    Like I said, no grasp on the English language.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I thought Evangelical by definition meant Protestant. Isn't that the case? If so, why did you say 'Other'?

    I think multiple votes should have been allowed. I'm an atheist and a Buddhist. No contradiction in that. My tuppence on the ahteist/agnostic issue is that I'm an atheist because I do not believe in the existence of a god; that doesn't mean I believe there is no god. I guess I'm an agnostic atheist Buddhist.

    Atheism is not, in and of itself, a belief. Atheist is the lack of a belief in "god." I'd bet this entire forum is atheist for almost every god except maybe one or two. (Do we have any Hindus? There's a vague line,too, with deities, avatars, etc.)

    I sympathize. When prompted for a religious identification I'll reflexively answer Jewish, but I'm a non-believer.

    Sherman, as an atheist I've always counseled folks that if you need a doctor or lawyer get a Jew.

    You can't be an atheist for specific Gods ... you are either a theist, or an atheist OR agnostic. A theist means you believe there IS NO GOD ....

    Take the eye thing, I don't BELIEVE you have blue eyes, but I don't not believe it either ... I DON'T KNOW, I withhold judgement, that's agnostic.

    If you withhold judgement, you are not saying Atheism i.e. NO god, you are saying agnostic, I don't know.

    Re: Debate Politics Religion Census

    I have a functional concept of a god, but it's not supernatural or metaphysical; it's not eternal, personal, or omniscient; it has no voice, no form, no opinions or emotions. It's just the sum of all things. All matter, space, time and energy. In short, it's the unfolding universe. I don't worship it, flatter it, chant to it, supplicate myself to it, kneel before it, or wear special hats to remind me of it. I have this concept so I can pray, and I do that just because I'm not good at meditating, but I think it's useful.

    All of that being the case, I call myself an atheist even though I have a concept I call god and I pray at it. The prayer is just a substitute for meditation.
