The meaning in my life comes from
A higher power, who has a plan for us
Nowhere. There is no higher power and life has no meaning
The pursuit of my goals, ambitions, hobbies, and projects
My connections with others, my experiences, and the emotions I feel
I am most likely to believe something is true if
Trustworthy people tell me they've seen evidence that they judge to be valid
It is written in a sacred text
I feel it in my gut
I personally see evidence that I judge to be valid
It is told to me by a religious authority
I think the universe
Was created as part of a divine plan
Is a natural place and can be understood best through science
Is a natural place. But I do also believe there is another, supernatural, layer to reality
On the question of whether there's a god
I think that there are a number of gods / goddesses
I see no evidence for any gods or goddesses, so I don't think they do exist
I see no evidence for any gods or goddesses, so I don't know
I think that there is a god
Other people matter and should be treated with respect because...
God created us all in his image
We will all be happier if we treat each other well
They are people with feelings like mine
They are useful to me
When it comes to religion, I think governments should
Reflect the majority religion in the country - if the majority are one religion, that religion should take precedence
Be impartial - governments should not favour or discriminate against any person because of religion
Promote atheism - no religions are true and governments should act accordingly to tell people so
I can tell right from wrong by...
Thinking for myself about the probable consequences of my actions and their effects on others
Consulting a holy book or listening to a religious leader
Picking whatever will work out best for me. No need to worry about others
Other animals should be treated...
Kindly because they are sweet and fluffy and nicer than people
However we see fit. They don't have souls and were created for us to use
With respect because they are part of God's creation
With respect because they can suffer too
When I look at a beautiful natural view I think that...
It must have been designed by God to be so perfect
We ought to do everything possible to protect this for future generations
This is what life is all about. I feel good
When I die...
I will go on to exist forever in another place.
I will be reborn into a new body.
I see no evidence that I will continue in any way, so death will most likely be the end of me.
I don't know what will happen, so I have no opinion.
