i am 90% atheist and 10% agnostic. basically i can not prove that a god/gods exists. i can say that i see no prove for any, nor do i see any affect on my daily life if their were.
Or is that it?
I'm a third generation Buddhist associated with the tradition started by Thich Nhat Hanh.
No, that's either Objectivism or continental philosophy. Take your picks.

Agreed and agreed. God, Jesus, Zeus, Thor, Tree Spirits; none of these things exist.

I'm an atheist. I don't believe God exists, or "spirits" or anything of the sort. However, that is not a strong belief, so if it turned out that God or whatever did exist, I wouldn't be surprised...
So... I guess that really makes me an agnostic?
No. You're an atheist, just a reasonable one. The very definition of being reasonable is being open to argumentation. If someone were to produce a good argument against any one of my beliefs, I'd just say "whoops" and amend my belief. This even goes for God. But since I lack the belief in god right now, I'm an atheist, and so are you.

Jewish by culture and tradition.
I'll believe in a god or gods when it's/thier existance is proven to be a theory through scientific method. And I'll worship a god(s) when there is a legitimate reason why I should.
Just because on the off chance someone might prove the existance of a "higher" bieng, doesn't mean we should worship them. Do lower animals worship humans?
I don't think religion is a bad thing, when taken in moderation and people realize it is only a belief of something they want to be true.
From a historical standpoint, religion and religious beliefs are a window into the minds of the past and ancient culture, how ancient people thought and what values they held that they thought it was important enough to invent a belief system about. I think it is a valuable tool for historians and cultural anthropologists in that respect.
Arahoushi, if what you say is true then I'm a bit confused, I don't see any proof of the existance of anything paranormal or holy or whatever, and seriously don't believe that there will ever be, but if some day I wake up and have a flying monkey in my room saying he is God and doing all these miracles like launching fireballs from his ass then yeah, I would say "guess I was wrong"
In short, I'm a skeptic, but I know how much I don't know so...
What does this make me ?!
Exactly, this is another thing people don't get, even if there is a God people don't have to worship him/her/it, if there is a God that allows inocent people to die, all kind of catastrophes happen and all the **** thats wrong in the world then why the **** should people worship him/her/it whatever ?!
And I'll worship a god(s) when there is a legitimate reason why I should.
