"Here I had to vote for some local offices that I had no idea, even after googling them, of really what they stood for (I ended up voting against the one who said he went to a Christian university like it was a good thing. Other than that, just two…"

Chad Kreutzer replied to Dr. Allan H. Clark's discussion Spufford's rant against atheists
"The problem with the picture he sets forth is that it is true for a very small fraction of Christian intellectuals and leaders. Most people of faith--including most of the leadership--whether Christian or some other religion, really do honestly…"

"Or International Talk Like a Pirate Day or Towel Day. There's even a Darwin day. All these days are well and good and fun, but I feel we ought to be careful of self segregation. To borrow some language from the Christians: Yes, we do need to…"

Chad Kreutzer commented on Alan Perlman's blog post Straddling the fence on superstition

About Me:
I gradually moved out of Christianity starting in High School, but I didn't actually start to self identify as a non-believer till 2003 when one night, after I had been reading "The Science of Good and Evil" by Michael Shermer, I was laying in my bed and I finally said to myself "there is no god." (at that point, I guess you could have called me a Deist) It was oddly liberating to finally admit it, and all the cognitive dissonance collapsed within my mind and the compartmentalization disappeared. Now, 10 years later I'm back in school pursuing Biology degree with the intention of following through to become a scientist and do my part to add to the sum of human knowledge.
