G. I am a non-theist. The idea of a higher realm/being (theos) has no meaning--anything that is knowable to a human is, by definition, part of the human realm. Whether the human realm is exclusively governed by the laws of science or not is an open question. This point of view neither negates nor confirms religious belief.

Heh heh heh what an eloquent way of saying you refuse to take sides in the god debate.

Alright, here is the first tally for those interested. Please note, if you said "Mostly X with a little bit of Y" then I marked you as X. If you said "Between X and Y" then I assumed that you are 50% of each and so I marked you in the X-Y catagory. If you said "I vary between X, Y, and Z" then I put you in Y. If you said something beyond the A to F catagories I marked you as Other.Those G and X descriptions are weak at best, nothing more than Atheists in fancy sweater-vests if you ask me. I guess they are trying to be unique and beautiful snowflakes.

Anyway. I'll update and confirm the count in a few pages.

A = Traditionally Religious (4)
A - B = Traditional/Moderate (4)
B = Moderately Religious (3)
B - C = Moderate/Spiritual (0)
C = Spiritual Person (3)
C - D = Spiritual/Believer (1)
D = Believer in Something (4)
D - E = Believer/Agnostic (0)
E = Agnotic Outlook (4)
E - F = Agnostic/Atheist (5)
F = Atheist Confirmed (5)
Other (3)

Over all there seem to be less moderate or middle road types in Genmay, we are either traditional and devout or else Agnotics and Atheists, with a slight leaning toward the low end of the spectrum.

I was gonna just say A, but this almost perfectly describes me so I'll quote it.

Mix of C and D with some E thrown in for good measure.

I'm agnostic but I have certain beliefs about what God would and wouldn't be like if it did exist, I question the notion of an "afterlife", and I consider all revealed religions to be works of man. Though there may be some good morals in the stories contained in religious text I believe in recognizing goodness and morality logically not through supposed divine proclamation. I believe that attempting to be good and moral is logical because it benefits everyone, not because some imaginary being is keeping score. I believe that life is our gift and we should enjoy it because it is most likely all we will ever get.

I think it's that we almost all have clearly-defined perspectives on the world. We know what we believe and have little doubt in our faith (or lack thereof). That and the C-D and D-E mixes aren't going to be popular, as one essentially contradicts the other. If you remove those two you see a more even distribution.
