Over the course of human history, there have been many religions and many sets of religious beliefs. Some have had a transcultural reach and significance, while others have been culture-specific. Since some form of religion has been found to exist in every conceivable culture known to man I would say that it evolved early in our history and satisfies a deep-seated psychological need to be able to make sense of the world around us and determine our place in it. This, in a nutshell, is what I think of religion.
However, if the prompt should be interpreted to mean whether I adhere to a specific set of religious beliefs myself, then all I can say is that I identify as a christian of the Catholic persuasion. Raised in an agnostic household, I nevertheless grew up in a culture in which judaeo-christian values and ideals are the norm, so when I identified the need to have a creed in my own life I chose Christianity over Buddhism or Islam or animism. In studying its history, its philosophy, its theology, and the history of the early Church, I became more and more convinced that the Catholic faith was the one for me, and I was baptised and joined the Church in October 1994. I stress though, that this concerns my personal belief system, and in no means implies that I reject others. I don't subscribe to the idea that Christianity is in any way superior to other religions or, indeed, the only way to enlightenment or salvation.
