I suppose you could put me down as Anglican, but I'm first and foremost a Platonist universalist or perennialist.. I'm English, though I currently reside in Australia, and am 25.

I would describe myself similarly, but Catholic rather than Anglican, although considered converting to the latter.

I Veer towards agnosticism myself nowdays as I cannot be a 'fellow traveller' in the athiest 'bus' whilst those of a communist bent are so close to the driver.

Agnosticism is a respectable position that there are things we cannot know with certainty – but discriminating and choosing better options are essential.   Socrates/Plato's agnosticism included this with the "I know that I know nothing."

Well, being a traditional Englishman the Church of England certainly appeals to my loyalties and cultural heritage. It also has produced much to be proud of spiritually, culturally, and intellectually - in both its Cranmerian and Anglo-Catholic varieties. But it is not in a good way today, so I have long thought of leaving. If women bishops become widespread, I will certainly have to leave.

The Roman Church I respect and appreciate greatly, but I don't think I would convert to it. I've been considering Orthodox Churches and the Church of the East.

Reminder to record Elizabelo_II as an atheist when I update the survey beginning on the 15th.

Also, I'm going to try and update the survey in July, but be warned, this will be a multi-day project.


Nevermind on Wessexman's Anglicanism, he just flipped all the tables, and I'll get around to this in early August.

I'm an Anglo-Catholic, of the decidedly illiberal variety. I lean heavily towards Thomism and Aristotelian philosophy. It would be strange to lump me into the "Anglican/Episcopalian" group since I have little to do with most of them.

But your profile says you are an atheist.[confused]

The work on updating the big demographic survey has finally begun! The remaining ~141 accounts will be added to both surveys over the next period of time or so.

As should be obvious, work on the survey has been suspended for a while, and shall resume probably during my Spring Break in March.

Good luck with your demographic survey. It seems like a productive and interesting  way to spend your vacation. I guess that Spring Break does have some worthwhile purpose after all.
