    Default Are you religious/ superstitious?

    This isn't a slanging match thread, just a poll to find how many forum members are religious or superstitious. Hence a multiple choice poll. I havn't included all the various non-belief types (atheist, agnostic and the other infinite variety), these come under "not religious", although "don't know" is also there. I'm not sure whether religeous people feel offended by calling God a supernatural enitiy, but I wanted to include all kinds of, err, supernatural entities as well as gods, if different, whatever they may be. So if that offends you, just ignore the supernatural bit and assume it means your God.

    There is nothing offensive about calling God supernatural. In fact its probably a compliment. It just means he is not bound by the laws of physics and nature, like the rest of us are.
    now superstitious - thats a different story

    Not all religions have a supernatural God at their centre, some people worship natural objects like trees or cats. or money.

    No, people who worship lots of gods at the same time.

    Anyway, how about ancestor worshippers?

    Does 'ghosts' cover ancestors, apart from the worshipping aspect, more running away screaming, etc?

    I believe words like "religious" should be consistently spelled when used multiple times in the same poll.

    WHS. By definition the Christian/Jewish/Muslim god is supernatural... dunno about other faiths. A non-supernatural god would be pretty useless.
