Humanism really shouldn't be on the poll. It's an additional social set of conduct, along with political beliefs, not a religion, but it's members are Atheist.

Sorry, mate, you're not right. Some examples of flaming and spamming in religious thread:

Religion
Pope John Paul the II

LIES. The Religion thread died on its own; it wasn't closed. It was only closed later after I posted my "The Great Flood" paper.
And the Pope thread was about... the Pope, not religion.

Whats an agnostic
Agnosticism isn't really a religion, it's a philosophy (as is buddhism, if I'm not mistaken, by the way :P )

In short, and quite generalised, an agnost believes that one can't know for certain whether a higher power exists, and what form such a higher power takes if it does exist.

I'm a convinced agnost, and my views are a bit broader then the general agnostic view. I've spend a lot of time thinking and discussing religion with people of all kinds of religious backgrounds and various different convictions, and I have my own thoughts, ideas and theories, but I'm not locked in them or convinced. I strive to keep an open mind. I believe it certainly matters what one believes, no matter what it is what he she believes.

Apparantly, on checking around a bit, it seems that makes me an Agnostic spiritualist

This is my last post about this ''misunderstanding'' with you because I don't want to spam or go off-topic anymore.

So...Read the topics. Both topics contain intense flaming and spamming, and that's a fact you cannot deny. Members asked for ''Religion'' thread to be closed a few times because of abovementioned reasons, it was closed and reopened again. And how in the world can you say that Pope discussion isn't a religious one. If Pope isn't connected with religion, what in the world is?!

Enough off-topicness, if you want to pursue this discussion further, feel free to PM me. Let's not destroy another topic.

I'm a Stoic. A passionate Stoic. Which seems like it wouldn't work, but it does.
