    This is going to end well.
    I personally like to keep my personal opinion on religions to myself because I know most people will not agree with me on them.

    My beliefs are probably closest to Buddhism but I don't follow any particular faith or religion.

    I believe in the idea of individual beliefs - that is to say I don't believe in any particular religion, but believe in choice ideas from some and other ideals in my life.

    I am Catholic of the Roman Rite. This thread won't end in disaster because people are too scared to be intolerant about religions...but then again this is the internet.

    As a Swedish born, I am a member of the Swedish Christian church. I am baptized, most Swedes are. However I am a member just because I want to eventually marry in a church, and want to be buried in a graveyard.
    When it comes to my beliefs, I am... I think it's called Passive Agnostic. I don't believe in anything at the moment. I'm open for ideas, I think everyone should believe anything they want, and I won't correct them or discuss against them. The only time I discuss religion with people, is to learn more.
    However, if somehow some god provides me with something, a feeling, a revelation, anything... I would probably believe. But as of now? nope.

    I looked at the article and I kind of get the feeling that this is one of those times when wikipedia fails. I saw many examples of inaccuracies within the article (i.e. I saw a video documentary where Stephen Hawkings admitted with his own computer voice that his time reversal concept was a miscalculation.
    I'm also pretty sure that the Newton did not believe that time was infinite, but instead had a starting point and continued infinitely.) Could you explain a little more about your circular time theory because I do not get it at all.

    Hey look another religion thread.
    If I had to guess i'd say most of the religious people are follow some form of christianity since it seems most people here are from United States and Christianity is prevalent here. Nonetheless its would still be interesting to see for myself.

    Also I'm Atheist, I simply find religion to be an outdated way of thinking. I have a huge respect for Buddhism though.

    Shouldn't this be a poll?

    I'm an existential nihilist. I'm a strong atheist when it comes to the Abrahamic god, but a weak agnostic atheist about a creator.

    You're kidding right? Obviously the most popular religion is video games. It is divided into the major sects of Ninty, Sony, and Microsoft. And there are the minorities like Sega and Dingoo. And finally there are the outcasts that think their iDevices are gaming rigs.

    I was expecting a poll, too, but there would be too limited and there would be too few options available to even cover all the STANDARD belief systems that exist in the world, let along all of the other little nit-picky personal beliefs that different people have even WITHIN the same formalized religion.

    For example, I'm Mormon and I personally feel that I believe (In an open minded way) what every Mormon SHOULD believe. However, I've seen so many weird ideas that other members of my church have that they just believe because they think everyone one else does and they just ASSUME it's the official, correct belief. (That's the way I see it, anyhow, but I'm not about to strike their belief down because I think it's wrong. At most I might just share and explain what I think and see if it sinks in ... or if they choose not to accept my concept of things, which is fine.)

    Also, there are those who knowingly differ from their religion's "official" belief or have other little ideas that their specific religion doesn't really take sides on.

    There's just too much grey area for a poll.

    Interesting how you attempted to start something by baiting atheists, kind of makes it look like you're the one who has nothing better to do. You're saying that atheists are going to judge people in this thread based on their beliefs, but you've already prejudged atheists based on their beliefs. The tone of your post seems purposely provocative like you're intentionally trying to start a flame war. Just an observation...

    I'm not an atheist, though I am agnostic. I was born into a Roman Catholic family, christened a few months later and confirmed in my early teens. Since then, I've developed a fairly sceptical point of view about everything, especially after reading the bible a few times. Judging people based on their beliefs is very wrong in my book, because nobody knows who is right and who is wrong.

    As for me, I have no time for religion. If I believe in anything it's in the potential of all humankind to perform great feats of heroism, our capacity to bring light to even the darkest of days. I simply try to get as close to that pure light as I can, although I'll always be held back due to basic and honest human nature. For example, right now I help to sell monitored security systems and alarms. I like the job because I know that the people who listen to my pitch may actually think about their security situation, which could possibly help to save their lives later down the line, even if they don't buy the product. I consider it a noble choice of profession. But I'm not such a pure soul as to say that I'm not also motivated by the prospect of a huge commission bonus. If I assist in the sale of 3 systems a week, I take home basically double money that week, which will enable me to fly out to New Zealand to be with the woman I love. So I'm no pure spirit. But I feel that by following a simple ethical code, the results of which I can observe and confirm, rather than a mainstream religion which asks me to take far too many things on faith alone, I can have the inspiration of a religion while not being tied down by rules and concepts that are badly outdated.
