Many thanks for the welcome and suggestion. Big fan of those subjects, although I assume we all are in this community.

Thanks Terry.  I'm still trying to figure out what I am.  As a scientist I so far see no evidence of God.  If there were proof....not faith, ha ha, then I would accept that fact.  All religion seems to me to be a bunch of mumbo jumbo.  I don't doubt that there was a Jesus, a Mohammed, or a Buddha.  Perhaps they were the same person.  But nowhere in any of their words or documents that followed their existence anything other than you just have to "believe".  I see beauty in the cosmos but I also see terrible and horrific destructive forces going on with complete objectivity.  So, I suppose it is clear that I am a non-theist but am I an agnostic because I am open to evidence or proof?  My family thinks I am nuts and going to hell but here are two things that led me to where I am.  There can be good without God and there is horrible suffering in the world.  So, what does believing in a God do?  It gives one a psychological crutch to deal with the awful things that life can deliver and it also gives one a false hope that there is something after death.  So here I am.

Thank you, Doctor. I'm happy to be a member. I look forward to participating in any discussion that I might be able to intellectually contribute to. You have yourself another military member to add some perspective if need be. 8-D

Thank you very much for your welcoming message.  I will try to get familiarized with the site and then will try to choose some topics close to my heart.

Thanks for inviting me.  It's always good to be a part of a community that can challenge me intellectually and serve as a place to converse with like minded individuals.  It's something hard to find in every day life living in America so it's great that there is an enclave of people devoted to rationality, science, evidence, and logic out there in a sea of intellectual dishonesty and irrational belief.

Thanks for the comment on my webpage. I actually have a picture of me in with all my cat pictures. I wish there was a way to sort them.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for the great invitation Terry!  I'm looking forward to going over all the groups (noticed there's about a thousand!) and seeing which I'd like to be involved in.  You might note from my profile that I'm into comedy, but I'll certainly be looking into the Origins group as well!

Dave.

Thank you. Based on what is known today, I see religion as a manifestation of human stupidity. I have been fortunate to have spent most of my adult life in academic environments but am horrified when I watch the news, especially in an election year. I can not believe that our government is still perpetuating this fraud.

Hello again Professor Meaden. I used to have an all black cat but he died at 19 years old not too long ago. I have yet to get another pet. I make those Lolcat pictures at the http://lolcats.icanhascheezburger.com/

site. My Lolcats have been featured on the front page of the site a few times.

Soon I hope to get another pet. I use the Nexus as my Facebook. Are you on Facebook?

Hope to talk with you later! Have a nice day!

I like your new profile picture! Have a good day Professor!

Took your suggestion and joined the Origin's group.  Thank you for the invite!

Thanks for the invite. Interesting note below on the recalcitrance of Mormon's. I was converted at eight, and played the role thinking I would find real faith. Never did, but I sure tried, and I defended the Church. You bet.

Thanks for the welcoming :) Looking forward to spending time on this site.

Thank you very much. Looking forward to interacting with other like minded folks!

So sorry to respond so late, but life happens.

You're right about the recalcitrance of the average Mormon.
In my case, I never could make myself actually believe any of the doctrine, so it isn't so much that I listened or didn't listen.  I just decided to stop playing the role-playing game and be myself.
