Ah. My maternal grandmother was one of about ten, but as I said, only three of them lived to adulthood. Her mother was one of two, but her dad died aged 24, limiting the number of children. Every person in my family of my grandparents generation is dead. My family, especially my mother's side (which is particularly Irish Catholic), has a ridiculously low life expectancy.

Well in any case, I'm atheist. XP

I forget if I already replied to this thread, but I don't think I did.

I'm actually surprised there's so many of them here, I thought there'd only be about five or something judging from this forum's general attitude.

Then again, I'm used to living where Christians are a definite minority...

I'm not sure about my particular area, but as far as I know it's definitely less than 50% Christian for the whole UK. The 2001 census said something like 70% but considering other polls and such that's mainly just people raised like that who probably believe in God very vaguely if at all. In a YouGov poll 44% people said they believe in God, so yeah. I know people that call themselves Christian out of habit but aren't actually religious whatsoever.

Everywhere I've lived, people are treated as very peculiar indeed if they are a devout Christian. God bless secularism. :D

I live in a Buckle of the Bible Belt. No, really.

"Lubbock, Texas, which is said to have more churches per capita than anywhere else in the nation"

Born and raised. In Texas I think it's like 25% Catholic, 50% Christian (other than Catholic) and then everything else is dumped in the last 25%. so 75% Christian for my state.

My country is.... depends on whether you count people that are officially catholic but don't go to church anymore. 43.4% is nominally Christian.

I however think that only 1.2% of catholics (26% total) actually attend mass on given Sundays. The same probably goes for protestants.

So the actual amount of religious people is much lower.

Ireland has 95% of people identifying as Christian and what's worrying is even if you didn't count people who weren't active participants in their faith, we still have a 97% theism rate. Atheists make up only 3% of the population.

Religious trends in the UK - really interesting reading. The UK has more people that identify as Jedi Knights than as Jewish and Buddhist combined.

That is interesting. I've always loved that people actually put Jedi (my friend's parents did. :'D)

Also, whoa. If you ignore Jediism, paganism (including the numbers for Wiccans and Druids... and I guess the 300 Heathens even though they were misplaced into 'no religion' for some reason) is the seventh largest religion. :'D And haha, we beat Spiritualists who have a worryingly large number.

Sorry for necroposting, but I wanted to put my 2 cents in.

I was (and still am) raised without religion as a large part of my life; my parents parents were pretty religious, but they weren't into it much, and didn't want to be a very religious family with me and my sister. So my religion is just... no religion, really. I believe in God, and a couple of miscellaneous stuff not really pertaining to any one religion, but everything else just strikes as "Um, yeah, maybe that happened, or maybe thats true, but since theres no way to tell... its a nice story, I guess?" Even my belief in God, or a higher power is a bit shaky; I believe in Him only because I believe we as a species couldn't have gotten to where we are now without a little divine intervention.
