Ralph Oswald commented on Shamari's blog post 'So lonely as an atheist...'
"Shamari, glad to meet you! I'm kind of fortunate that my best friend at work is agnostic, so she doesn't become offended when I rant. There is at least one other atheist at work, too, but he only works part-time.  I'm also…"

Profile Information

Your Religious Status
About Me:
OK, this is just some generic info grabbed from one of my other profiles. But basically it just a bunch of labels that people like to apply to the boxes we fit.
Composer, Musician, Atheist, Secular Humanist, Philosopher (ha ha! Yeah, right!), Socialist. Divorced.
Writing, recording and performing music. Reading books, mainly Science Fiction and Historical Fiction. Not really all that much into Non-fiction, unless it's about music production or performing. That said, I am looking at some NF in an effort to inform (but not to color or define) my views.
I've know for several years that I was atheistic (not as a belief system, but as a lack of belief in any theistic deity and p.o.v.), but it wasn't until I met my ex-wife that I honestly defined or labeled myself as an atheist. I also find that I am becoming increasingly anti-theistic. Religions have sent millennia, proving that they are destructive to society, to our world, and to humanity.
That should be enough for anyone to know.
Relationship Status
Why are you here?
I want to connect with people who think in similar terms as I do. To talk to people who don't need to attribute those ideas that we don't necessarily comprehend to a deity.
The religion you left
Catholic, Was never a part of one
Why you left your religion.
"God" is a creation of man, borne out of man's lack of understanding of natural forces. I need empirical evidence to believe in something. Religion does not offer proof of anything; all the religious can offer is: "You can't prove that 'God' doesn't exist" and "It's about faith." I have faith in mankind's ability to overcome adversity and transcend many of our shortcomings.

Richard Muller, Previously one of the scientists who was skeptical of climate change... changes his tune.

Posted on October 25, 2011 at 9:22pm 0 Comments

Just a few things I wanted to share. I find so many people I interact with about the effects of global warming say, "So you really believe all that bs? Frankly, yes! And now so does one of the scientists who previously said he was skeptical of the research that had been done and of the data others had found.
