I am not religious, but I am spiritual. The main purpose of religion is to control the human mind. Most religions are constructs of Satan.

I'm more or less an atheist, because I was raised secularly and never really saw a reason to convert to any religion, simple as that. Would probably have been religious if my parents had been, tbh.

I am Christian and although I have been teased for it in the past, I am always going to be Christian. It is probably because when I was younger I went through a lot of trauma and depression and thoughts I should have never had as a 10 year old girl, and God was the only thing I could turn to. Because of Him my entire life turned around and I am back to normal again. Needless to say that was the hardest time of my life, and I got through it by believing in God. There are things that I would never tell other people that I like to quietly confess to God. It is like I can tell Him things I can't tell others. I don't care how any people try to question my religion, and I would never push my religion on others, but I will always believe in Him.

I'm agnostic for the simple fact that my family forced religion down on me when I was younger.

I can't wait until the truth about God, Satan, Hell, and Heaven becomes widely known. When that time eventually comes, I will be happy and so will many other people will be as well.

I'm agnostic. I won't say atheist because as a science oriented person, my mind is open to new developments. If a god comes down and proves he is real, then I will believe in him. Until then ill reserve my right to be skeptical.

Not one bit. I don't even like going to church. There's just two things that can get me to enter a church. Funeral and Marriage. Much of this due to childhood reasons, like being forced to going to church, stuff like that.

I consider myself a pagan but don't practice it as often as I should. Not sure what part of paganism I should really study either.

Religion is for kings and the weak who both seek a false sense of strength. If you notice, the more feverent a person is about his/her religion the more sadistic his/her thought process has been or is. Ever talk to a "born-again"? Usually some wild-eyed crazy biggot who hopes every Jew, Muslim, Christian, (you fill in the blank) dies some insufferable death (beheaded, burn in hell for eternity).

Most of them claims they love, but turn out to be most vile, mixed up creatures on the face of this earth.

They think they're God and impose their own judgment.

And the worst part, they raise they're children to be just as sick and as hateful as them in the name God, Allah, you fill in the blank.

^Word homie A fellow Samurai Champloo fan..

My experience with religion was an odd one it wasn't forced upon me it was used more as a way to get me out of the house and win my Catholic NaNa's favor, which I failed miserably I found myself bored and thought to myself these stories are boring and unbelievable I can write better stories to brainwash the masses I turned my back and lived a heathens life through my youth. I turned my life around and now am very successful in both professional and personal life and I did it through hard work and sacrifice not religion.Now I realize religion does serve a purpose in life because there are two types of people in society, Leaders and Followers, people have been following through faith since the beginning whereas leaders are rare and are usually the catalyst for change that keep society moving forward. Which is why I personally reject organized religion but I do feel the freedom to make your own decision is the key I would never debate the issue with a religious person for it is not my place to question ones faith to anything.

I never expected to see this question but in a way happy that i am. I'm not or never plan on being religious , to me , faith is built up within , I see religion (and i see spell check every time i write it so i can't even spell it :3) To some it's a choice , feel free to have beliefs in a higher power (what has he or she done for us lately ? :3) , I'm not meaning to make jokes , about religious (and spell check again) people , People born into religion (again typo) and forced to follow because of the way the clan (i'm scottish) works. What really annoys me is having all these people try to force their religion on to others , I've not had a fortunate life so far (but why cry about it ?) and had Christians telling me that god has lead me to them ? and again , i'm not dissing religion but before this turns into a rant of some sort :3 , I'll basically say To Each Their Own. Everyone has their own path , everyone has their own choices. But not everyone are born with that freedom. I vote families respect their children more and instead of saying "hey! you're jewish" or something , hence a choice.

I saw a random question and i gave a random answer :3 , yes , i may be crazy after all YAY!

It depends on what do you mean by religious?
If you ask if i believe in God, then yes.

But I consider faith and religion a too separate things. Real Faith is personal thing, it's yours and yours only. It's you who decide what's right and wrong, what to believe and what to not believe. Religion is parody of faith. It's bunch of rules that frees you from thinking. You don't need to decide what's good or evil, somebody else do it for you, and you only abide what "mentors" says. While faith is like third eye, the religion is curtain that cover sight so you only see what the religion leaders wants you to see.

So to answer a question i'm not religious in that way. I don't engage in adoring dead bodies, random pieces of wood or other materials, images or other people like saints or Virgin Mary. I also don't do useless rituals. It has nothing to do with God or Faith. It's just to satisfy Gnosis fetish of some people or for other is tool for getting power and money. They are also people who use it to just be free of moral responsibility of their actions.
