"Right, and that's been established. The problem is that you defined aggressiveness as NOT excluding sensitivity. Being politically correct IS being sensitive ie, acceptance and tolerance. So by your own admittance with your…"

3rd year med student. I'm interested in Neurology and would eventually like to be a Neuro-Intensivist/Interventional Neurologist. So it should be no surprise then that I enjoy neuroscience and the evolution of the nervous system and brain.
Why are you here?
Why you left your religion.
I'm Sikh by identity. It's a philosophy for me, much like any other religion. It just never made sense to me that there was something watching us all the time and yet we couldn't find evidence for that mode of thought.
I'm also not against religion (except when it breaks the 1st amendment), it's just not for me. If religion benefits someone else, so be it. I don't tend to mock people for it either, unless it's called for.
To me, religions are nothing more than a placebo.
