Yes just like everyone else.

That was strangely timely to this thread wasn't it.

I'm not trying to be a jerk, I'm really curious
I guess I'm "technically" agnostic, because I could go with the argument that the greater field of consciousness is god, who am I to say (although I tend not to make that argument myself, in general I prefer not to even think about it) I'm really primarily atheist. Buddhism is really an atheist religion. Spirituality is a big part of my life and I spend a decent amount of my forum time in the spirituality section. There is no disconnect to me between spirituality and atheism. In fact there is more of a disconnect to me between religiousness and spirituality because it seems that people with religiousity tend not to question or think about their beliefs nearly as much and are more likely to just agree with whatever they are told.
I just want to clarify about the field of consciousness thing. I don't like to say it's god because I find most people have an image of god in their head, and when they say consciousness is god, what they really mean is that consciousness is that image and they are not actually thinking about it or representing it in the terms of consciousness being the allness and oneness of everything that is. If god exists where is it?
