    I, personally, am an agnostic because A. I realized that the Christian stories I was raised with made no more sense than the Norse and Greek "Mythologies" and B. I don't feel like humanity is capable of understanding whatever supernatural force, if any, exists; if we can't stop killing each other, how can we expect to understand the nature of the universe? And C. almost all religions teach peace, yet they seem incapable of co-existing, and therefore, I have a problem with organized religion.

    I have no religious affiliation at all. I would probably list atheist, but it's not a religion.

    Yes, Evolution does not stretches all the way to the Big Bang. I thought the question was meant with a more worldly focus. Getting back here though, on ground, evolution explains so much as to even stretch to human behavior, perception, cognition, etc. It is a special branch in psychology named Evolutionary Psychology:

    I'm an atheist. It's simpler.

    Re: What is your religious denomination?

    I voted Agnostic.

    I was raised protestant/Presbyterian - went to a Quaker-ish middle and high school.
    (funny side note - I was introduced to marijuana by a friend on a church retreat/camping trip)

    I completely enjoy, and identify a lot with Taoism now.

    Re: What is your religious denomination?

    The responses here support my opinion that society is losing some values due to the number who are losing faith. So many are saying "I was raised this way, but I don't believe in it." I find that quite a shame.

    Re: What is your religious denomination?

    I was baptized Protestant and went to Sunday school and church probably a handful of times. I believe in God and the teachings of Christ, but I don't believe in or follow any man-made religions.

    Re: What is your religious denomination?

    Was baptized but grew up as an agnostic/atheist. A couple of years ago, certain experiences caused me to question this view. Now I am Baha'i.

    Re: What is your religious denomination?

    Christian atheist. Christian because I was born and raised in France and Christianity is all over the place; so if I was forced to choose a religion, I would unwillingly pick Christianity. But in truth, I tell you, I will remain an atheist - so help me god.
