List of Wikimedians by religion

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Wikipedia has users from all over the world, so naturally there are many religions represented by those users.

The following is a list of Wikipedians classified by religions (and non-religions), which should not be taken too seriously. (Some people, indeed, dislike the very idea of such a classification.)

Users are invited to self-identify (use the tilde key ~ three times) with the category of their choice, and to add their own if it is not listed. Feel free to subcategorize as appropriate (in other words, Protestant vs. Catholic, Lutheran vs. Methodism, Reform vs. Orthodox, etc.) with respect to sectarian differences. Please keep the list formatted consistently and try to keep it alphabetic. This is an experimental project and may well not last, but let's see how it goes. I'm not even sure what this could hope to accomplish, maybe I was too tired when I thought it up.

Some Wikipedias have categories for this, such as as the English Wikipedians by religion.

Anglo-Catholicism[edit]

  1. Greaser -- Born and raised a Seventh-Day Adventist, he revolted against this in his early teen years, went through an agnostic spell. Now, he sit as almost precisely on the fence between Roman Catholicism and Anglicanism. Greaser is technically in both camps, albeit, due to his lack of Catholic baptism, he's not in full communion with the Catholic Church. Devout but has been known to attend other church services on occasions.
  2. Though I think of myself as being a very High Churchman.--Anglius 18:53, 26 February 2006 (UTC)
  3. The only difference for the most part inbetween me and a Roman Catholci is that I am nuteral when it comes to purgatory, that the Pope is the human head of the church, and that latin should be used in services. --James, La gloria è a dio 03:43, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

  4. Rodrigogomesonetwo Baptized, never got Communion and Confirmation. I believe in God... Well, not really, but I like to think there is one somewhere out there. Like a large number of Brazilians, I flirt with spiritualistic religions.

Zoroastrianism[edit]

Non-religions[edit]

Agnosticism[edit]

  1. Alkivar (after the age of reason)
  2. Branddobbe uncertain deist
  3. Matt Line - I've always been interested in religion, which may be why I dislike it so much.
  4. Daisy-Head Mayzie
  5. Denni I have searched my whole life, and have yet to see anything that constitutes arguable evidence of any supernatural entity. It's struck me that, for something so omnipotent, all-knowing, and omnipresent, should God be that hard to find? But hey, I could be wrong.
  6. Dyss I'm a stone-throw away from an atheist, yet I do not believe I am in the position to state, with certainty, that there is nothing "beyond what we can see". I denounce all existing religions though (they're just really sophisticated pyramid scheme's) - if there is something "beyond what we can see" it/he/she/goat has yet to reveal itself.
  7. Sean Curtin
  8. Hołek ҉
  9. Hyacinth
  10. Ingoolemo
  11. Katefan0 Agnostic with secular human tendencies... I can't know the unknowable, pro or con, so death will either be my greatest adventure or most profound disappointment. Until then I try to live life the best and kindest way I can. If there is a God, or force or whatever you want to call it out there, I have to believe that'll be good enough. And if not, I was never a foolish sheep. 198.67.17.7 18:00, 11 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  12. Koxinga: this is a too difficult and pointless question... I will see when I will die. And proselytism is bad ;o)
  13. KSchutte
  14. Logotu (I could classify myself here but that wouldn't be the whole story)
  15. Luis Dantas (Agnostic, Atheist, Buddhist, Secular Humanist)
  16. MrThomas - Agnostic, that's mmmmmmeeeeeeeee!!!!! Now how do I add this ti my user page?
  17. Mindspillage Weak atheist, strong agnostic.
  18. Neolux I used to called myself multi-denominational, then I called myself non-denominational. Basically, I beleive people need faith in something, and whatever they choose is fine with me, just don't try to convert me. I always keep an open mind, and look into what each religion offers and choose my own path from there. I cannot subscribe to particular system of belief at this time, so I guess I'm hedging my bets in this regard.
  19. Rie - Hey, you, Atheist! Yeah, you! I'm gonna punch you! Or not. But I, too, believe in the divine spirit of the Agnosto, and it's a shame our name has been tarnished and confused with another, similar group over the years. For shame.
  20. Saint-Paddy Weak atheist, until some ball of light descends from the sky and declears in a booming voice "I AM GOD!", then I'm agnostic... depsite taking holy communion...
  21. Silume
  22. Suriko A little athiest'ish (with a sprinkle of secular humanist and materialist thrown in), but after long hard thinking, came to the conslusion that proving or disproving god is impossible (which is the basis of faith, really). Pretty much the same as Dyss.
  23. Taco Deposit — Weak atheist / agnostic / secular humanist
  24. Tualha I decided I was an atheist at age 12. Later, I lost my faith ;)

