Tree-hugging tendencies (I wrote this first because it's my top concern), atheist, antitheist, existentialist, humanist, not spiritual at all, skeptic, rather introvert, more or less socialist, generation X, Quebec-separatist, reluctant suburban, bicycle commuter, soccer and hockey player, cat person.

I speak French, English and a little Spanish. Former graphic artist, now working in the recycling business. I used to print crap, now I recycle it!

By the way, my username, QuidamOutrepont, means something like "Some guy across the bridge". That's because I live in the suburbs of Montreal, on the south side of the Saint Lawrence river, across the Jacques-Cartier bridge.

Do you believe in the big bang theory?
QuidamOutrepont comments on Nov 19, 2018:
If the universe is unlimited in space and time, how can the Big Bang be the beginning of our entire universe? There must have been something before it and there must have been something somewhere else at the same time.
Sick of people telling me I'm horrible for not believing in some gods.

QuidamOutrepont comments on Nov 5, 2018:
The crucifix was put in place in the National Assembly in 1936 by Prime Minister Maurice Duplessis, very right-wing and very close to the Catholic Church. The era he was in power is now known here as the "Grande Noirceur", the Great Darkness. I didn't vote for Legault's party, I agree with his policy on secularism, but I think the crucifix at the National Assembly should be removed.

QuidamOutrepont comments on Oct 31, 2018:
I often compare a business or a corporation to a living organism. Mostly as far as competition or survival of the fittest is concerned. But a whole society? Maybe.

QuidamOutrepont comments on Oct 31, 2018:
I feel that way too and I wonder if I should blame it on ADD or on social media abuse.

QuidamOutrepont comments on Oct 21, 2018:
I have a love-and-hate relationship with politics. One minute, I want to sprint on the campaign trail. And on the minute after that, I want to lock up my neck on the doors of a voting location to protest against that whole electoral gimmick.
Who are you? What can I say? I was bored. :) If anyone wants to add their name to this list, ...

What was the final straw that made you finally leave your faith?
QuidamOutrepont comments on Oct 21, 2018:
When I became an existentialist. When I reached the conclusion that we don't have souls and that there is no form of afterlife whatsoever. No paradise, no hell, no reincarnation, no nothing.
I guess I’m trying to find a common thread with people on here that’s not necessarily faith ...
QuidamOutrepont comments on Oct 21, 2018:
I'm an atheist, but religion (or the absence of) is far from being my greatest worry. I'm far more worried about climate change, poverty and oppression than any kind of religious or spiritual considerations.
What's the best response to "why are you so quiet'?
QuidamOutrepont comments on Oct 21, 2018:
Because I have nothing to say.
Is the world becoming more atheist?
QuidamOutrepont comments on Oct 21, 2018:
Too often, religion is a pilar of tyranny. Trump, Putin, Saudi Arabia...
Is the solution to "hate speech" more speech or less speech?
QuidamOutrepont comments on Oct 12, 2018:
Sometimes, maybe hate might be a wrong answer to a good question. The idea would be to find out what the question is and then to find a less hateful answer.
Unpopular Opinions I know you got 'em, what are they?
QuidamOutrepont comments on Oct 5, 2018:
I hate weddings! It's really not my conception of love and relationship. I find the rituals and traditions arround them annoying and tasteless. If you want to put on a costume, to put on a show in front of an audiance and to get some applauds, become an actor!
Do you love where you live? Why? I'm giving some serious thought to leaving my home Chicago in ...
QuidamOutrepont comments on Oct 5, 2018:
Longueuil, in the suburbs of Montreal here. I like where I live. Easy access to both city life and wilderness. Cost of living is quite affordable, crime rate is rather low, plenty of job opportunities, people are mostly easy going. I enjoy all the seasons we have. North American, European and multi-cultural at the same time.
