I keep toying with "non-theist," but it has the ring of "you are trying to fake me out, when you are really an atheist."
I really want to be called the Anti-Christ, but that doesn't work very well either.
I am old enough now that I may try "Reprobate," that has a certain ring to it.
Booklover, I usualyy agree...I think less of thise who call themselves by a religious name. It makes me think that they are unthinking followers who probably think they are better than others because thier religion says so. I also think they probably justify their 'sins' by thinking, ahead of time, that they are forgiven anyway, so WTF?!
Right VikingDon! If someone is doing something nice with an ulterior-motive, they obviously aren't being selfless. If I do something nice, it's because I WANT to, plain and simple!
I am with you, but only when they use it to show how wonderful they are, which is probably any time that person feels the need to reveal moral superiority over the soulless. Hmmm, sounds like I totally agree with you. Ha.
Dude, who needs an other-defined rejection as a core identity?
Couldn't agree more, I'm a skeptic secular humanist and a a scientific materialist.