Weak agnosticism[edit]

  1. Dante Alighieri, there are, quite simply, some things that are unknown at this time. Well, I'm also a weak atheist I suppose, but I'm gonna stay up here.
  2. Jeandré — raised Protestant. If gods exist, which I doubt, some of them may decide to prove their existance: "don't tell God what to do".
  3. Sarge Baldy

Antireligious[edit]

  1. 200.154.204.237
  2. Tedius Zanarukando I am antifundamentalist, opposing both Christian and Islamic fundamentalism. I believe that Islamic fundamentalism is the biggest threat to world peace.
  3. Topbanana
  4. Lockeownzj00 You could say I am anti-religious, but I don't hate people who have religions. I just don't like the religions themselves.
  5. 129.128.67.23. the stuff is good for enforcing death on others. nothing else.
  6. MeltBanana Devout, born-once, militant, indifferentist.
  7. Wins oddf
  8. Citizen Premier Your god sure did a lot of work to make it seem like he doesn't exist.
  9. Liface
  10. Me lkjhgfdsa Religions replace open mindes with closed ones. Religions destroy all the good that education does.
  11. Daanschr Religions should be outlawed, so birth control can make the earth more liveable. A ban on war is not possible with different religions combating eachother.

  14. Mike.lifeguard

Atheism[edit]

  1. ^pirate - Positive atheist.
  2. Abdullais4u - actually apatheist.
  3. Andrevan - ethnically and culturally Jewish, religiously atheist.
  4. Andrewlevine Non-humanist atheist, pseudo-agnostic. (I also believe that the question of whether or not God exists is completely irrelevant, as I would live my life no differently either way.)
  5. AngryParsley Why? Because I went to Catholic school for six years.
  6. Aperculum I hate laestadians ^_^
  7. Arno Lagrange son of an antireligious father and an atheist protestant born mother, I am an atheist which likes buddhism because it's rather a philosophy than a religion.

  24. FvdP "freedom over faith". Sort of a "practical atheist": there is probably no God, but there are more important questions than that; many answers are probably the same regardless of God's existence. I strongly refuse to be guided (driven...) by any religion.

  44. Mattroberts66 - Strong Dispiser of Religion
  45. Mikez - Also second Sabbut :). Been an atheist since I began thinking seriously about it at 12-13 years of age, and then rejected what the schoolteachers (rather: a teacher) had taught me about God.
  46. Neural - Weak atheist. Strong critic of the arbitrary religious mythology that many seem willing to kill for. I am aware that the conflict between Islam and Christianity is tearing the world apart once more, in this supposedly "enlightened" age.

  62. Redfarmer I was once a Christian but then I realized how illogical it all is. I've never been happier with my decision to deconvert.
  63. Rednblu I wonder how many "atheists" would continue to proclaim political independence from the Creator if she dropped onto Constitution Avenue and demanded that every man bow to her. That is, is atheism a defiant politics of freedom as well as the non-religion that it is?
  64. Roybb95

  72. Sunny256 — I used to call me an agnostic for many years, but this was by some misunderstood as "semi-christian", and that's just not acceptable. To be pedantic about it, I'm an agnostic atheist.

