Your Religious Status
About Me:
I am a published writer of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, an artist, and a rogue intellectual. I am not a Christian or a believer in Genesis as literal truth but gave up on atheism after some years. Among the reasons for this are the fact that I realized atheism was my way of allowing religious whacks to define me. There are a lot of alternatives other than Darwinism or Biblical Creationism.
Why are you here?
Hopefully to engage in intelligent conversation. Is agnosticism a more truly objective stance than atheism? What's the deal with order and disorder, entropy, and complexity? Is a statistical tendency toward disorder really the only thing that demonstrates the arrow of time?
Why you left your religion.
Why don't you have atheism among the religions I left? I left it for any number of reasons, among them that it has far too much in common with the mindset of the fundamentally ill for my tastes.
Think Atheist Travel Network Couch Availability - Are you able to host anyone now?
Coffee or a drink

    Hey Mike... I agree.. If I'm going to call myself anything its going to be what I am.... not what I don't believe in... So I consider myself a natural humanist. I think we haven't scratched the surface of the natural yet......much less speak of exploring its depths that its ludicrous and hubristic to the nth degree to posit a 'SUPER-natural' . Lets finish exploring the natural first before we posit anything beyond it. In light of this I'm not going to let 'religion' be my sole focus in life.
    That said.. I'm certainly going to stand up when religion inpinges upon my rights and freedoms and the rights and freedoms of others.

    Thanks, Mike. They are both Shiba Inu, a Japanese hunting dog. So, I'd keep them away from Mr. Biggles. Of course, they have only been successful in hunting crickets so far, Mr. Biggles actually may have nothing to fear. And welcome to T|A!

    Interesting hypothesis about dingos and Shibas. I suppose that it is possible! And I don't blame that cat from fearing the Pepe LePew look.

    JtHM, Fillerbunny, Squee! and I Feel Sick are all sitting on my bookcase as we speak. Which is your favorite, or have you only read Filler?
