What happens when you leave a religion?  Extreme relief that you are not living a lie, Freedom of thought, freedom to live your life according to your own morals rather than primitive repressive diktats from the morally vacuous clergy, Freedom from bigoted sycophantic judgmental zealots, Freedom from ignorance, Freedom to explore and wonder at the nature and beauty of our universe free from the need to invoke Gods or blame demons. To be free from primitive superstitions and rituals, Freedom to wear what you want or to read what you want.  To eat what you want, when you want and how you want, without fear of being ostracized and condemned by the religiously brainwashed.  To have hope for the future, free from prostration to ignorance, free from the disciples of doom and most of all freedom from guilt trips.  Did I mention FREEDOM? The freedom you get from secular democracy.

Does anyone know the current status of Tiktaalik (fishapod)? When it was first described, it was thought to be a transitional fossil sharing traits of both fish and tetrapods .  In a subsequent article it was no longer considered a transitional form. If anyone can give me any info I would appreciate it. Thank you in advance.

Too bad the Cowardly Agnostic posts disappeared.  I thought there were some very interesting comments.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 21, 2012 at 10:42pm

Joseph P, I was not aware of the process of deleting remarks and the consequences. Thanks for the information. 

Comment by Joseph P on October 21, 2012 at 9:36pm

Perhaps he dropped the last name from his profile or changed it entirely.  Lots of people do that.  Crap-loads of Daniels around here.

It was a discussion thread called, "Is Agnosticism cowardly or a cop-out?"  And, now it's gone.

I hate when people do that.  Yeah, he started the discussion thread, but the 30 or 40 comments that others added got nuked along with it.

It's like a discussion I was having with Michael Pianko, over in Atheist Singles.  It was a very productive conversation that others might have benefited from, and then he wiped all 20 or 30 posts he had made to the discussion thread, making my responses fairly meaningless.

Susan, thanks.

Nope, not that Daniel.  Daniel Hunt.
