This is to see the variety of beliefs that circulate through the forum. I hadn't found anything on this before and thought this was a good idea.

I will show respect for all religions.

I think you'll find that a good percentage will choose agnosticism if you provide it as an option. We tend to only believe what we can see here.

Agnostic and gnostic are not mutually exclusive to a religious preference.

All I did was comment on the tendency of religious belief on this forum. I fail to see why this should be controversial.

Being as this site always has a large number of Deists, I find it strange you should lump them all into 'other'.

And something called electro-theology gets its very own choice.

I am unaware of the populations of certain religions, so I would be happy to add some options that are believed to deserve a separate option.

P.S. The "Electro-Theology" was for a specific member I saw who voiced his/her belief and thought it would be a nice little option to add for such a (at least to me) little known belief.

Agnosticism is not a religious belief, but rather the conviction that their beliefs are not knowledge.
