    Just wondering how many of you belive in a form of god...
    I've noticed the more intelectually inclined places I goto online the less religious people there are...

    Oh hey look at that. Im member #4500. Horray for rounded numbers :p

    I believe in the wrongness of your poll...

    Agnostics claim it is (and in some cases, will be) impossible to know conclusively whether God exists or not.

    Some people believe in God, and pure chance (the idea being that God is manifested in terms of pure chance.) Some people are atheists, and believe in life without pure chance - eg. solopsists.

    Oh yes... welcome to PF!

    I am atheist
    Religions are sects, and their members are zombies that follow the rules of their religion

    I'm a landover baptist.

    Check out my religion's kickass official website at www.landoverbaptist.com

    First, what is a landover bapstist?
    Second, I voted for the middle one, because I'm against a very organized religion, but am obviously religious to those who know me to some extent.

    Land Overbaptist is the best religion of all. They even have the best halloween haunted houses.

    Seriously, you unsaved heathens can be so ignorant sometimes.

    MAYBE, if you'd open your eyes and accept the one and only path to truth, you'd be able to not only go to heaven, but read and comprehend text.

    Man I hate heathens.

    First, I hope you're joking, I have a hard time telling with you.
    Second, I didn't bother with the website because one time I found the scientology website and had to read for literally hours about the life and times of L. Ron Hubbard (or whatever his name is) to find out what they are about. In my opinion, this bio sounds made up, or he had an unbelievable life.

    WOW! That isn't what I was expecting. I agree with some of the veiws that were obvious (I didn't read much of anything though), but am shocked at the thong banner.
    EDIT: () parts are by me.

    Way to be overly cynical! I'm sure many anal-retentive, lonely science nerds with low self esteem love trying to belittle highschool students in order to make themselves feel better*thumbs up*.

    Children, be nice...

    Heh. But I don't want to be nice! I won't to bake cookies and then show them to God, and he'll say, "Wow, these are good cookies, Jeebus."

    And then I'll say something like, "Ya know those were covered with LSD tablets."

    Then God will say, "Really?" And I would shout, "Yes, it just goes to show you that you are not omniscient!"

    Oh, by the way, I'm atheist.

    I'm sorry folks but we have expressed before that PF no longer supports the discussion of religion.
