About Me:
I'm pretty young, so I'm used to getting the attitude where someone older than me shrugs me off as an immature, uneducated little brat who's just trying to be deep. Well, I'm not an immature, uneducated little brat who's just trying to be deep. I swear, it happens by itself!

In all seriousness though, there's not much to say about myself that is remarkable. I was never into religion, even when I went to a Catholic school for 3rd and 4th grades. I think my first irreligious thought was that God probably looked nothing like what we oculd imagine, least of all human. From there, I became less and less "Catholic." First I thought myself Agnostic, but then I "took the plunge" and became Atheist (though, I prefer the term Agnostic Atheist, cause I don't believe but I don't make any positive claims about what we can't prove, just what is more likely.)

I'm interested in a lot of things (I'm not obsessive about any one thing).

And that's it. Well, there's more, but I guess you can just figure that stuff out on your own.

There are no absolute morals.



I think I can safely assume that most (if not all) of us here would agree that morals are created by society and nothing else. So really, is it such a leap to assume that there are no absolute… Continue

And you accuse ME of having no morals?

Something came up today during lunch while I was talking with a Satanist friend of mine.



It's common for religious people to claim that atheists have no morals as we have no god to derive them from and have no god to fear in the deviation from our morals. But then if you ask them what they would do if god wasn't there to punish them, there are times when they admit that they would act without caring about others or about the consequences of their actions.



So really, who… Continue
