Default What religion are you?

Simple? What do you believe? :)

In this thread, please don't attack or slate people for being a certain religion. Explain why you believe a certain religion and move on.

As for me, I'm an atheist. The existence of a benevolent, omnipotent and omniscient God doesn't seem logical to me.

EDIT: The religions listed are just what I thought of off of the top of my head. I apologise if I missed your religion out. :)

I'm an atheist. I have my reasons, and they're of no concern to others. I'm not like the stereotypical satan worshipping, cat killing, moralfree atheist. I beleive in equal tolerance for all races, sexes, ages, etc.. I have morals (albeit not the same as people who have a religion) and while I dislike cats I would never dream of killing one.

I'm Catholic (answered Christian, obviously). I was raised Catholic, and everything just makes sense to me, unlike what I have heard from people who are other religions.

This is going to sound weird. But my Religion is Australian Rules Football. I worship a player named Bredon GODdard. Everything I do in my life is towards Aussie Rules and to me, it's not just a sport.

Atheism isn't a religion, but I identify as an atheist and an anti-theist.

Also, there is no such thing as a "stereotypical satan worshipping, cat killing, moralfree atheist".

None of the above. As an agnostic I have no religion and no religious beliefs, and thus have no answer.

I am Christian.

As a side note, I always find it depressing when people explain why they turned atheist, and the reason is "Someone in my old religion was so nasty/overbearing/preachy that I turned." Why are we letting our views on a higher power change because of the idiotic actions of humans? (Of course, I'm not saying that this is the only reason people become atheists, but I did read a thread like this on a different site, and almost every atheist posting cited that as their reason.)

Well, I became a semi-atheist because I realized how incredibly illogical it is to say you believe something exists when there is nothing saying it does.
