KillerDiller replied to Austin Hunt's discussion What age did you become an atheist/agnostic and why?
"I was 15 when I first used the word "atheist" after having been raised in a very Christian environment. This was after I had struggled my way through several realizations over the previous 3 years. These realizations were roughly: 1. I…"

KillerDiller replied to Andy Reid's discussion Young people - Are you having children? Why or why not?
"So sorry to read all this. I hope you are able to find the social support you need, whether it be through forums like this, family, or new friends/romances. I want to tell you not to give up hope for finding romantic companionship so readily, but I…"

KillerDiller replied to Andy Reid's discussion Young people - Are you having children? Why or why not?
"I'm 30, married, and do not intend to ever have children. I made this decision when I was about 14 and never wavered at all. I knew I wanted a career and the freedom to pursue the things I enjoy throughout my adult life--travel,…"

KillerDiller replied to Daniel W's discussion What does it mean? A drug that reduces racist reactions.
"Nice summary, and I definitely agree with your points about biology vs. social construction. The answer to any nature/nurture debate is nearly invariably "it's both." I don't know that it would be advisable for most people to…"

KillerDiller replied to David Raphael's discussion Theravada Buddhism, atheism, and clearing up some misconceptions
"Thank you for these clarifications. I've been meaning for a long time to study both Buddhism and Taoism in more depth, but have sometimes been scared away by the fact that these philosophies are frequently lumped in with western religions."

KillerDiller replied to deja hodge's discussion i find it weird that...
"Yes, as Nerd's article suggests, "supernatural" experiences like those you described can result from our brains trying to make sense of random firing patterns of neurons. In actuality, what causes these firing patterns are things like…"

KillerDiller replied to deja hodge's discussion How do you have an atheist wedding?
"Many states allow someone to get a license to marry a couple for a single day. My husband and I were married by his father, who is by no means a minister. I have friends who were married by their friend, etc."

KillerDiller replied to Rob Robinson's discussion Atheism and Education
"There is a correlation between IQ and atheism. It is also more common to see "out" atheists in higher education. But I'm a bit confused by your wording here. "[I]t's really hard not to look down on a person with no…"

KillerDiller replied to mistercliff's discussion Atheist characters
"Brian on "Family Guy" is an admitted atheist."

KillerDiller replied to paul babcock's discussion Birther question
"I was living in Illinois at the time and Obama was elected as the senator from Illinois to serve in the national congress before he ran for president."
Apr 20, 2011
KillerDiller replied to Ara Tidwell's discussion A letter to all librarians! Please email your local librarian a copy of this!
"Sorry, but that's just not true. You could arguably suggest that religious people suffer from delusions and hallucinations (but it would be an uphill battle considering the DSM takes a person's culture into account when making diagnoses).…"

KillerDiller replied to LarryL's discussion America vs the World: Quality of Life
"Obama has managed to reform healthcare in the U.S. a bit, but the bill was pretty crippled as it navigated the two-party system. Essentially, trying to please everyone leads to reform that moves at a glacial pace. America will not have the…"

KillerDiller replied to LarryL's discussion America vs the World: Quality of Life
"I live in New England and have to say that New Hampshire is by no means a liberal utopia. People tend to think that Vermont and New Hampshire are the same state, but this is far from the case. New Hampshire is arguably the most conservative of the…"

KillerDiller replied to Vangelis Stamatopoulos's discussion Sam Harris is not an Atheist according to the AFA
"Sam Harris really says that? I guess I'll have to ask him what he would consider scientific evidence on the subject. (FWIW, I'm not doubting you, I am unfamiliar with Harris's work. I have only read Dawkins and Hitchins.)"
Jan 26, 2011
KillerDiller replied to Vangelis Stamatopoulos's discussion Sam Harris is not an Atheist according to the AFA
"There is not credible or reliable evidence for the experiences of most mental processes, yet unless you are a strict behaviorist, you assume that they occur. For example, what would a purely objective measure of excited anticipation look like? We…"

KillerDiller replied to Park Bierbower's discussion OBAMA CARE
"Agree 100%, though if we are talking about a choice between Obama's plan and the healthcare system as it looked in 2008, then I'm with Obama."
