It's pigeon hole - not home. I'm atheist and find your question rather troll-like (bad vocab and all).

I'd give you an answer if I could figure out the difference between a theist and a deist. Theist is from the Greek and Deist is from the Latin. Both mean acknowledging the existance of a God, or gods. I don't pigeonhole anyone. Not by religion, nationality, ethnicity or skin colour.

I've given up on organized religion at large. I tend to take whatever elements of a religion I think can help me and try to apply them to my life. I like concepts of Christianity, Buddhism, and Thelema.

From your additional details, I don't believe that was a real question, but rather a statement. Sort of like, "Why do people believe in christianity?; Additional Details: "People always need a crutch." You're violating Yahoo policy by answering your own question and you're demonstrating you wanted to say something instead of ask something. This makes it look like you are trying to start an argument. Answer: No, I'm not an agreeist. People need to pigeonhole an idealism sometimes. It's a survival mechanism. We, as humans have all kinds of beliefs, but some are more important than others is all. Yes, the brain is that smart to hold on to all these ideas, but it's also really good at being selective, for good or ill.

I don't know. That bothers me. I'm an ignostic, weak agnostic, henotheist, theist, and pantheist. I hope that I didn't leave anything out, because that might make my position seem foolish, like I claim to actually know any of the stuff that I talk about.
