You do know that God is seeing other people though (I guess you are OK with that).

This I don't get. Everything that happens is part of gods plan? Are the choices you make not really made by you, but by god?
Sinse you have full trust in Gods plan for you... why woud you be angry wit God when everthang dont go the way you'd like.???
It's a heat of the moment thing. I mainly get upset when my football team loses, and He gets the brunt of it, so trivial and childish I guess.
Do you thank God is oK wit you bein childish like that.???
I'm pretty sure He understands.
Is ther any sins that you comit that God ant cool wit.???
Yes, and I know when, I get a sunken heart feeling if I do something wrong, but God is cool full stop.
I'm probably harder on myself then God is, I repent.
I identify as a Pagan reconstructionist. The right to freely practise neopaganism is legally protected in many countries, including my own. So I'd say that counts as a "recognized religion".
I believe in a broadly hard polytheistic theology. I was an atheist previously, but I had personal experiences that convinced me that there are many gods.
I believe that individuals posses a spirit of life-force, and that this lives on in some form after physical death. I believe in reincarnation, but I don't necessarily think it's automatic.
Im NACA so me an you perty much have the same beliefs;;; i also figer that God is cool wit my sins... but im also cool wit my sins/definitely not hard on myself... cause God wants me to be hapy.!!!
I am believer.
NACA? The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics?

What's the point of this? What is it meant to demonstrate, or prove, or support?
Looks like it is confirmation that most (only just) people here are non-believers as should be expected at a science oriented site.
I guess that it paints a rough picture of what Sciforums' more active participants think about religion.
The poll allows multiple responses. As a result, we don't really know how many people have voted. So the percentages might not tell us a whole lot.
The first four categories do seem to be kind of mutually exclusive though, so that most people are likely to have only chosen one of the four.
We currently have 10 who voted 'don't believe in God and never did' (that's the one I chose) along with another 15 who chose 'don't believe now but used to'. (I'll throw out the speculative hypothesis that our more angry and militant atheists tend to come from the latter group.) That's 25 atheists.
That's compared to 6 people who say that they do believe in God, split 50/50 between those who always have and those who say they once didn't.
Assuming no multiple votes in this group, that's 31 people total, 81% of whom are current atheists, and 90% of whom say that they are current or former atheists.
My first reaction to this data is that those who voted in the poll don't seem to accurately represent the views of the general public. I don't think that they accurately represent the views of working scientists or science students either. While scientists are significantly more likely than the general public to be atheists, I don't think that the percentages reach those seen here.
Which supports the impression that some have voiced that Sciforums has become something of an atheists' club. I'm not really complaining, since I'm an atheist myself, I'm just pointing it out. (It's also disproportionately politically left, but that's another subject.) Sciforums seems to have evolved its own distinct little virtual and international social-affinity subculture.
Oh no... "New Age Christan Atheist"... a proud... yet humble groop of like-minded believers.!!!
Lol. I never would have guessed that. I like it.
Can you explain these personal experiences?
