such a knob...you want to do poll but can't remember one of the religions. And if you have read anything on this forum, do really think it is such a good idea to do this particular poll????

Well, I'm glad for you. Seems that you have never made any mistake.

Sorry for that, I wrote it before but seems that I have erase the bad one, you can't put as many poll options as you want ...
As I can't edit, if someone can, should be good..

And what I have seen on this forum, is that people are not ashamed of their beliefs, and that many religions are represented.
And as a poll is anonymous, I think it won't be a problem for anybody...

you can edit your post as such Sved, then just edit and add the other reliogion as wished, no prob.

I voted, I feel buddhism as a lifestyle more than a religion that fits me and my thoughts.

I can edit the message, but not the poll ...
In a way, it should be normal not to be able to change it when it has begun...

Well, I follow Hinduism because I was born a Hindu and to me its a way of life. I don't have to do anything special to be a Hindu, good or bad... suits me just fine. :D
Haven't ever thought of religion that hard to even think of changing my religion, better to focus on being a decent human being instead...
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

If you're interested in religious stats, this site is pretty comprehensive and well researched (including lots of religions you've probably never heard of):

i'm a free thinker and i absolutely don't believe in any religion.. no offense, but i really don't like religions.. hee... BUT i do like their ideologies though... i study all and practise none.. :lol: :lol:

Actually Buddhism and Confusian are philosophies... but they evolved into religions..
I'm so stupid that I surprise myself sometimes...

Well, basically it means you have no specific religion. but it is a very general term.. Some believe in the sancticity of religion and some don't believe in religion at all.. some that i know of think religion is a waste of time... :lol:

Argh!! lets just say they don't believe in anything!!
