About Me:
I'm autistic (Asperger's Syndrome) and learning disabled (dyslexia). I also suffer from Major Depression, the chemical variety, which means that the recurrent depressions have nothing to do w/my life's circumstances; I have no control over the depression, though medication does help (some) ... I'm an autodidact - of course, only I could have the patience to teach me! My interests are mathematics and world history. I am teaching myself Latin. I like dogs. My favorite bird is the buzzard. My favorite plant is the cactus. I like classical music. This says something about me, but I'm not sure what it is: I love to watch cooking programs (especially Julia Child), but I'm not at all interested in cooking.

The religion you left
Catholic

I don't believe in God, and I can't pretend that I do, even if the money is good (and, oh, boy, is it!) ...

The question is - Do we have free choice?

I have never been able to give an unqualified answer to this question. 

However, I believe that it is a question that one must at least attempt to answer because the whole character of one's philosophy is very much dependent upon that answer. In other words, I…
