    I guess out of the options shown I would fall under that category, mine is more spiritual than earth based, but it definately isn't buhdaism.

    I usually categorise myself as agnostic and previously was amused by those steadfastly championing any of the other options blindly, thinking I was right, agnosticism is the only way to go given that no evidence that God exists exists but there is a possibility that God could exist.

    I have since realised I've been doing exactly what I found contemptible in those that champion a religion or atheism - believing agnosticism to be 'right' and everyone thinking otherwise is wrong. It seems to be a illogical situation where I don't want to claim anyone's beliefs are wrong, but also don't want to claim that mine are definitely right. So, I think I'm trying to say I am a kind of agnostic agnostic, if there is such a thing.

    Ive been wondering what Agnostic was. And ive been finding that there is a lot in christianity that cannot be accounted for. I totally agree. Its by my family background that im Catholic (my mother is form Spain) but my dad is the same as me.

    Athiest is sure there is no god and the agnostic doesn't deny the existance but doesn't think it can be proven
    Hits the nail on the head with regards to agnosticism.....

    Well I was trying to get across that I don't want to discount any of the religions or belief systems at all, as I believe its arrogant and close-minded to do so; I probably didn't come across well, it is late after all.
    No thats what i thought you meant.

    Even having said that, its hard to shake the notion that this is the 'right' opinion! Perhaps thats just the nature of opinions one has arrived at through logical thought; it seems difficult to hold a definite opinion while at the same time thinking it might be wrong.
    Its true, but as you said, who has the 'right' opinion anyway? And everyone will continue to argue about it. I think the best thing we can do is respect everyones opinion, (as we already do). I myself believe the logical things thats why i find some opints of chrisitanity unbelieveable. But thats just me. I mean i fully support others faith, and i admire them that they have such a passion for it.

    While I respect an individual's faiths I don't particularly like the idea of pushing ideas/religions/faiths onto another. Surely a better system would to be to allow every individual to find the right faith for them themselves.

    Which is why I dont agree wiht religion in schools, either teach every religion or none at all.

    I agree, ideally it would be optional though. Also, I can think of a few subjects more important than religion to teach to children, their time at school is short!
    Sure is. Anyway, im going for a little shop-shop now, See ya!

    Paganism is an term which covers many different types of religions such as wicca and shamanism. Paganism is an umbrella term just a christianity covers c of E catholic Baptist ect.
    The deffinition that I found on the internet is

    A Pagan or NeoPagan is someone who self-identifies as a Pagan, and whose spiritual or religious practice or belief fits into one or more of the following categories:
    Honoring, revering, or worshipping a Deity or Deities found in pre-Christian, classical, aboriginal, or tribal mythology; and/or
    Practicing religion or spirituality based upon shamanism, shamanic, or magical practices; and/or
    Creating new religion based on past Pagan religions and/or futuristic views of society, community, and/or ecology; and/or
    Focusing religious or spiritual attention primarily on the Divine Feminine.
