I am glad you like my Archaeopteryx. It represents two things for me. Of course, it represents evolution being an ancestor of present day birds and it represents one of my hobbies--bird watching.

I posted the bulk of this on another thread, but wanted to add some context separately.
I finally confronted my faith and embraced the fact of my atheism late last August, 2012. Days after I revealed my "epiphany" to a few friends who knew me from another message board, my sister died from Lou Gehrig's Disease (which pissed her off because she hated catching a disease from someone she never f---ed).
