"Because there is always the possibility that the two parties involved did not know they were related! Very rare cases here, but they do exist."

"This is fantastic. I love Dawkins, and I love his accent more. I really dislike the talk show host. She asks shallow, obvious questions and she is so arrogant!"

brkfstclblvr commented on Sophie's blog post 'Okay what if you find someone special and they are religious?'
"Statistically you are more likely to survive a marriage if you have the same religion (or belief system). Just a little Psychology 101 factoid. My personal experience is that I match most with someone who is like-minded when it comes to politics…"

brkfstclblvr replied to Johnny's discussion 'Get Rid of Marriage, Call it Civil Union'
"Do you mean to imply that you read the article and the rest of us didn't? Just curious. As far as the petition your church to do away with bigotry, well unfortunately religion is a right in this country."

brkfstclblvr replied to Morgan Matthew's discussion 'Does anyone else feel the bailout as more the single greatest scam ever committed towards the American people..is something real big and bad about to happen?'
"I think that is a bankrupt argument, no offense. It's so easy to take the that road when we all know it will never go back to that type of system. I also happen to think it is easier to have federal standards for certain things so that people…"

brkfstclblvr replied to Nulono's discussion 'Anti-abortion atheists'
"Again....children conceived from two related people will not necessarily be deformed, so the "fetal deformity" concept alone is bankrupt. AND when arguing FOR abortions in the rare case category, "fetal deformity" would not go…"

brkfstclblvr replied to Nulono's discussion 'Anti-abortion atheists'
"Incest packs more punch than "fetal deformity." Also, children who are born of relatives won't always be deformed. The parents who later find out they are related may simply want to terminate the pregnancy."

brkfstclblvr replied to Sniz's discussion 'Religulous....What are your thoughts?'
"The problem is that very few people who are religious want to watch any movie, read any book, or hear any lecture about how their religion may be wrong! They might feel as if the secular world is pushing their agenda just as much as many of us have…"

"Wow. It takes me about 10 minutes to wrap my head around each topic, but I love it anyway. Thanks for the link!"

brkfstclblvr replied to Sophie's discussion 'I am pro-choice because...'
"I teach human sexuality, my students know what's out there, but they choose to ignore the consequences. This is a far deeper societal issue of why humans fall victim to the "that won't happen to me" heuristic. I was just reading…"

Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic
About Me:
I am a psychology professor at a college and a GED instructor at a local county jail. I specialize in cognitive psychology, human growth and development, gender topics, and human sexuality.

I live in Colorado and I am a huge politics and religion junkie. I have always loved talking about these topics, and love the Internet for bringing me to people who also love to discuss them.
Why are you here?
I found the article posted here on Bill Nye and Waco Texas and spent the entire night going through the blogs and articles.

I am here to talk with people about religion and gain insight on different perspectives.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
My parents never forced religion on me, but being raised in a small Colorado town, I was never exposed to any other religion except Christianity. The first time I even heard of another religion was in high school. Once I reached college, I began to seriously question my association with Christian values, and realized that I didn't believe in everything, so why did I consider myself "Christian?"

At that point I investigated all of the religions through college courses, personal reflection, and quasi-qualitative research and discovered that agnosticism fit me the best. I believe there is an energy on the earth that cannot be explained, and am just far too spiritual to excuse all phenomena as "scientific."
