Superfluous in my opinion.
I love science and have two degrees in its area. I have contributed to the open source software area. Because of my like of science, I read its journals and websites. I also love pedaling a bike as much as I can. I have hiked/biked/kayaked/camped ten of the USA National Parks, a couple of them more than once.
I am a skeptical, liberal, adventurous, and rational atheist. My interests include hiking, cycling, mountain biking, movies, piano, science, live theater, and road trips. I will race you and arm wrestle you and lose gracefully every time. I am as serious as Mark Twain and more fun than a box of puppies. My kids are grown and launched. They've turned out great. No grandbabies yet, not even close. The relationship I seek is mutually caring, spontaneous, and romantic. You know... best friends, lovers, you've got my back/I've got yours, and so on. I've had disappointments but I'm not jaded. You don't have be Peter Sagan, but it would be nice if you enjoy an occasional bike ride. And you don't have be Carl Sagan, but intelligence, curiosity about the world, and literacy matter. Am I a Sapiophile? Perhaps, but one does not require an advanced degree be smart and well-read. Autodidacts are sexy! . I didn't think I'd need "rule outs" on my profile, but the sheer volume of messages from married and other not-so-nice men who think they can bully me into changing my stance on certain ethical and political positions says otherwise. Therefore let's make a few things clear right now and, by the way, the following exclusions are immutable: **GO AWAY** if you are married, have a girlfriend, are polyamorous, or believe in astrology and/or Bigfoot. No Tяumpsters, Truthers, Christians, hookup artists, copy-pasters, gun aficionados, consciousness-altering drug users (including WEED), alcoholics, or purveyors of swamp land in Florida. P.s. I am not opposed to cannabis legalization (not at all!), but I do not want heavy users around me.
Fascinating! A Pompeii exhibit recently opened here in my town. I plan to go check it out tomorrow. https://www.reaganfoundation.org/library-museum/special-exhibits/pompeii/
Recent freethinker for the past 2-3 years, wanting connections with less religious people. I steadily turned into an agnostic/atheist as I realized how consistently illogical the arguments around me were getting in religious groups. To be fair, they really didn't appreciate the growing number of C'thulu references I would keep making during religious conversations :) Stuff I like to do: watch new and creative shows read 2/3 of a book and kick myself about the last part for years Try to get myself to explore a new topic every few months (currently, I’m learning accounting basics, with plans for re-learning piano by January) play board games visit a new state or region (currently at 16/50, plenty to get to!) Sit at local bars and chat with whoever shows up I am here looking for community and exploration. I want to find people who want to enjoy exploring the world and it's awesome self-created curiosities. I enjoy hiking, reading, discussing new ideas or trying new things that I haven't experienced yet. There's too much stuff to find in the world, and I can't wait to find more! Care to suggest anything?
Understanding, (good listener,) and compassionate. I like to live and let live. I have a subtle sense of humor. That is, I am not a clown but can come up with something good sometimes. (I also get the rolling eyes and groans sometimes.) I think that there must be a higher consciousness, but I also think that religion is mostly mythology.
Hate speech is like the finger. It is suppose to be showing up to a person. But that is just to easy. The solution to easy thoughtless speech is not necessarily less speech but thoughtful speech. 1 hate + 1 hate = 2 hate. It may not always be possible, but the only thing that can probably negate hate is love.
I’ve been to many places and have witnessed all levels of humanity but I lived most of my life in around Virginia which considers itself as the south so therefore you might know what level social intelligence that I encounter on a regular basis. I’m on my 2nd marriage. My first wife’s family are devout which is one the main reasons why I’m no longer involved in that relationship. My current wife grew up around borderline extremist but only believes in and doesn’t see the rest being all that important. I’ve also worked in corrections and can guarantee anyone that I’ve met the most religious people there. Other than that I’d have to write a book ( by the way most of my post will probably feel like one )
Depends of what level of bias you’re hoping to achieve?

american specific or general world wide
Looking for other non- believers to connect with- platonically or otherwise since religion and conservative go hand and hand down here. I live on Florida's Treasure Coast but have roots in the midwest; specifically Kentuckiana where I spent most of my childhood. Any sci-fi fans here?
I want someone who is will to be honest, respectful,loyalty and faithful for each other
Without coffee no new day in life
Hey there. I just turned 50 but feel a lot younger. Well most days. Lol. I'm an easy going guy with a big heart. Somewhat on the sensitive side yet pretty tough also. I'm divorced and have 50/50 custody of my 2 kids who are 11 and 13. I like a wide variety of things from concerts to sporting events to just hanging out on the couch and cuddling with my girl. Also I'm pretty dang funny if I do say so myself. And I do. Ha.
Oh yes. It's unreal. But you know.....Trump.
I enjoy socializing. I enjoy swing dancing and enjoy teaching one on one. I believe in putting the lady first. I do not believe in God, gods, devils, demons, spirits, ghosts. I don't believe the dead can communicate with the living. So, there you have it. I like wood working. I like building things with wood like, furniture which includes tables, desks, cabinets, etc. I also like creating art pieces with wood like lamps and small jewelry boxes. I joined this sight because I am tired of hearing Christians making excuses for their all-powerful, all knowing god's inabilities, and my hope is to be able to have others I can have more in common with.
