Religion and you

What religion are you? Why are you that religion? If you aren't religious, why is that? Were you raised religious but lost religion at some point? What cause you to lose religion? What religions have you experienced in your life and do you think they had any positive/negative effects on you?

Just wondering.

No religion, because my parents are atheists. We thank Richard Dawkins before every meal. Every Sunday we put on our best clothes and don't go anywhere.

Too many experiences/odd things happened in my life to think "God is dead", but yeah, christians and atheists are about equal lvls of obnoxious imo

agnostic i think


whichever is the one where you're certain that there is no God or afterlife but at the same time if you die and it turns out you're wrong after all, you're pretty glad about it

like, i really want to be able to believe there is an afterlife so i dont have to deal with that horrible "never having another sentient thought for eternity" thing, but i just know that there isnt an afterlife and it ****ing sux

My parents were christian and my catholic grandmother lived with us for years, but I wouldn't say I was raised religious and I'm not. Was never made to go to church and aside from stuff like "God works in mysterious ways" nobody really talked about how cool Jesus was so idk.

I don't see the point in religion. It is a waste of time I can spend on other things, and I do not particularly believe in a divine creator. My education and life experiences have cemented these believes.

Quote:

I was baptised but never practised religion, and was never made to practise or worship by my parents.

Quote:
What cause you to lose religion?


I can't ever remember having one.

Quote:

I had to go to Church sometimes for the Scouts. It was boring and even if I was Christian I don't think I'd participate in organised religion. It is stuffy, old fashioned and dull.

I was born roman-catholic. Why? Cause my mother is catholic. I personally don't practice. About being 'raised' religious, I was never raised religious despite my mom being hardcore catholic. I would associate myself as agnostic I guess.

Not religious. Atheist/agnostic/whatever.
Not really raised religious. Parents are mildly christian but extremely mild.
Never had any religion, never needed it and never believed in an invisible man in the sky.
Certainly don't need it now and it seems quite silly in more ways than one.

I was raised Catholic. Not the strictest kind of Catholicism, but church every Sunday, confession every month, Ash Wednesday, stuff like that. I'd been in religious education since elementary school. I started watching Bill Maher in 10th grade and from there became hardcore atheist. I was kicked out of my confirmation class towards the end of 10th grade for holding views that they didn't think were compatible with Catholicism (gay rights, abortion, birth control, etc...) I mean, I was in high school and had access to the internet and HBO. How was I not going to question my religion? My family sort of gave up being religious after that. It was mostly my mom who cared, anyway; my dad was not raised religious at all and never went to church with us. Fast forward a few years and I found myself struggling with severe depression. I ended up in the hospital for about a week and while I was there a very kind nun gave me a rosary. I found that it gave me great comfort and to this day I still say my prayers every night and usually fall asleep having a mental conversation with a God that I'm not 100% sure exists. I'm not really the type to have faith. I hope God exists, but I'm not sure and never will be. I don't go to Church but if praying makes me feel better, then hey, I'm gonna do it without being ashamed.

Atheist is you don't believe there is an afterlife/god. Agnostic is you believe there is no way to ever know for sure.

You are a regretful atheist

Raised Catholic. On again, off again. Spent like a year or so getting really into Catholicism. Pretty consistently atheist since 2009.

The reason why is a very boring, theological one dealing with Church history and papal bulls. That's what started it anyway. And once I started doubting the finer details, I began to step back and look at even the most basic doctrines like hypostatic union, virgin birth and the resurrection. Then you kinda wonder how you ever believed any of that in the first place, or if you ever really believed any of it.

Raised Lutheran, now Atheist. I used to care a lot more about it, but I'm mostly apathetic about religion these days in most cases that don't involve people killing others in the name of it.

whichever the one is that you believe there is "something" but are not sure what, and you don't care either.

Was raised Christian. Was never really into it, then started to identify as atheist when I was like 14-15. Kind of identify with Taoism now though, but more philosophically than religiously.
