      I have no affiliation; an atheist.

      EDIT: The poll isn't working!

      If you get the poll working, be sure to stick Naturalistic Pantheism in there so I can vote

      You merely have to change your point of view slightly, and then that glass will sparkle when it reflects the light.

      I am a Deist; I dont really know what I need to specify. If you want to know about Deism read Thomas Paine's Age of Reason.

      People seem to like to break up general terms like "Atheism" "Pantheism" "Christianity" into different sections etc... I just put that there for good measure

      I went ahead and voted atheist, though in reality I'm more of an agnostic nontheist. I don't actively reject the idea that there is some sort of deity, but if there is a deity I believe that it is not a personal one, and thus there is no point in really contemplating about it.

      I voted apathetic. Technically I'd say I'm an atheist, but I can't really claim it to be a researched and contemplated standpoint. It's more of a "Yea, that sounds about right" feeling, with little incentive to do real research on any philosophies or religions. (Unless watching Internet 'debates' counts as research ) Kinda waiting for the time where that will start bugging me.

      atheist, but 99.99% unsure about everything. The last 0.01% is what I think I know.

      Apathetic. None of these "fundamental questions about life" really matter to me anymore. If there even is objective truth I've submitted to the fact that its beyond us and far greater than myself. I used to think about these things all the time, but I've found it just distracts me from more productive activities I could be doing in this short window of time we have here.

      100% unsure about everything I perceive, and 100% uninterested either way.

      What a boring, unsatisfactory life you must lead, not caring about anything and being completely unsure about everything.

      Jehovah's Witness, though I am currently disfellowshipped (not a recognized member of the congregation until I straighten my life out).

      Atheist. I believe in God about like I believe in the Great Pumpkin. Technically, though, I think there is a higher likelihood that the Great Pumpkin exists than there is that God exists.

      Noooo! You must not say that. I love when atheists are very rational thinkers - in which case you'd have to say something like you think the probability of there being no god is 99.999999%.

      There is as much reason to suppose the existence of god as there is the flying spaghetti monster once you get out all of the superstitious cultural ideas around it. Hell, the FSM is actually more likely, since he makes no illogical claims, is bound by similar universal laws, and spaghetti is an observed state of matter.

      Well, if you're conceiving of a benevolent God, for instance, you can be 100% of his nonexistence, due to the indisputable empirical evidence for the fact that shit happens.

      OR...are we just perceiving shit to happen? Everything that has ever happened in the history of the universe has followed a certain set of rules...never failing: the laws of physics. Its much more likely that humans, through our retarded sense of the consequences of our actions, in other words our myopia, and the fact that we only use a fraction of our brainpower, not to mention the power of the mind, have misconceived the universe to be inherently evil.

      Actually I have faith in my abilities to make the rational judgement that entities such as the smallpox virus are bad things.

      But thats only your perception. Yeah, they are bad to the human race, because they kill us. But they are only participating in what every form of life does, which is to kill or be killed; reproduce or die. Thats not to say that I think the smallpox viruses have rights or anything, or that im going to go start a new group called PETV, or people for the ethical treatment of viruses

      Im just trying to get people to look at this objectively.

      Besides I said god in general, not being specific. A big man thing in the sky.
