ESSENCE Poll: Do You Consider Yourself Spiritual, Religious or an Atheist?

Fewer and fewer Americans are calling themselves "religious." What do you identify as?

Is there a God? It's perhaps the most asked question of all time, and the answer lies purely in faith. Do you have faith that there is a higher power, or do you think that the worshipping of an unknown entity is fruitless?

A new study just released from the Pew Research Center finds that fewer and fewer Americans identify as religious. Eleven percent of Baby Boomers and 16 percent of Gen X-ers identify as either atheistic, agnostic or impartial. That number among Millenials? A staggering 25 percent.

Where do you fall on the religious spectrum? Are you someone who considers yourself spiritual—believing in some sort of higher power, but not necessarily in organized religion—or are you strongly religious? Or do you not believe in religion all together and consider yourself an atheist?
