What is your religion?

What's your religion? I'm just curious. This isn't a thread to debate religion or philosophies, I'm just curious about the distribution of beliefs we have on our board.

I tried to include most major religions, if I forgot one I apologize in advance.

Due to the large numbers of Christians and Muslims, I broke those down in to larger subcategories. I also tried to organism them by number of adherants, so please don't think I think less of the religions near the bottom

Thanks!

Deists believe basically that a supreme being created the universe and gave us free will... then stopped influencing us. Basically that "God" created us and has left us alone since.

Martinaist, I practice Martinaism.

Oh, out of the choices, atheism seems like a good enough religion to be in

I was also a Baha'i for most of my life... but I have some issues with a few of their teachings. I would still think the Baha'i Faith has some influence on me though.

I said agnostic - I kind of can't beleive anything that I don't see any proof of, but i don't deny that there may be something that exists that put us here - so thats the closest thing to what I am I think.

I've always had problems being taught something that was claimed to be the absolute truth, where no one could give me sufficient evidence to beleive that.
