    i would say that im not religeouse at all...i cant even spell it. anywhooo, i did go through all the requirements or whatever its called to be an adult in the catholic church like communion, conformation, baptism, all that jazz. I went to sunday school for about 9 years also. still i never really thought of myself as someone who believed all the beliefs and stories or even a higher being. my family is somewhat religouse, we say prayers sometimes before dinner, we times go to church (usually on a holiday).

    personally, if used correctly, i belive religeon does lots of great things for people. gives them hope when times are tough, lets them take a step back and see things in the bigger picture. Also alot of the morals coming from all types of religeon i feel. it kinda sucks though when people do good things just for their relegieon and not becuase its what a good person would do.

    I think religion can do good things for people....though I don't think we should aim for more religious societies. Hope is a nice thing, though it itself doesn't change the world for the better. You know like in the serpents pass episode of avatar the last airbender....Aang says the monks used to say hope was nothing but a distraction. I don't know if I think it's good that religion is used to distract people from the real world, by sugar coating reality, though reality can suck hard so it's understandable.

    I think the only thing religion can give that anything else doesn't give is hope, because it relies so heavily on faith. Though all the other good stuff like morals and feeling included in a group, that can all be obtained without religion.

    At the rate of things religion is slowly dying catblood

    The poll asks for us to vote either "extremely," "somewhat" or "not at all."  It's important to note that you can have extremely strong faith, but not be an EXTREMIST.  distho
