put Agnostic up there as an option not have it as Non-Religious

    Close, but no. Agnostics don't accept the fact that God may or may not exist, they just don't care for the most part. Religious people think God exists (monotheists anyway). Atheists think God does not exist. Obviously, there's differences in all of them.

    Neither agnosticism nor atheism are considered religions. They're actually ideas.

    Well it really isn't random. After seeing the sheer amount of posts in that debate (mentioned in OP) bashing Christianity, I was very curious to see how the numbers added up. [​IMG]

    There's varying levels of agnostic also.
    Wikipedia has a good article on it.

    I am .... well I won't say there isn't a higher power but I don't really care at this moment. So agnostic I suppose.

    God is the thought process you follow , good or bad. Dont dismiss that compassion in the back of your mind. Bring it to the front and thats how "god" lives.

    Spiritual should also be an option.

    Well all I am interested in knowing right now is are [you] religious (belief in a higher power), Atheistic (No belief whatsoever in god), or Agnostic (belief there is a higher power, but don't care).

    I'll try to get around to adding choices for what religion you are as a second question.

    I would say spiritual if I had to label it. I am not into one religion or another so No to #1, I know "god" exists so no to #2 , and i know theres a "higher power" but I do care so no to # 3.
