    The Holiday trappings of a generic, low-pressure WASP youth. Marry Catholics, but won't convert. Kids raised Catholic for the structure and the social/historical perspective (they flee as early as they can.) My youngest helped me come out as a full-blown Atheist when she was 11 - I owe that to her.

    Religion provides a lot of good moral guidance. Supernatural or not is up to the reader. I can respect either opinion.

    Same; 0.0/ It's the root of all evil and a blatant money grab for the uneducated.

    You come up with the best threads. Tasteful, too. I mean, I don't see you creating anal sex or porn threads (what kind of perv would do that?)

    It's all fucked up. Future reward if you do such and such. I am pissed I was raised by nuns and priests and I am still brainwashed to a certain degree.

    Believe in some kind of universal force (God force if you will) that is somehow related to electricity. Electricity can kill you, and in some situations, bring you back to life.

    Religion is politics, pure and simple. Mine is better than yours (or more precisely mine is real and yours is not) so we have to go to war.

    Edit: Was raised Baptist, by the way. Hillbilly parents.

    I was raised Catholic and have my problems with the church.
    I'm non practicing now but I do enjoy the traditions when I do go to church.
    It makes me feel hopeful in some way.
    I'm not going to bash someone for their beliefs just like I won't bash you for NOT believing.

    Raised very reform Jewish (we had a Christmas tree with a Jewish star on top; Santa wore a yarmulke, etc. in order to assimilate), never bat mitzvahed, no Hebrew school after age 4. And yet, the cultural pull of Judaism has had huge effect on my life, and I vacillate between embracing it and abandoning it daily.

    In other words, I'm a neurotic Jewess, and the Shed benefits :)

    Is this a trick question?

    Religion has nothing to do with faith.

    Me a philosophical person, not religious but raised a Catholic.
    Suppose a race of people like ours survived and are evolved a milllion years beyond us.
    They would have the power and abilities of gods compared to us.
    They are undoubtedly out there in our infinite universe.
