Religion

Here is a simple pole - what is your religion? This is basically a census, but if you'd like to discuss religion, this thread would probably a good place to do so.

UPDATE: Non-religious means non-religious in general.

It's because I accidentally had multiple choice, but it's not worth updating it.

I had thought on making a thread like this. I decided not to do it fearing I could cause controversy. Looks like that wouldn't have happened.

This hasn't gone on for long, Paulus.

Just wondering, Ned, what did you mean by "Fundamentalist" Catholic?

As in, considering yourself to be "fundamentalist" (No one really is).

No Satanists yet... dang it lol

It is debatable whether Confucianism is a religion as opposed to a philosophy. Most Chinese people do not consider Confucius to be a deity, merely an important historical figure like Plato or Socrates. Many sources (mostly Western) refer to Confucianism as a religion, to the ire of many Chinese. Just a disclaimer, I'm not hating on you, just being nit picky :P

How is non-religious separate from agnosticism and atheism in this case? I selected agnostic, but I am therefore non-religious.

Are we voting based on our personal religion or the religion of our nations?

Traditionally in China, and probably many other East Asian countries, religion isn't as well defined as they are in the west. Most modern western religions have their own deity/deities to be believed in exclusively, have a set of canon religious texts, etc. In China, there are various philosophies, often accompanied by a set of myths and spiritual beliefs, all mixed in with traditional beliefs.

As for Confucianism, it leans towards the more purely philosophical. Despite this, there are many Confucian shrines, though this could be seen simply as a manifestation of respect for a great elder. Confucianism does though encourage the follower to respect unspecified god/gods/heaven; it does not however define or describe it, believing that not having fully understood the physical world, they could not hope to understand the divine. Probably, this god could be assumed to be the ones of the traditional Chinese religion, or whichever god the Confucian follower worshiped.
