I'm here for good conversation & new friends. I'm friendly and despite the rumors, I don't care for the taste of human flesh... so don't be shy. P.S. Here for friends. Not looking for love.
Hi, welcome. Here is a theme song for your grand entrance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKYcgMU-nJQ
I'm looking mostly for friendship, stimulating conversation, etc., and this site looks like a good place to find like-minded people. I'm open to dating, but not primarily looking for anything in that respect. I generally identify as a non-theist. "Agnostic atheist" is certainly accurate, but I think a lot of people are confused by what those things mean and often bring their own loaded definitions to the conversation. "Non-theist" is a gentler way of saying pretty much the same thing, and doesn't immediately put theists on guard before a conversation has begun. Politically I'm center-left and consider extremist political views (on any side) to be detrimental to a stable society. I support government efforts to promote and protect rights, freedoms, and responsibilities without advocating for identity politics, and I support a government-based social safety net (including social infrastructure such as roads, education, and healthcare). I'm a vegetarian, but I don't mind that others are omnivorous. I don't smoke, and prefer that people I spend time with don't smoke (as the smell tends to give me headaches). I don't drink alcohol or take drugs, but don't mind their moderate consumption by others.
Reminds me of a joke: Q: What do you call an agnostic with kids? A: A Unitarian.
I've been a nonbeliever for 13 years and a blogger for 8, predominately writing about the impact religious indoctrination has on the brain and society. My background is in entrepreneurship and neurotechnology. I'm an autodidact, an avid reader, creative and quite curious. I've been widowed and divorced, and single by choice for the last 7 years. It's been beneficial and fulfilling. This is a great community. (L) Thanks for the visit.
Just a girl in the world
I need sources.. Especially on “Rod Stewart’s Twilight Zone” ;) All kidding aside though...Superiority is sham.

Hi everyone out there I am a liberal political junkie. I'm not afraid to share my thoughts and opinions.. I'm all inclusive and like the people in my life to be open-minded.. I do not believe in organized religion. It promotes my god is better than your god. I think diversity makes us stronger. Very concerned about the social and political environment of this administration. I'm getting back to living after 5 years of putting my life on hold. I am healthy and looking forward to the future. I've been active mountain climbing, white water canoeing and kayaking, sailing, swimming and motorcycling. I've taught theatre, music and dance to handicapped children and appeared in community theatre. My friends would describe me as independent, spontaneous, sexual, adventurous and spicy. I am meeting new people here all over the States and overseas. I'd like to visit as many places as I can. I live 5 minutes from the airport. I've made arrangements should I find a travel partner. I will relocate for happiness. I am looking for a man who wants a monogamous healthy long term relationship. Some of my friends and relationships have been younger than me. My age range for dating is wide 50-70. My profile pic is August 2017. Feel free to message me.
I was pro Hillary Clinton in the last election. Between trump and Comey attaching her I defended all the accusations being thrown at her. Now I've learned more about the Deep State and how Dems and Pubs both were involved in our Secret Govt. I am now paying closer attention to what politicians stand for.
I teach high school English in a small Title I school in southern Arkansas. Despite the demographics of my school, I see a generation coming that is aware, informed, and open minded. Just as important, they outnumber the sellout Baby Boomers. Change is on the horizon, so the extremist, racist, greedy Evangelicals had better hold on to their hats! Also, I like rhetoric and have no issue with arguments, but I will not engage with people who do not provide evidence to back up their claims. If you want to argue, come ARMED with data.
My political stances come from a combination of intellectual logic and humanistic morality. Many of the political issues we face these days: the economy, domestic and foreign security, health care, care for our military, retired people, children, and the disabled are not just about what is smart for us as a nation long term, but also about our inherent responsibility to care for our planet and the interconnected ecological systems that are involved, but they are also about what allows us to care for the least able in our society in a morally responsible manner. That is the reason you will see me speaking out for "conservatives" as long as their positions involve: guns for everyone, everywhere, all of the time; get the oil out of the ground and into our cars regardless of the impact on the environment or the need to wage wars to get it; fuck you, I've got mine and the rest of you are just lazy economic policies; and supporting morally repugnant candidates who cheat on their wives, sexually abuse both male and female victims, and support whatever their corporate overlords want regardless of the opinions of their constituents. In the event that those conservatives decide to get away from things like trying to regulate my vagina and access to medicines and that limiting access to military grade weapons for both law enforcement and private citizens, then I'll reconsider my support of them.
I'm an old geezer with a dog (Sox) & a cat (Penny). Also a cynical philosopher & a closet comedian.

