Religious. Why? because I'm a scientist. You'd have to study quantum dynamics, chaos theory and cosmology to glean any kind of understanding as to why God does or doesn't exist. I hate it when non-scientists try to use science to argue the case for or against a God. Stop trying to use science incorrectly!! Science is a tool for inquiry, not to be used in a debate to bolster your personal feelings.

In a nut shell...1) All forces in the universe interact with the space time fabric in every location whether to a greater or lesser degree (virtual particle mechanics, field mechanics, electrodynamics, gravitation?). 2) All motion and field coupling is information transfer. 3) The universe is one giant system of cross coupling fields, multiple dimensions (the third dimension is a projected shadow of the n higher dimensions, as above so below) and super strings. 4) So n-dimensional space (perhaps 9) is a large grouping of information laid out in membranes. 5) When enough information in the universe (perhaps local spacetime) becomes self aware, the Universe itself becomes self aware (laws of subset, this may not actually apply). If all space and time is connected, then if God doesn't exist now, then it will later in the future, and since all space and time is connected, God already exists. You can think of people living in a tiny little cell in Gods brain, at a very specific instant . We are barely self aware, and we cannot even see the past except through memory. How can you possibly know whether there is a God or not? Faith is what you feel, Science is a tool to be used. Do not mix the two!!

Non-religious because my parent's religious view was pushed upon me and it pushed me away from the church. Was originally Catholic, but as i grew up religion became more absurd in my eyes.

I'm dyslexic and agnostic. There have been many nights where I lie awake in bed wondering if there really is a dog almighty.

I'm a Christian, because simply, for me anyway, Life is so much more easier to live through when you have a goal to work for, makes life seem a lot brighter when the world has got you down, gives me hope that this life isn't the only thing I got to look forward to, plus the feeling that you've got someone watching out for you and you have a purpose is just so amazing. Religion for me isn't just sitting in church and telling people they're going to hell. I don't think I've ever told anyone that they're going to hell, because it's not my place to decide that. I'm not gonna lie to you and tell you I don't judge people because every does that. Doesn't matter what it's about, it's human nature to judge, we judge each other on what we wear, what we say, how our hair is, our lifestyle, but I think it's wrong to actually come out and say it. I really just try to mind my own business, I'm not the type of guy to stand on a street corner and yell at you to beg for forgiveness and repent. I personally like to set an example by how I live and stuff, and hopefully it makes an impact on someone's life.

My family practices Catholicism, but I don't have a religion, myself (thanks to my birth father not wanting me baptized).
I'm choosing to continue not having one, because there are so many religions out there and more than likely, if any, only one is correct, so how do we know we've chosen the right one?
Plus some religions are filled with hypocracy, so I've just decided to follow my heart on things and do what's morally right.
I guess I do practice Catholicism to some degree with following God and believing in the Archangels.

Protestant Christian.

I don't want to go into much detail on why, so I'll just say because believing in something good is better then believing in something flawed or nothing at all.

I'm an atheist, I don't take anybody's crap about religion. Religion staunches growth, whereas atheism is great, it expands our knowledge and allows questions. However, I'd like to think there's some sort of afterlife, as there are many other dimensions to our universe (11 according to the String Theory), but not necessarily a "god" to rule that, there's no such thing.

Religion is one big fairy tale, people should realize that by now. How do you know if religion wasn't first created as an actually joke, and there were just too many people down the line of history to take it seriously?


Sikhism a religion proved there were that many dimensions long before scientists did lol

"I maintain that the cosmic religious feeling is the strongest and noblest motive for scientific research. Only those who realize the immense efforts and, above all, the devotion without which pioneer work in theoretical science cannot be achieved are able to grasp the strength of the emotion out of which alone such work, remote as it is from the immediate realities of life, can issue." -Albert Einstein

Since people seem to be telling of their beliefs, I shall post mine as well.
I believe that God makes up the fabric of the Universe, but is not limited to this form. He exists in nothing as He exists in everything. He is not subject to Natural Laws which He created, though He almost always works within them. He created the Universe for, what I believe, to be entertainment purposes, similar to how we nature documentaries and the such. While He did this, He does still love us. After all, why freely make something you don't like? Not only this, but He also has quite the sense of humor and an appreciation of beauty. He is Almighty, All-Holy, and All-Glorious, among others. I believe this world is a test from God, and He rewards us well if we do well. As believing in Him is at least part of the test, when He does miracles, there is almost always a way, be it an extremely rare occurrence , to explain them naturally, but there are extremely rare circumstances when He does miracles without any possible natural explanation to be given. When we fail the test, whatever makes up such test, we do get punished. Does this mean he does not love us? Does it mean a mother does not love their child if they punish them?
*He and her are the pronouns used, but as there is only One God, there cannot be genders, no matter what His form used.

Yes, I am.

Just to clear some things up: Not all religions have a god, nor do they betray science.

Quit your stereotyping and read a book about religion.
