Pretty much only when Show of Hands reminds me that religion or the concept of God is out there.

If it wasn't for Show of Hands I don't think it would come up more than once a week. It's not something I feel the need to dwell on.

Probably the most surprising thing I've ever heard you say.

I think that god would punish you for thinking every day!

There actually aren't many atheists here. Christianity is very common but everybody has a "mind your own business" attitude about most everything here. So you don't catch a lot of the "ram it down your throat" types. It's nice.

When I think of God, I just go to his Facebook page for a good laugh.

If not for polls on SOH or the occasional news event involving a church scandal, I don't think I would give much thought to either one, ever.

It's a little hard not to when you participate in SoH everyday. ;-)

But it varies from actual thought to "What whacky thing will they do next?"

No. Very rarely will I ponder the existence of some god.

More than I used to, mainly because the topic crops up on SOH one way or another.

Yes. Not about religion as a concept. But, I do think about God at least once a day.

Recently yes. I have to say when I was a Christian maybe not, but now it's constantly brought to the front of my mind.

I frequently contemplate the big questions, but rarely within the restraints of any one religion.

Don't let Sarah Palin be your idea of Alaska, please! Most of us here dislike the woman and wish she would mind her own damn business. Alaskans pride themselves on not forcing out beliefs onto others. The state constitution puts a right to privacy

above almost everything else here. Only the vocal idiots like Palin feel the need to force their religious views onto others, and thankfully Alaska doesn't have many of those...

I make an effort to attend daily mass when I can, so I would say so.

You know I don't really know that much about how prevalent religion is in Alaska. I guess it isn't as big of a deal there?

Alaska is quite conservative and religious from my understanding.

Religion:
: the belief in a god or in a group of gods
: an organized system of beliefs, ceremonies, and rules used to worship a god or a group of gods
: an interest, a belief, or an activity that is very important to a person or group
