1. USA 2. Agnostic 3. Because proof of any deity, or ominous being, does not exist, however I am willing to devote myself to a god if given proof of his existence. I want burning bushes, I want parted seas. Proof was supposedly given after the crucifixion, wheres the proof for me? 4. Playboy :) 5. My bathroom, and at least 3 times a day. 6. Whenever questions like these come along. 7. Everyday :) I do not have a "religion" but I do believe in the Buddhist way of life.. Do unto others as you'd have done to yourself. Karma is a wonderful thing. Ive been told I'm going to "hell" because of my lack of faith in "god", but just because I do not have faith in your god does not make me a bad person. I am more civil and kind hearted than some Christians like to think they are. So if you have any problem with my opinion, go find a brick wall, and tell it your problems because I don't care. I dont tell you that your religion is wrong. So don't tell me that not having one is wrong either.

1) India 2) Hindu (Monist) 3) I was born a Hindu and although I do not follow what my parents do, I found monism and mysticism highly appealing and sensible. 4) I do not follow any book per se; but I love to read the experiences of mystics in different parts of the world. 5) N/A 6) Often, but only when asked to. I do not like blowing my own (religion's) trumpet and claiming that I have the absolute truth with me and that all others are wrong. 7) My decisions are generally independent of my beliefs. And my beliefs are such that I do not follow any rigid rituals or anything; so it does not affect the decisions. In other words my beliefs are highly flexible. Hope it goes well with a great report!

Hello brooke! No problem. here's mine: 1 Philippines 2 Roman Catholic 3 Family (since my great,great, great,great grandparents on both sides) 4 Bible 5 Sundays but misses sometimes (There's also a Saturday mass on our village's gym so it's where we attend sometimes) 6 I share my belief when asked, when making a group decision can be solved with it, or when teaching young children. Why? Because i believe that people have their own choices and that no matter how much you want them to believe your religion and your God, it's only them who can decide.) 7 As often as posible. I know my religion doesn't harm anyone so living my life in accordance to its beliefs won't harm me. Especially if the situation is answerable by the 10 commandments, then I follow the commandments.

Hi Brooke, I hope this helps, below are my answers; 1. I live in the Philippines. 2. My religion is Roman Catholic 3. I was born and raised as a Roman Catholic 4. Holy Bible. 5. I seldom attend mass 6. I seldom share because discussions related to religion only end up in debate and don't have any resolution. 7. I always believe that my religion has taught me on what's right or wrong. I often consider god's pleasure when I decide but there are instances that it's purely for selfish reasons. Hope this helps. Cheers!

I will answer this and it will be different than most. Read on.... 1) What country do you live in? USA 2) What religion are you? (Please include atheist, agnostic or pagan) Truth, which is not in any of the religions available, businesses don't deal in truth. 3) Why are you this religion? (I.e. parents are, raised in this religion, etc...) Truth is the only way to live. I have nothing to explain, always say it straight. 4) What book of faith (if any) do you follow? (Holy bible, Catholic Bible, Watchtower, etc... If you don't read any please write N/A) I read them all for history, some have guidance, all together as one, you can find good things to help you through a day. 5) How often to you attend your place of worship? I feel each of us is a church within ourself if we truly believe in our own faith. So the answer would be constantly. 6) How often do you publically share your belief/religion with others? Why or why not? Anytime I can, not many like my idea that most religions are a business and only deal in their truth to keep you within their fold. Condeming others if they don't belong, that isn't right, we all were born the same to this earth, no one person is greater than another. We all are built the same, it is our choices in life, that brings circumstance that we live and learn. 7) Approximately, how often would you say your base your decisions making upon your religion/ beliefs? Always I hope this helps

Because I am not a big fan of organized religion 4. I read many spiritual books and journals, don't follow just any one 5. seldom 6. only when asked or having that disussion already. Because it's a loaded subject that rarely ends well. 7. Every day Good Luck, hope you get it all done in time to write a great report.

I hope this helps 1. Chile 2. Agnostic 3. Being agnostic means I don´t belong to any religion. My parents were atheists and my grandmother was catholic. 4. N/A 5. N/A 6. Only when prompted or when speaking about religions with other people 7. Never I´m not sure whether this kind of poll is against mylot´s rules. I answered only because it was for a class. But if it´s against the rules you will have your post deleted and you won´t earn from it. Still you will have the statistics. Happy posting!

Thank you for your answers! Honestly, I didn't even check MyLot rules about this. Nor was I concerned about the "payout" on this discussion. LOL....I honestly didn't think about it, until your post... :-0 I'm so desperate to pull this all together in 3 days, I didn't even think about those issues. I sure hope they don't delete. Cuz I need several more answers to get my stats report compiled! PLEASE DON'T MYLOT!!

1. I live in the United States of America 2. I am agnostic 3. I am agnostic because my mother tried raising me as a Jehovah's Witness, and I didn't like all of the rules I had to follow. I didn't want to switch religions, I just didn't want THAT religion. I also still believed in God, and Jesus. So I became agnostic. 4. N/A 5. N/A 6. Whenever someone asks me what I religion is. I don't go around declaring it to the public, but if someone new I meet wants to know I answer truthfully. 7. Since being agnostic means you really don't believe in any certain religion, but you believe in God, I don't really base my decisions on any religion-based rules. I follow my head and my heart, and do what I think is right. I hope I could help you out, and good luck with your report!

I think you already submitted your report :) 1. I am an Indian, sometime works abroad 2. I am a Muslim 3. I got the label 'Muslim' when I was born in Muslim family, but later I realized the truth from books, speeches, internet etc.. Now I'm a confident and practicing Muslim. Any truth seeker who read Quran can identify that it is not work of human. And it has many scientific and historic signs, which was detected by the science very lately, while Quran says it back 1400 years ago. Quran never contradict with established facts of science but goes hand in hand with established facts of science. So I believe in Quran.. the Last testament .. The last edition of the manual for humans from the creator of humans through the last prophet of God .. Prophet Mohammad. 4. Quran the basic proof, the practical demonstration and advices are given by prophet Mohammad, which are recorded as narrations, and it is called as 'Hadith' collections, which is the secondary proof. I read it with meanings frequently and I'm attending Quran learning classes weekly. 5. For the Congregational prayer, once in a Week, every Friday at the noon time. For daily prayer try to attend to nearby mosques five times a day, or I will pray from where I am, i.e from house or office etc. 6. I used to share it in internet sites like Mylot, also with friends when such a situation comes and to those who ask about it. 7. I always try to adhere to my belief in most aspects of my life. May Almighty God guide us all to the right path. Peace.