  79. Toby Bartels (in a weak sense)
  80. tompagenet - devout, deep beliver in being nice to people because it's right, not because I get punished if I'm nasty.
  81. Vudujava I am a "devout" atheist as the concept of god makes no more logical sense to me than people falling for a 419 scam.
  82. Wapcaplet, an implicit atheist, generally considers religious questions to be less interesting than non-religious questions.
  83. Webkid I am not sure if there's someone high above in the sky watching us.. I would say simply that I don't believe in prehistoric fabrications.

  92. DerekvG I consider myself an Atheist, I reject "belief" so I'm a disbeliever, I fight against idolatry, gullibility but ultimately I fight against the abuse of power, authority; and any form of authoritariansm, what any monotheist religion in fact is codified and symbolised authoritariansm : the blind and sacrefied belief in "authority".

Strong atheism[edit]

  1. Amayzes
  2. Binadot - born to a family of Smartists and Anglicans, but currently an Atheist with a capital "A".
  3. Comics

  5. Jyril - 100% pure atheist. Oh, and gods exist... They just aren't what you think they are.
  6. Kbdank71
  7. L33tminion
  8. Lord Bob - praise the non-lord.
  9. M&NCenarius - There is no god... think about it; it's pure nonsense
  10. Malathion
  11. MSTCrow - Positive atheist, and cannot help but be one, which sometimes conflicts me.
  12. Promonex - God isn't dead and God will never be dead. But God decays with every single piece of scientific knowledge we acquire, until the very day in a far away future, in which there won't be any gaps for him to hide anymore. Indulging in natural sciences it shall be my very pleasure to contribute to his decay.
  13. Ryan Cable Strong

  19. 203.76.181.38
  20. Capitan Obvio
  21. Paul Barkley - A god is a being that created or controls the laws of the universe, and there's no such being.
  22. Steve Magruder - Over the past couple years, I realized that if one cannot prove teapots in orbit around Pluto, one cannot prove God. In other words, the concept of God is nonsense. And this also goes for any supernatural phenomena. It's either natural, or it's fiction.
  23. Selfworm - I have yet to see any evidence for the existence of a God.
  24. thedemonhog

Ultra-strong atheism[edit]

  1. GTubio - If I say "elephants fly" but I don't prove it, no one (with a brain) can assume that as a truth. The same applies to deities. However, deities are much more dangerous for humanity than my "elephants fly" statement can be. I ferociously fight religion/superstition wherever I sense it. I also refuse an "atheist religion", people must _realize_ (through brain use) about the need of ultra-strong atheism, if it is imposed it can be as negative as the worst religion (Christianism?).
  2. Anonunit
  3. Hezzy 20:11, 29 July 2006 (UTC) Religion has done nothing but start wars and build walls between people. Look at the middle east! As people become more educated, religion will fail.

Rationalism[edit]

  1. --Nick-in-South-Africa 22:18, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC) Close enough, also interested in and much time for much Buddhist thought, but from a, rationalist perspective. Also qualify as a positive atheist and an agnostic as per Huxley's original meaning. Any and all supernatural claims put my sceptical faculties into hyperdrive. My considered view is that there is an objective reality.

Meta.[edit]

Based on this meta page's 2003-12-21t17:33:18z, 2004-12-25t08:59:47z, 2005-12-24t09:28:24z, 2006-12-23t05:06:05z, 2007-12-24t22:37:02z, 2008-11-30t03:39:13z, 2009-12-07, 2010-12-14, and 2011-12-26 versions.

I simply used the bullet numbers; so if someone said "until age 12", "I don't really believe all that stuff", or "Not practicing, agnostic" I counted them as being of the listed faith anyway; and if they listed themselves under more than 1 faith (usually more than 1 non-faith) they were counted more than once. Not very accurate but interesting.
