Are you a religious or spiritual person? Meaning do you practice any or believe in any of the world's major faiths, or have one that's in the minority that you follow?

I am religious, I am Catholic.

laugh.gif That was great!

I was raised catholic, but never really got into it. I guess I'd consider myself an athiest now that no one's forcing me to go to church. happy.gif

Religion can be broken down into two basic parts: philosophy and ritual/superstition.

The philosophical element, I can very much accept, because it's based on reason and logic, and there's room for healthy debate about it.

The ritual and superstition, I reject wholeheartedly.

I'm not an atheist, but I don't subscribe to any religion.

I'm very sure of my faith - I'm a Salvationist (Salvation Army). I'm certain of God and His love, and I know I've felt His prescence very strongly. (I tend to cry a lot when I can feel Him especially close! And it's just the most wonderful feeling!)

I've been going to an "Alpha" course recently - it's a sort of introduction to Christianity, though it's really helpful for people who are already Christians too. I know it's helped me to strengthen and understand my own faith a lot better. happy.gif I'd recommend it to everyone.

Nah, I can say with some degree of certainty that there's more to the universe than what can be seen and measured. It's just not the same as what any of the major religions say it is.

Agnostic is not a religion per se. It's the belief that a higher being is out there but you haven't decided what it is if anything.

I was under the impression that you needed more evidence before you could go along with the idea of a higher power if you were an agnostic...

As far as I know it's not an actual religion just as being an athiest is not a religion.

Of course, I guess that depends on the person. tongue.gif

I never said it was a religion.
Religion carries a certain level of conviction with it, whereas agnosticism is the very opposite - claiming a lack of sufficient knowledge to form a set of convictions.

my religion? well currently i am a believer of what i call the cycle of zen... its simple really. where zen ends, ass kicking begins... and where ass kicking ends, zen begins once more. through this cycle necessary conflict is created, with said conflict balancing out the universe.