No. I would not attend. Doctrine, ideology, dogma? I do not wish to be a true believer in any ideology. An atheist organization should renounce all rites, robes, trappings, or "priestly class." The pur0pose of any atheist organization should be only to protect our rights, to socialize, and to pursue common goals.
Hi, 46 Year old born in Qubec, Montreal, Westmount. My family moved to The United States when i was 16 years old. I have a Masters in Biology and curretly work in Cancer Research. I was raised and spent most of my life as a christian. First catholic and later baptist. I am a new Agnostic as of a year. I decided to convert because i have no desire to worship a man made God that i have no proof of existence other than words written by man. I do believe there is an entity or perhaps just the universe its self but i no longer believe in GOD and i work to better my life and resolve issues that arise myself because i realize that i am in control of my destiny.
I'll write a bit of crap here but why don't you get to know me through what I write on the rest of the site? It's what I'm going to do to you. :) I'm a recently divorced, newly minted retiree that has lots of wonderful qualities to share and a few annoying ones you'll pay me not to do. That's one of the annoying ones, BTW - I can be bought off. I have 2 dogs that are officially the best in the world. We voted on it and it was a unanimous 3-0, so there. If I ever manage to take a selfie that isn't cringe worthy I'll post it. I'm not hideous or anything, just a really, really bad photographer and an even worse model. So for now I'm going with a pic of my spirit animal. A long distance, serious relationship is something I'm not looking for. I've done it and found it's just not for me.
easy going artist and animal lover. always into animals and nature. i try to be honest and treat people how they treat me. ive tried many things like drugs, drink and doing crazy stuff in my past. lucky to be here. i consider myself inteligent and real. i hate fake, lies, bullies and i question everything. sometimes i overthink. im dyslexic and quite sarcastic. i have never broken my own moral code even in drunken drug fuelled stupers. ive done stupid things and broken the law but never was into fighting or hurting poor people or nice people. some people are so messed up with such massivly different beliefs i find it hard to belive we are actually the same animal. humans do not surprise me anymore which is scary really. i often look to nature for answers as i feel we as humans have lost touch on many levels. most humans are not nice and care only for themselves above and beond self preservation. i dont care what people think of me. i dont suffer fools gladly and i say what i mean and mean what i say. i love a good chat and a good laugh or good sex . i am outspoken and some say excentric where i think i just like being who i want to be without being pigeon holed. i dont get star struck and im not a sheep. theres a few famous people i really admire and they are david attenborough, george carlin ,ceser milan, barry sheen and bruce lee threw my own choice not theres.i try to live rather than egsist and im a bit of a loner. humans cant handle the truth even if they ask for it. my faverite animal is the elephant followed closely by many more. my faverite colour is black. i like what i like and dont like what i dont like. im also dyslexic .
I like to cook, play guitar & bass, fly drones, take pictures, debate religion, make beer, and blog.
Looking like a "church" is the furthest thing from my mind. Like I said in another thread, we need to stop pining for our past lives and move on. Yes, we're social creatures, so if that's what you need, join a choir, adopt a road, join a chess club, volunteer, etc. Emulating the social structure of church life just isn't in my future...
Seeking intelligent conversation and a laugh or two.
I was born in SLC. My father was a jack Mormon, but my mother was a Congregationalist. I was never impresssed with religion and when I started studying philosophy I found out why. I attended Westminster college and the university of Utah and studied psychology, sociology, anthropology and philosophy. I joined the navy at 27 and spent twenty years working as a power tech. In the process I finished 2 degrees in math and philosophy. I retired in 2008 and became a secondary math teacher. I moved to TX from California to be with my daughter. My wife, unstable at best, died in 2014. I’m a single dad of a beautiful blonde 11 year old girl. She’s my main focus. “Patroclus was a better man than you, but death did not spare him”-Calisthenes
Long Term. Marriage is fine. It is long term. But the entanglements cause issues.
I am a Mostly Straight* guy looking only for a woman who is like-minded about science and religion. (I am looking for a close relationship, but also for friends with similar "lack of belief".) I would love to be in a monogamous relationship, but have no intent to marry again. Been there. Failed at that. I miss simply dating for fun. Fun = travel, museums, good food, good wine, tender love-making, shopping for antiques and collectibles and getting to help my love have the kinds of fun SHE wants. I am not your average sports-loving masculine he-man. I love to bake and cook. I also like photography, bird-watching, and have an appreciation for weird things. I also love trying to be romantic and doing what it takes to make a woman happy. I'm a bit overweight but not really fat. I'm hairy. Blame Dad. I snore. So I'm told. You've been warned. . ................................................................. * Mostly Straight is a relatively new term for a man who sometimes finds other men romantically and/or sexually attractive. Like me, most never date or have sexual relations with another man. Statistically - we are very unlikely to. We just don't like denying that this somewhat more fluid orientation is a part of our make up. . I just wanted to get this revelation out of the way at the start because I tend to get invested in a relationship and then - because I'm terribly honest - this part of my nature slips out, resulting in an end to the relationship.
I despise religion. I despise people who do not respect the choices of others. As a result, I will still be polite, though I have given money to organizations like ACLU. Remember - not all of us are, or should be, warriors. We have our parts to play, but I don't want this to turn into a war.

The enitirety of my teens and much of my 20s.
Lively human, artistic, musical, actor, bookworm, lover of all animals - even the ones most folks don't like, rider of motorcycles, into daily workouts and fitness, somewhat warped sense of humor, easy to hang with ... tend to attract younger people, or those who think young ! And curious - always curious. I find this to be a most refreshing site ! The photos, besides me : a young opossum - one of several I rehabilitated. A lovely mellow cottonmouth I came across during a bicycle ride. One of my cats, reluctantly posing ... And - the wild rhesus monkeys that live along the Silver River.
You must not be getting close enough ...
