cheers, its pretty good. the point to the poll is to see how evenly spread we as a forum are.
Thou shalt give equal worth to tragedies that occur in non-English speaking countries as to those that occur in English-speaking countries
Thou shalt not pimp my ride
Thou shalt not quote me happy
Thou shalt not shake it like a Polaroid picture
Thou shalt not wish your girlfriend was a freak like me
Thou shalt spell the word Pheonix p-h-e-o-n-i-x, not p-h-o-e-n-i-x, regardless of what the Oxford English Dictionary tells you
Thou shalt think for yourselves

Let's make another step and define 'religious.' Because I belong to a 'religion,' and I have faith in the covenant of that 'religion,' but I hardly consider it a religion.

I have faith in faithlessness. Does that count?

Hang on, sorry to burst your bubbles, but the question was "how many have a faith" which, Grammatically speaking would imply religion.


I don't personally, because to have a religion, one must subscribe to the beliefs of said religion, whether one believes or not. I prefer to forge my own religous path.

I do not subscribe to any of the religious tenents out there. For me, religion is one big con job, albeit it the greatest con job ever perpetuated upon mankind, in whatever form it takes. Let's see, beleive in an all seeing, all powerful, all knowing omnicent being? Nah, I think I'll pass.

I do believe in pasta, strippers, beer (alcohol in all forms), pirates and midgets though. 8)

I have no "Religious" faith.


Wow, how hypocritical of you.

By the way, you can always edit your post instead of adding a new one, it is preferred by the moderators.

I also have a big, fat ath.

True, but in terms of utter pwnage, bubz_the_troll's avatar wins...

I mean, how can you beat that?

It's impossible!

EDIT: Srry, wrong page there.

What I should have said was; I believe this 'faith' issue has a bit more depth to it. For instance, there is religion as it is, and there is the philosophy behind it...

There is more than just one side to a triangle.

Then call it philosophy, not religion.
I mean, if it has tree side it's a triangle, if it has four than itsn't.

I personally am a MRI (Multiple Religious Identity). Discordian, Pastafarian, Unitarian Universalist, Taoist, Buddhist, Abrahamic faiths, etc.

I believe, and do not believe, every religion I come across. suspension of belief in reality works for more than TV and movies you know. Course, sadly, too many people allow it to run their real lives too.

Once again I find myself strongly agreeing with the guy posting above me.
