Darin Cowan commented on Joan Denoo's group Politics, Economics, and Religion
"Your ham call was probably KL7DLZ then :)  Alaska almost always starts KL7. Oh, I have been in the deep pits of clinical depression and have thus had considerable time to think about why I'm alive and whether or not I should even bother…"

Darin Cowan commented on Joan Denoo's group Politics, Economics, and Religion
"For most of my adult life, I have been of the opinion that there is no "purpose" of life.  Life just is. Seeking a "purpose" for life, I think, detracts from the experience.  A person can waste their life looking for…"

Darin Cowan replied to Kevin Morgan's discussion Proselytizing via QSL card in the group Amateur Radio Atheists
"I am not a proseletyzer for atheism, at least on amateur radio.  I keep that stuff off my radio blog, and off the air.  There's plenty of other fora for arguing about superstitions or the lack thereof :)   In my house, however,…"

Darin Cowan replied to Kevin Morgan's discussion Proselytizing via QSL card in the group Amateur Radio Atheists
"The only thing that gets me about the superstition cards is that the people who send them are usually the ones who go completely buggo if they receive a card that mentions some other superstition.  "

Darin Cowan replied to Kevin Morgan's discussion Proselytizing via QSL card in the group Amateur Radio Atheists
"If he did, it would sure put the issue to rest. :) Before my amateur radio time I collected postcards, so for me QSL cards is kind of an extension of that. I send cards on every first contact unless the person is in Canada/US and only takes direct…"

Darin Cowan replied to Kevin Morgan's discussion Christian radio nets in the group Amateur Radio Atheists
"I don't hear very well, so I don't do a lot of sideband. I'm mostly in PSK and digital modes. It's rare to find a religious blowhard there, and I've never understood why. Perhaps being able to use a computer+radio combo is…"

Darin Cowan replied to Kevin Morgan's discussion Christian radio nets in the group Amateur Radio Atheists
"It's not hams though... it is, to quote an old cartoon character, "loud mouthed schnooks" It only takes a few blowhards shouting to sound like a cacophony of millions."

Darin Cowan replied to Kevin Morgan's discussion Christian radio nets in the group Amateur Radio Atheists
"Part of the reason is that radio amateurs are, on average, older than the general population, and there is an increase in religiousity with age. Outside of the USA, I haven't noticed that radio amateurs are especially religious. If they are,…"

Darin Cowan replied to Kevin Morgan's discussion Proselytizing via QSL card in the group Amateur Radio Atheists
"Personally, I don't care if someone has some God-whalloping message on their QSL card. My view is that the card is first a confirmation of contact, and second a personal expression of the person on the other end. If they're a Bible-banger,…"
