I used to believe in god. But after thinking about if for a long time and after having talked with my uncle - I stopped believing in god, In a way this has made my life easier as I have stopped fearing death and on whether I am going to hell or heaven. Atheism has also made me courageous - I have stopped believing in anything supernatural. So when people come and say "Bad spirits have negative effects in the house you live.", It doesn't affect me.

I respect other people's beliefs though, since I have no right in changing their beliefs - But I would expect the very same from them.

I don't have a religion as they are all flawed in one way or another.

I do like the idea of some religions which promote peace and goodwill but at the same time you don't need to believe in a divine entity to be a good person either.

V.I.P.
In my opinion, I don't think it matters. As long as you're a good person, and you treat other people the same way you would expect them to treat you, then that's what really matters to me. I see so many arguments about religion and who is right and wrong when at the end of the day, no one is going to budge. What we believe in makes up who we are, and if you believe in something, then I don't think no amount of arguing or reasoning is going to change your mind, unless you change it yourself.

It's much better to just respect other people's beliefs and continue on with your lives.

But, my answer to the original post is that no, I'm not religious. And I don't really believe in a god. Whether I believe that there is a god or not is something else entirely. I was religious when I was younger, but, to put it simply, it wasn't for me

I'm really into these things. My experience tells that we have different kinds of people with beliefs:

1. The one who stays loyal to his/her belief.
2. The one who is tired of his religion and changes it.
3. The one who is tired of his religion and does not believe in it anymore, without changing it. But He/She accepts the basis of the previous religion (God for example).
4. The one who completely does not believe in any religions.
5. The one who goes further and becomes and Anti-Religion of his previous religion.

People have one of those 5 beliefs, nothing else. It's the matter of your situation and people whom you talk to. If you were born as a Muslim, your mind is affected by your situation, cuz you live in a Middle-Eastern or an Asian country.
But some guys tell that the truth is one thing. Something EXISTS or DOESN'T EXISTS, so do God. This may be true, but under one condition: A human must be able to reach a point to decide whether it exists or doesn't exists. I mean the truth may EXISTS, but a human can't tell if it exists or not. In this case, that truth doesn't exists for human (and this is important). For example, you can't tell the roots of the below mathematical equation EXACTLY:

5x^5+3x^4-2x^3+11x^2-4x-1=0

Galva proved that it's not possible for a human being to calculate the exact roots of this equation. It has root(s), but WE cannot find it. Unless we use computers (that's not exact too, but close).

I told these things to people who say that God exists for sure, or doesn't exist for sure. We have to guess. We must compare what we get and then reach a conclusion. I myself do not believe in god. "Human even can't create an ant, but has created hundreds of gods".
If there was an afterlife, it's not necessary to live here.
