So, I thought this would make for an interesting poll...

It is too annoying to classify everything as "not quite a religion" or "only a philosophical belief." For the sake of making things easier for everyone, I just asked what religion the Pit was... I'm sorry that some of you are not capable of handling this.

Well, it deals with the existence of a deity, so it's only right to put it in the poll.

Deism is not a religion


What you should have done is left atheism and agnosticism off the list and instead had a "No religion" option.

i don't have religion only beliefs. i lean more towards norse mythology though. where i go to valhalla if i die in battle and i go to hell if i'm a pussy. **** yeah. i believe in god. i just call him god. he kicked all the other gods asses and doesnt answer prayers because we need to rely on ourselves on not be such a pussy. btw i'm actually really chill, but kick ass when its necessary.

It is a religious belief.

Everyone stop nitpicking about what is and isn't a religion. It's too complicated to call it a belief in the existence (or not) of a higher power (or something maybe like that...)... Kthx.

It's no more a religion than Stalinism or Social Conservativism are. Sorry if I'm 'nitpicking', but you are only propagating a common misconception that I get really sick of hearing.

Well, while we're at it, Buddhism and Atheism aren't religions either, but they're on the poll.

It would probably be easier for this thread to just be about beliefs/philosophies. Religion is a bit of a narrow field.

I never said it was a religion... It's simply a philosophical belief regarding higher power/the creation of the universe, etc. I'm not propagating any misconception...

Buddhism is a religion by definition, even if it lacks a diety (although some branches of Buddhism do worship Siddhatta as a god).

I don't think that analogy is entirely valid - the difference is that Stalinism and Social Conservatism make no claims about the existence of a deity/higher power. Deism probably isn't a "religion" in the sense that most people understand the word, but I would argue that it's certainly related to religion, philosophically speaking. Just because we don't organize or practice rituals doesn't mean we have "no religion" per se.

For those who haven't already inferred it, I'm deistic, though I claim agnosticism on lesser theological issues like sin and the afterlife.

idk, I have enough shit to worry about that I don't have to make believe there is a fairy god mother in the sky counting how many spankings I've earned.
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

Yeah, so don't get mad at me about the poll!! Haha

If the poll was "what color hair do you have?", what would a bald person put if there wasn't a bald option?! Haha

On second thought, being pedantic isn't really accomplishing anything. Let's call all claims about deities and/or the lack thereof "religious beliefs" for the sake of convenience.
