But to some extent I think most atheists, agnostics and anyone who rejects religion glean a certain sense of superiority out of theistic denial. We go against the flow to outwardly refuse to take part in this mainstream way of thinking and I don't think there would be any reason to do so if we didn't think religion was harmful or stupid to some extent.

Therefore it's natural to think those who are religious are purposefully being blind, stupid or harming themselves. That doesn't mean we think lesser of them particularly. I don't support any right to restrict freedom of others to be themselves or believe what they want to, whether or not it's harmful, or I think it's dumb and useless.

So the fact that it's right to respect others choices; it's not really feeling superior. But at the same time everyone would have the exact same philosophy if we each didn't posses an opinion that others are stupid or blind to think there is a God or there isn't.

No need for a religion to regulate my life, that is, I don't need a government body telling me what I can and can not do. That's for one's principle and upbringing that were taught by your family in terms of 'morals'. You SHOULD have learned what is right from wrong and to not do things to others that you do not want to be done to you or your close ones. If this was universal, the world would be a better place.

I personally don't believe in a higher power and I really don't care about practicing a religion. I would label myself as an Apatheist for ease of understanding.

But, I embrace Atheism often when it comes to some political concerns.

I guess I'm Catholic... i was baptized and had a first communion and went through confirmation and stuff but I never go to curch or pray or anything like that... In all honesty I really dont care about religion, not trying to offend anyone though.

I don't have a religion. I don't want one either.

Philosophy suits me just fine, I suppose.

I'm not sure what category I am, I don't believe religion is truth, though, that doesn't mean I don't believe in a higher power, just not that of a god, more so the earth. If that makes any sense
