Instead of allowing someone to just assume your affiliation, why not share it here?
If you want, you can give your "faith of origin" (what you were raised as) and what other stops have you taken along the way.
What is one thing about your beliefs you would like others to keep in mind, when conversing with you here in the section?

Well that's a rather long list so instead of listing all the things I do believe, I will go into what I don't believe or rather the religious classification.
I am an Atheist- meaning "without gods" or "absent of gods" from the literal translation of the greek a-meaning without and theos- meaning gods or deities. I see religions as having expanded from philosophical origins which have been mistranslated, misinterpreted, and ultimately misrepresented (both intentionally and unintentionally) throughout the ages to evolve into the differing religions or beliefs we have now.
That does not mean I view religions negatively however, nor does it mean I "hate god". Rather I see "god" as an idea which was meant to help explain a philosophical concept not as a being that was anthropomorphized by man for their own gain or purpose.
