THIS IS NOT A DEBATE
Lets face it, most of the Internet is outspokenly Atheist / Agnostic. I was hoping to do a survey of /lit/ on what it's beliefs are in that regard. Note, this is what you actually believe, not what you are nominally.
>Religious, Agnostic, Spiritual, Atheist
>Denomination (if applicable)
Please no trolls. /lit/ seems to be one of the most ideologically diverse places on the webs and I think it would be cool to see some demographics. If we get enough posts, I will post the results in a few days.

Summer Reading Thread

ITT we talk about the books we have read this summer thus far and what we thought. Ratings too I suppose.
Brothers Karamazov - I enjoyed it, more so than The Idiot. Evoked a lot of thoughts and ponderings about religion. 9/10
Dune - Fantastic. Couldn't put it down. Though I often found myself hoping that there would be more exploration of the desert and less focus on the Baron's faggot nephews, still a great read. 9.5/10
Helmet of Horror - Havent read anything quite like it. Strange premise and concepts that, after multiple retreading of the page, I still didn't understand, made for an enjoyable, though frustrating, book. One I will be rereading for sure. 8.5/10
Haunted - I've encountered a lot of bashing of Palahniuk and I decided to pick up Haunted. I know it isn't his best but I was in the mood for short stories anyways. Overall, not bad. There are certainly some gems (The bowling ball and the worldwide emigration in particular). Some of the stories were boring and tried too hard, Ill admit. 7/10
Rontel - You've probably never heard of Sam Pink. I sure hadn't until I read Rontel. Never has a book made me laugh so hard I had to put it down. Funniest book I've ever read. Highly recommended. 10/10
Island - Though the plot is rather dull, the ideas conveyed by Huxley are something to consider. Once I realized the plot and character development weren't important, I enjoyed it a lot more. 8/10
