I suppose that I am agnostic, but I do follow Buddhism as a philosophy. I was technically raised in a non practicing Catholic household but my parents were quite interested in Buddhism and we practiced that more instead. What I like about Buddhism is that there is no god or worshipping involved and so I don't practice it as a religion as much as a sort of spirituality and moral code.

Agnostic. I personally like Buddhism because there is no god to worship in that religion. I think that atheism is more about denial while agnosticism is more about uncertainty.

You can be an atheist without certainty.

I would consider myself an agnostic atheist, then. I know there are some people I like who do follow a theist religion, though, so I generally don't mention my lack of faith in a Supreme Being around them unless I really trust them.

I have yet to know someone who is not:

1) religious to a varied degree
2) identifies himself as belonging to a known religion while being secular (non-practicing, etc.)
3) uses a substitute for religion to describe self (atheism, communism, anarchism)

Even if you don't believe in god (and I personally don't) you have to have some sort of identity, we all want to feel a part of something, a community, etc.

Personally I belong to the 2nd group

Athiest, via studying and discovering that no one is less than nothing. And religion requires one to accept a position of less than something that is immeasurable, without beginning or end, .aka nothing.. I was raised Bahai, but I couldn't officially sign on at age 15. I apparently ask to many questions, plus I think Shogi Effendi is a infertile dope, ("science and religion go hand in hand", is literally a testament to a complete lack of understanding what science is to begin with) He pretty much ruined shitte. If people can't understand where a covenant breaker is coming from in such a small religion they deserve to be split and marginalized even further.

I'm Christian. I went to church quite a bit when I was younger. I am very accepting though. I am bisexual myself. I'm not really supposed to talk about religion a lot though because I have religious delusions apparently. I am the only one in my family right now who labels themselves as any religion. They don't really go to church anymore
