This is a very hard question to answer. You could have a ton of beliefs, political, moral, religious. And then you could get even more specific from there... Which do you mean?

I guess I can understand the point of being a Nihilist. The problem I have with identifying one is that life having a "point" is more so an opinion than a fact so the entire concept is pointless. I would say I'm a nihilist for my own life because I'm worthless, but for other people who are gifted or talented? They can find a point in life. There is no "point" in life in that it's all based on what you want to do. You aren't born with a purpose inherently set, you have to find it for yourself.

If it's a question of religion I guess I'm an atheist. Politically left leaning. IDK lol

You are quite the person! I would say personally I'm a masochist. I can also say that I do not agree with you on your nihilist beliefs, but I can agree Transhumanism (to an extent that is)

Religion: I believe that all religions could possibly exist and at the same time only one, a few, or none could. I believe that regardless of your personal beliefs one should respect other people's religious beliefs.

Political: I am heavily distrustful of government. I don't like them in my business, I dont like them in other people's business, I don't like government period be it corrupt or a saint to scoiety. So as you would expect I'm very anti-government but unlike true Anarchists I don't want it gone because I know of its necessity. Just don't expect me to like or trust a single thing they say or do.

Personal: I believe that there isn't meaning to life but unlike most people I do not view it as a bad thing but in fact a good thing. It means to me that you can be what you want to be and do what you want to do because in the end it doesn't matter. No restrictions, just a blank canvas and you get to decide what's in the picture. Freedom at its most rawest of forms.

Personally: My adolescent angst ruled my life for a very long time, and I became quite the misanthrope as a result. However, that time is over for me. In lieu, I've now become quite an extreme nihilist. I mean, life is inherently meaningless and all. We give purpose to our own lives. At least that's what I think.

Religiously: I'm a bonafide agnostic. I can neither prove nor deny God's existence, at least definitively. I'd like to think that I know the truth, but that's really just another form of delusion. I don't find the notion of an omniscient and/or omnipotent being watching over us to be particularly appealing. At the same time, I'm not really appalled by it. However, I do find myself appalled by what people have done under religious pretenses. You know, how people have justified atrocious behavior by means of religion. The Spanish Inquisition is a great example of religious intolerance and repression.

Politically: I think politics is pretty dumb for the most part. Categorically speaking, I'm definitely an independent. I agree with a lot of what's considered liberal, but I also appreciate some conservative views. Hmm, maybe that makes me seem like a closet democrat...I don't really care at the end of the day though.

Politically I would call myself a Classical Liberal. I believe in minimal government, strong support and spread of civil liberties under the rule of law, and support of a free market with common sense government oversight to protect against environmental, labor, and economic abuses. I am a registered Libertarian and voted for Gary Johnson in the 2016 election and preferred Trump to Clinton.

Religiously, I am an atheist ranking at a solid 6 on the Dawkins Scale. I find it highly improbable there is a god and will operate under that assumption instead living a moral standard based on logic derived from the precepts of natural law and individual autonomy. I also believe these concepts should be extended to certain sentient or pre-sentient animals we share the planet with including whales, dolphins, great apes like chimpanzees and gorillas, and elephants.

I don't believe in gods, although I suppose I could somewhat agree that we are all gods, in a way.
I don't just mean humans. All of us. Everyone. People of every species, whether animal or plant.

I do believe in souls. I believe we all have souls. All living people, animal or plant.
We are all special and worthy. We are all living, and thus we are worth something.
We each have our own lives, our own desires, our own uses, our own deaths.
Whether we yearn to step onto the moon, or we just want to consume sunshine.

I believe all life is sacred and equally valuable. Of course we will prioritize who we want to live.
But just because we make a choice in who lives or dies doesn't make one life less valuable.
For this reason, I don't agree with vegans or vegetarians who only eat plants to save animal lives.
That's NOT any less cruel to me, because they are still murdering and eating plant lives.
And I don't think there's anything wrong with murdering and eating things, as long as you respect them.
It is NATURAL to eat. It is natural to follow your path in the food chain. Just give your meal respect.
Don't act like an ant is less worthy than you. Yes, we will kill things. It's in our nature, and that's fine.
But respect what you kill. Respect what you eat. Know that you live through taking life. That's what I believe.

Political: I really don't like politics that much.
Religious: I'm agnostic. I believe that it could be anything to have created our universe, but I don't have any specific belief on a god or science or anything.
Personal: You don't have to be nice to everyone; if they piss you off, then let them know. Kindness is a good trait, but it's not everything. I'd rather be sullen and standoffish, than put a forced smile on my face and use a cheery voice.

I guess I'm kind of cynical.

I strongly belief that the average person is a complete moron.

I believe in science and fact thus I believe in god. God is SOMETHING with the ability to create yet does not need to be created. <-- this much is fact that cant be ignored.

God may or may not even have any inteligence. God might simply be a special group of particals.

My opinion the "God" that created us is a higher dimensional being who is pretty much an alien and created us using technology not magic. I find the idea of a big bang creating humans a little to far fetched example take apart a watch no pieces connected. Stick that watch in a box and shake it for a infinite ammount of time the watch parts will never go back togeather to create a watch. A watch is FAR simpler than the simplest life form.
