"Well, you can add me to list of conservative atheists you know, and luckily there is at least one other here at my office that I can talk to!"

Zach Winkler commented on Rob Klaers's blog post 'Low IQ & Conservative Beliefs Linked to Prejudice'
"I don't know how biased this article may or may not be, but I would be careful of generalizing any political ideology, not for the sake of fear of insulting someone, but for the sake of just sounding like your closed-minded or extremely biased.…"

Zach Winkler replied to krystal ellis's discussion '"Where do you get a moral compass from if you don't have a god?"'
"Morality has been proven to evolve, as it has been seen in Chimpanzees (and perhaps a few other organisms), but regardless of all that, morality is not even technically a real thing, rather an opinion. Everyone has morals, yet when someone’s…"

Zach Winkler replied to Nerdy Keith's discussion 'Is religion the root of all homophobia?'
"Yes you can, religion EVOLVED! Religion is (as all things) a natural thing. Religion has nothing to say over Biology, but Biology has plenty to say about religion."

Zach Winkler replied to Nerdy Keith's discussion 'Is religion the root of all homophobia?'
"Completely agree, I do! All religion does is exaggerate and institutionalizes already existing cultural occurances and biases."

"People have this same problem when they state that "Science" is for "Atheism" or that "Science" is "anti-theistic"."

Zach Winkler replied to Nerdy Keith's discussion 'Is religion the root of all homophobia?'
"I agree with your last post, except for the last part..... Religion has not been around forever, it first evolved when humans began evolving culture as we know it (probably 100,000 to 50,000 years ago). Did you just mean "forever" as in…"

"I am against Obama (I think he has been a terrible president), but this is pretty funny. I am generally conservative, but Republicans can (are often are) completely rediculous with their beliefes and actions. Why should Obama's religion even…"

Zach Winkler replied to Nerdy Keith's discussion 'Is religion the root of all homophobia?'
"You are correct, butother species do not have the ability to develope cultures, which regulates behaivor. If you have a family member, it would be logical for evolution to push you to get that family member to reproduce (passing on their genes (and…"

Zach Winkler replied to Nerdy Keith's discussion 'Is religion the root of all homophobia?'
"That is a perfect point though, that the fact that it still exist makes it a fit trait. But prehaps I mis-spoke in the first place. Most evidence points to a non-genetic origination for homosexuality. The cause of it is improper (if you want to use…"

Zach Winkler replied to Nerdy Keith's discussion 'Is religion the root of all homophobia?'
"Maybe I do put a-little too much emphasis on instinct as a mechanism against homophobic behavior. It may be more about cultural forces, pushing for norms (but I see that as an instinct too, so it is kind-of the same thing). I still see homosexuality…"

Zach Winkler replied to Nerdy Keith's discussion 'Is religion the root of all homophobia?'
"No, religion is just expressing (what I think to be) is an innate phobia of homosexuality that all humans have. When we see that others in our group are homosexual, we see that they are a-lot less likely to pass on their genes, thus making them…"

Zach Winkler replied to Violet Chartreuse's discussion 'I need debate help... Does good come from God?'
"I am so tired of hearing about Santorum, he is a terrible person and I can not believe that he has made it as far as he has in the current election! It makes me a-little ashamed to be an American. Sorry for not reading all the other post, but I did…"

About Me:
Hello! I am a very strong anti-religious person. I am currently in college studying Biochemistry. I enjoy science and am very interested in the process of evolution and evolutionary mechanisms.

Why are you here?
My friend said I should do so.... Yep. Maybe this will ease some of my ever-growing frustration towards religious ignorance that bombards me daily.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
The simple reason that there is no scientific evidence supporting the existence of a deity, giving no initial reason for the "belief" in one. Science shows use what exist, not faith.
