How much of the fanbase is Christian?

Just what the title says. If you want to say "This is a stupid thread, and I'm an Aetheist just so ya know" or anything of the sort, please don't. If you are, just submit you name and use the poll!

I am!

Well, we had a "How much of the fanbase is Canadian?" thread, and I didn't complain or even make the slightest deal about it. Also, I'm atheist and I would like to tell you that I' am not against this thread, I don't think it's stupid, and, most likely, not all atheists will.

I know. I just said that to (hopefully) prevent the God Vs. Atheism debate from springing up here. Let's see if Ducky someone gets the hint.

Ouch, man. I think that's slightly insulting to Ducky's intelligence.

That's very disrespectful to him; you should have just said you didn't want a debate about religion and left is at that, no need to mention names.

Bugfartboy doe tend to step on a few toes. Hopefully he'll discover the meaning of 'tact' soon enough.

I'm an athiest, and proud. Despite attempting to tolerate religion as a personal choice, I am still sometimes infuriated by it's blindness and obstinacy, which is often passed to it's followers.

I am also an atheist; to be precise, an atheistic agnostic. I mean, can we ever truly know for sure, if we're not willing to listen to writings that are thousands of years old, and, with all honesty, could have been written down by anyone?

I apologize for bringing the debate up in too many places. 'What's your Religion' and a couple of others got contaminated.
But it might help if Bug didn't insist that I'm going to Hell on a regular basis, along with everyone else who doesn't belive. Sure, believe it; that's good that you have something you believe in so strongly. I do too.

Just don't tell me I'm going to burn, and I won't tell you you're wrong.  :)

*insert hour long you're all going to ___ speech* and that's why we listen to *insert another hour* so make sure you *one day later* now go, and *insert hour long good by*

*insert hour long "your wrong" speech*

now that that's been dealt with, I agree that we can never be sure if there is a god, or what it even is.  For all we know "god" could be a parasite (stargate)  or it could be a being from another dimension (my story) or it could be an alien (???)  Christianity is simply politics and propaganda.  Just like nearly all true religions (mainly Scientology. but pre-reformation Catholicism, certain branches of Islam and many other religions do it too.)

But i like many others do believe there is something out there.  The closest I can get to a set of beliefs is deism though.
