I was raised heathen. That is to say religion wasn’t really discussed when I was growing up. I suppose when I was a child I kind of believed in Christianity from mere cultural osmosis, but I dispelled that by age 10 or so.

I’m on here to have some interesting discussions, waste some time and perhaps meet some nice ladies to spend some time with.

I’m a self taught computer programmer. I’ve been doing that professionally for almost 20 years. It’s a hobby as well. I hope to eventually share links to some artwork I’ve done. It’s just a bunch of perverse geometries in motion set to chill wave tunes.

Speaking of music, I like a lot of things, but electronic stuff reall does it for me.

I like Sushi, Indian food and good old fashioned hamburgers.

Where are you seeing these kinds of things? I think I saw someone like this on a college campus back in 94/95, but I don’t recall seeing any since. Maybe I have and simply forgot. If I did, I think I’d just walk by and ignore them. Perhaps I’d give a smile if we caught eyes.

I’m not a scientist, but the idea of human made climate change seems plausible to me and I accept it. If that’s the same thing as being a religious nut case, then... OK.

indirect76 comments on Mar 22, 2019:
You are off base a bit here. I’m an athiest because I don’t believe that a god exists. I’m not deciding there is no god. Others can disagree and even be correct because they may have more information or my logic may be flawed. I’m agnostic because the only thing I know is that I exist. It’s entirely possible that someone else knows that god exists for the same reasons as above.

Can you be atheist and agnostic?
indirect76 comments on Mar 21, 2019:
Depends. People use those words in different ways. The way I use them does not make either mutually exclusive. Some people see agnosticism as a middle ground between believing in a god and believing there is no god. I see a gnostic/agnostic as something addressing knowledge and theism/atheism addressing belief.

I don’t see how religion plays into this at all in the way you are thinking. I think people fairly universally do not want to die. That’s about it.

That was fun, but ultimately pointless. I think it can be reasoned fairly easily, that there is only enough water in the ocean to fill the earth to just around... sea level.
