Nope, I have no doubt.
I don't really believe in established religion, or anything created by man for men for that matter, but I certainly know there is a God.
Just don't think he really cares what religion we all are.

Re: Are you sure? [supplementary religion poll]

Well, my definition of what a "god" is is that which is omniscient and omnipotent. And when I consider it in the context of Physics and the four fundamental forces, it's difficult for me to really say that I do not believe in some kind of power(s) that is higher than myself going on behind the scenes, so to speak. Of course, I don't and wouldn't claim to fully understand it, but I do know that there exists something that governs and dictates reality which is far beyond my immediate perception and control.

A friend of mine is an astrophysicist and an atheist. We would often debate about religion. I once asked him: "If there is something that you would consider (and admit to be) both omniscient and omnipotent," what would it be? His answer was "a photon." It then occurred to me that Light also happens to be the most common symbol for "god" across all or most major religions. Just something I found rather interesting...

Re: Are you sure? [supplementary religion poll]

This poll is the worst poll in the history of mankind (well, since polls were invented in 407BC by Gallupus Morius).

Where is the "I'm not sure if I'm agnostic or not. Sometimes late at night I have my doubts. Especially on Tuesdays or when Songs of Praise is on" option?

That, or simply two additional options like, "I don't know" and "I don't care" (multiple answers allowed).

Re: Are you sure? [supplementary religion poll]

This thread needs more pedantry!
Are you defining agnostic as "don't know" or as "actively believe it's impossible to know"?
