My latest question to any potential date is "On a scale of 0-10, how religious do you think you are? 0 being an unapologetic atheist and 10 being the Taliban."

What's your cut-off before you question wanting to invest more time in that person? I mean, as an atheist, I have a seriously difficult time respecting anyone that believes their imaginary friend created the Earth and somehow cares about everyone on it.

As long as they are not zealots, religion is not really a deal breaker for me. I am more interested in how her heart beats as a person.


I can handle a 2.

I’m always trying to find reasons to accept people instead of reasons to exclude them.


I am a 100% Atheist, always have been, always will be and I will never ever apologise for being so.

I guess I could accept a woman who was a 5 or less, as long as she expressed the attitude that she was tolerant and independent about doing her church and religion on her time and not on our time together. Of course, if her church was Unitarian, we would go together and share a lot of things in common.


I feel like Michelle Obama, for example, is probably around a 3 and yet I would spend time with someone like her. That kind of person may believe in some kind of God, but also understands science. Politics is more important than religion to me; someone who acts and thinks the way I do and yet goes to church once a week will probably get a pass on that.

Anything over a 1, I haven't got the time left on this rock to deal with it!

If I were dating a theist, it might work out, if they're at church on Sunday morning. I can still hang out here on Sunday mornings with my farting dog and cup if coffee.
I don't care it's the way we interact with each other and the world. I loved my daughter when she believed in Satan Claus.
She never tried to get me to join her in her ridculous belief. That's the only thing that would disqualify a woman.

0 and i think i could handle anyone up to 5 on that scale. i have religious friends and family so i can handle certain common stuff that's said, i feel like.


I don’t see why this should even be a question. If a person is a good person and you get along, have things is common, are fond of each other and give each other respect why would religion be a problem? We all have some peculiar things we believe in or do, nobody is perfect.
