    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    My faith is personal and quite frankly none of your goddamn business (pun fully intended).

    I don't understand the question, can you be more specific?

    UpstateNYUPSer,

    I agree that your relationship with the God of the universe is personal.

    He responds and interacts with all His creation collectively but also very personally. I couldn't agree with you more.

    Your faith however is not personal.

    Everyone should know where you put your faith and who you put your faith in.

    Our love for the God of the universe should not be hid under a bushel.

    Sincerely,
    I

    According to the IRS I am a Roman Catholic who donates $20/week to St. Peters Church.

    UpstateNYUPSer,

    Is that St Peters in Troy or Plattsburgh?

    Sincerely,

    It's St. Peters in none of your God damn business. Have you ever been there? If not, I would love to give you directions.

    Back on topic:

    I can't seem to answer this poll. While I am not a believer in the supernatural, I also don't consider myself an Atheist.
    I think that is because I really don't want to belong to a group when I don't even care about the subject.
    For that same reason, I can't pick "other".

    "None of the above" might have worked...

    UpstateNYUPSer,

    It seems I've gotten too personal.

    I am very sorry, please forgive me.

    Sincerely,
    I

    If you don't believe in a god, you're an atheist because that's really all "atheist" means. There's a lot of reasons that people who are technically atheists don't like to be identified that way though, which is understandable.

    I agree. I just don't like being labeled, because it makes it sound like I have an Atheist membership card in my wallet and attend meetings down at the Atheist lodge once a month.

    I am not religious.

    I have faith in people and them in me, rather than just one god.

    I always think of Caine's answer when someone asks me:

    "What do you worship?"

    That is my answer, because that's really all there is.
