What's Your Religion

Post by TheWhitePawn » Wed Nov 04, 2009 12:41 am

I know that Cluedokid did this years and years ago, but with so many new people on the forums, I thought it would be interesting to see what religion people affiliate themselves with (if any).

Keep in mind that this is not meant to promote any religious belief, and it isn't even to explain why you are what you are (especially since the latter tends to be a precursor to the former). It's just for fun :D

Probably agnostic. I pray occasionally.

I say agnostic. I really don't believe in anything, but find myself praying. Either it's a habit I can't break or I actually believe it'll help. Still not sure.

Atheist

Atheist myself. I have some feelings about God as though she were real, I just can't quite nail myself down to something that I find so logically problematic.

I have one Jewish parent and one Christian parent, but I personally identify myself as Jewish. I can't explain why, but I just don't feel like I truly am Christian even partially. I feel like I am Jewish in my heart--again, I don't exactly know why ; I just am. Even so, I could never bring myself to part from Christmas when I move out--I would still celebrate Christmas, but I would just celebrate it as a family tradition more than a religious holiday.
One of my friends is an atheist, but he doesn't go around acting like he's better than everyone else because of it, unlike SOME of my classmates, however. :roll: He just casually mentioned it one day and then dropped it altogether.

Atheist - but again still celebrate Christmas, as an occasion to spend with family and friends rather than a religious meaning.

Oh trust me, you don't have to be Agnostic to pray everytime you fly. You just have to watch a movie about a plane crash the night before going on on an actual plane. :shock:

LoL... would that make me crazy if I love doing that? I always watch plane crash/problem movies before flying. I especially love Executive Decision, Air Force One and the first episode of Lost. But I feel that it calms me down because then I feel like I'm better prepared for possible scenarios.

And about Christmas... it's really not even a religious holiday for Christians anymore. It's more about presents. And everyone loves presents :)

I don't lol... It's alway building up your hopes and pretend to have an excited reaction on your face when it's a pen set or a fifty... or in my case at least...

I'm not entirely sure why, but I still sometimes say heartfelt prayers of thanks to the Christian god when really good things happen. I curse God when crappy things happen. I imagine that if I were really terrified about something, I would probably plead in prayer for help.

Yet I don't really believe that God exists. Is it merely bad habits, is it intrinsic human impulse? Couldn't say. It doesn't seem to make sense, but there it is.

I label myself agnostic. I think there must be something out there, behind the scenes. Whether it's the Christian God, a nameless force, or an invisible, pink unicorn, I don't know.
