POLL RESULTS: (a) Theist = 28% (b) Agnostic = 12% (c) Atheist = 46% (d) Other = 14%

THE RESULTS: OUT OF 67 REPLIES:
19 CHOSE 'A' (28%)
8 CHOSE 'B' (12%)
31 CHOSE 'C' (46%)
9 CHOSE 'D' (OR SOMETHING THAT SUGGESTED 'OTHER' - E.G. #6,#38,#71) (14%)

I HAVE ROUNDED UP OR DOWN THE PERCENTAGES AND ADDED THE REMAINING 1% TO THE 'D' CATEGORY.

Since this has come up in a few threads I thought a poll would be interesting, especially as facts and figures have been bandied about already. Let's use our own membership to conduct a random sample. All you need to do is type a, b, c, d and/or anything else you want. After the thread has died, or one week later (whichever is soonest) I will count and publish the results.

Definitions are notoriously difficult, so let's work with these to ensure we are starting from the same basic ideas (of course feel free to resist or amend definitions in your post):

(a) Theist: One who believes in the existence of a god or gods (or God)
(b) Agnostic: One who claims not to know or to be unable to know if a god exists
(c) Atheist: One who denies the existence of a god based on lack of evidence
(d) Other: [ let us know if you would use none of the labels above to categorise yourself ]

NOTE: THE POLL HAS NOW CLOSED

I don't believe in heaven, hell, god etc. But I would like to believe there is some sort of "life" after death. But if this becomes true, does that mean that this life is "fake" and any other after it, if you are infact able to life on after "this" death

D). I class myself as a Bright. That is to say:
[LIST]
[*]A bright is a person who has a naturalistic worldview
[*]A bright's worldview is free of supernatural and mystical elements
[*]The ethics and actions of a bright are based on a naturalistic worldview[/LIST]See www.the-brights.net for more info.

Incidentally, I think you meant Theist rather than Thesist. It's also a little unfair that you've missed out all of the Deists out there.

Observation:
Have you noticed that the only people who make "comments" are those who are attempting to bash those with faith. IMHO this is to make themselves feel better about themselves. Guilty Conscience much?

By posting this, haven't you made a comment yourself? Did you do it to 'bash those with faith'? Do you 'feel better about' yourself now? Do you have a 'guilty conscience'?

Just asking.

Nope! I haven't noticed that. Some people such as myself have expressed their own beliefs or lack thereof, but there's been no faith bashing at all. What people do or do not believe is entirely their own business, and they should not be criticised if they choose to share.

Anyway, let's keep to the poll and not get too off track.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. Not in this thread particulary, but I have noticed it in every day life more and more that people start to get agitated by those who believe in God. Which is odd considering this country used to be known for its strong Christian beliefs. I had a nasty encounter today which made me want to vent a little.
And yes dp1503 the sword cuts both ways - maybe I should just keep my mouth shut lol. Not my intention to make trouble :)

I am me, thats it, whatever i believe or not believe doesnt change who i am, only two things are for sure and that is we are born and we will die
#38
C for me
#39
C

But not only because of lack of evidence; also because of weight of evidence against the teachings of some As. And logic.
As you say, definitions are very difficult - perhaps just leave out the words 'based on lack of evidence'.

I think some of my previous posts say my answer!!!
