    Now i dont want to start a flame war here, and i know that this can be quite a touchy subject, so lets try to keep things calm, i just thought it would be interesting to poll the comunity to see how diverse we are in religious orientation

    Christian? ( i know is broad, feel free to be more specific if you like Protestant? Catholic? Lutheran? )
    Hindu?
    Buddhist?
    Athiest?
    Agnostic?
    Islamic?
    Wiccan?

    im sure i forgot a few so feel free to add to the list

    p.s. NO FIGHTING!! :D

    I'm biologically Jewish, educationally Christian, spiritually Hindu, and intellectually Buddhist.

    OK. No I'm not. I'm just an atheist.

    I dunno, I have no orientation, so I like "nothing", or N/A ;)

    Unitarian Universalist.

    Basically it's a "no one can tell me what to believe in, I can think for myself and if I like a belief from another religion, I can adapt it to mine" belief.

    The best part is, it's free.

    I am more or less subscribed to Buddhist ideas but by birth I am supposedly Taoism which I totally don't believe in.

    I knew I'd seen this before fairly recently, so I won't repeat myself :)

    I believe what I chose to accept, and respect all religions. :)

    There is is good and negative with all beliefs and some contradict either another religions beliefs and ways. So its best to be neutral like Switzerland in this matter. :)

    I'd say I'm scientific-Taoist. Like a cross between atheism and taoism... It's the belief that there is a bigger power, but that it's not a deity, just a scientifically measurable force that we don't understand yet.

    i could explain at great length and it would make sense, but that would be pretty boring for everyone but me :)

    Atheist.

    I accept and respect religious views in others, but don't believe without proof (which would be my definition of "faith"). I don't claim there is no God, I allow for the possibility of such, just there is not a lot of proof at the moment.

    Depending on the mood I'm in I consider myself an agnostic atheist or an atheistic agnostic...