Yes, I have been asked by religious friends where my sense of morality comes from. My response is: It comes from my own sense of well being. What I find interesting about them asking me that question though, about morality is, when I ask them to define what they mean when they say morality, they haven't got a clue about what they are asking me. So, on a question such as this, I want to make sure about what they are actually asking me before I can even begin to answer their question. And, most of the time, they haven't got a clue what they are asking. I can also tell them that if their morality comes from authority, pronouncements and threats of punishments, and eternal torture in hellfire, then they themselves, have no morality or sense of morality, because what if they decide like we atheist that all these threats are not real? Will they they go around killing, raping and stealing? I have actually become more moral since I no longer believe in such religious, nonsense. I have become kinder and more sympathetic toward my fellow being, and even kinder to animals since I left religion behind.
I was born and raised in St Louis. I went to Catholic school and was even an altar boy in grade school. No, I was never molested by a priest; there was one nun who could've had her way with me, lol.I try to have a sense of humor, but once in awhile people get offended. So if anyone is ever butthurt over something I post, I will apologize. I like watching football (Cowboys), baseball (Cardinals) and hockey (Blues).I love nature, fishing, floating and camping. I have a house full of antiques. I am hoping to make some new friends.
I just prayed about it, lol
I am noticing that depending on my mood at the time how I describe myself changes. So.. basics. Left leaning (heavily) in politics. Divorced father of a 16 year old. Trial lawyer (I've let this profession largely define me, as I totally enjoy what I do for a living) Bookish extrovert who enjoys (too much) islay single malt.
I am totally stealing this!

E Pluribus Unum! I'm a relatively conservative guy. I don't care for liberal progressive politics and the politically correct culture. Identity politics have a way of dividing people, and I question most of those in positions of authority and power regardless of political party. George Washington was an independent, so if that was good enough for him it is for me as well. I don't identify with the local group, my language is liberty, and to be more precise individual liberty. Live and let live. Here are a few groups I host on this site- g:71 g:447
For some reason I didn't get a notification for this post...
I'm building a mystery. Also, I'm a mermaid.
She's way way way too skinny for me, but I love the pose, the expression on her face, the clothes and the bike. Do you know where she got that bike? 😂
**Sorry, not dating. Here to develop friendships.**
You've found me! Or.. I've found you..! Having spent some years alone, I'm interested in the possibility of meeting a compatible/sensual woman and planning a future. Meanwhile, am primarily motivated by the concept of social justice on/at a national and international(ist) basis. Instinctively, I have an aversion to capitalism/greed and the sickness that results from its domination of the human condition. Like many, am introverted/extroverted..depending on the comfort zone. . we'll see. Sometimes.. We may meet that exact opposite and.. Still click.! As the years go along... Am an avid GAA supporter, especially hurling. Presently, I live by by the sea.
I'm laid back in personality. Enjoy a great laugh but enjoy making others laugh more. A calm and thinking "old soul". Love going to art shows, video games, animal lover, nerd stuff, ect. Please, ask me for more, not enjoying writing this part at the moment. Oh yeah, I'm in a comedy "pro-wrestling show called, Doomsday Wrestling! So, there is that. Cheers! :)
Always been an animal lover, I love to read, movies, tv, outdoorsy not so much, athletic uh no. I love the out doors but can't really get out and hike or ski or mountain climb as everybody on every dating site does. I love sunrises and sunsets and gazing at the stars. The scent of new mown hay and Russian Olives in the Spring. I consider myself agnostic towards religion and most things. My motto is " it could happen" rather than no, nope, never. I don't believe or disbelieve anybody's religion myths. However I do draw the line at flat earthers, we never landed on the moon, there is no global warming, etc. Ridiculous as is our current president.
She is so pretty and shiny!
I am educated, fun (sometimes funny) and love to travel. My family knows I’m agnostic, my brother freely admits to being atheist. I don’t advertise it to my friends though, unless they ask (and sometimes I have to lie about it). I live in South Carolina where you find more Baptist churches than you do anything else. I’m here to make new friends and maybe even a romantic connection. I love to travel and have been trying to move out of South Carolina for years. I promised my son I would wait until he graduated from HS, so I wait. Sigh 😔 I can’t ever decide which I like the most, beach or mountains. I love them both. Midnight strolls on the beach and hikes through the woods are both great places to hide a body. 😉 I’m a bit nerdy. I listen to audio books and podcasts, watch cooking shows and diy. Love the smell of wood and if I could live in my dream home it would be in a log cabin. I am a girly girl and love to wear pretty dresses, high heels, and costume jewelry. High maintenance? Maybe.
I thought I would update my bio since I was told it was sketchy. I work in DC in education, born and raised in NYC. I am a city person for the most part but love to vacation at the beach and the mountains. I have travelled over seas quite a bit and I am ready to start up again. I am someone who reads a lot! Usually have 3 things going at one time, non fiction, fiction and a magazine. Just depends on where I am in my house and which book I left there! I have no interest in right wing politics and try to stay far away from Trumpeter! Working on eating a whole foods plant based diet, it is a work in progress. I enjoy art and architecture and would like to go to Chartres and Angkor Watt. Look it up if you don't know what and where they are! I am very friendly and sometimes it is mistaken for flirty, or so I have been told. I have to figure that out since I am naturally outgoing!
not too complicated!
