No religion.

Why not? Because if there was a god, he surely would have smited my ass long ago! It just doesn't make sense for him/her to keep a guy like me running around in the world! :D :p

Oh Veh, of course it makes sense - you give everyone else someone to look down on :p :D

No religion, because I don't have a reason to believe in a god...

What about you, Garcia?
Who, me?!?

Well I have no religion. I am born and raised in Denmark that consists of a majority of Christians (Protestants) like 90% or so.
Religion goes against all that is logic to me if I can see it and touch it I believe in it. That people have a religion I can fully understand it is a sanctuary and a place to seek comfort and for some that are looking for answers can find it here (just not my opinion that it is the right one) I believe in science (not blindly of course)
Religion is a good thing if we don't bring in the countless wars it has dragged people into since the first dawn, I just don't have the need for it.
I believe that people are not meant to understand everything. Things like death, the universe (and women? :D ) therefor what religion gives is an answer but it is just not the right one for me. I don't believe in god, the devil or faith I believe in coincidence and random events everything has a logic explanation it may just not be so obvious.
People with a religion strong or weak this is not an offence just my point of view and I fully understand people with religion.

Atheist, reason? because god doesn't exist and even if he/she does I can't see any point in worshiping him/her
Just remember, everyone is entitled to my opinion

Garcia *Well I have no religion. I am born and raised in Denmark that consists of a majority of Christians (Protestants) like 90% or so.*

i know a little bit about denmark and dont think this is acurate. probably less rhan 3% attend church. The number of belivers is probably higher but not 90.

I, (dare I say it?), am a Christian. I'm saying that because I do believe what the Bible teaches, and I believe that it can be supported from a logical standpoint. However, I also know (from experience) that we could argue the existence of God, the logic of any religion, and never come to the same conclusion.

For what it's worth....

Roman Catholic.

Many people on this board seem to lack an organized religion. For your education therefore, here is a list of what I like to do on weekends:

Saturday:

1. First thing in the morning: Go downtown and beat everyone over the head with a BIG wooden rosary, whilst screaming that they will all burn in hell should they refuse to convert. For added effect, I installed a small electric charge into the large beads :D

2. Lunch Hour: Hit the Barnes & Noble. Buy up all copies of holy books of other religions, such as the Koran and the teachings of Buddha. Go downtown, make a big pile of these books, and burn them, laughing gleefully. TEE-HEE!!!

3. Evening: My favorite part of the day. Burning Hour!! Saturday nights it's usually a Wiccan, and atheist, or an agnostic. We save the Muslims and Jews for Sundays. Before we burn them at the stake though, we torture them and drink their blood. Sometimes, if it's a very special occasion, I wear my Nazi uniform. (The black one, not the brown one.)

Sunday:

1. First thing in the morning: Of course, I go to Mass. In Latin, of course. The priest comes down the aisle and beats us all with a big wooden rosary. Walnut. Hurts like...well, you know.

2. Lunch Hour: Bible study. We always read the passages where it condemns everyone to Hell. Those are our favorite. What?...what do you mean there aren't any such passages?!?! We wrote them in ourselves.

3. Evening: Burning Hour again!! :D Like I said, on Sundays it's usually Jews or Muslims. Sometimes a few of both!!! We bring the kids and the old folks and have a picnic. It's a grand old time. Last Sunday I brought the matches.

But I think what I enjoy most about being a Catholic is being repressed and miserable. There's nothing like not living life to the fullest. I mean, who wants to enjoy things? I would hate that.
