Hello everyone

I'd say mostly indifferent. A large part of the population is de facto atheist, but doesn't give it enough thought to really be called that, and are still members of the church. They were made members at birth, and it comes with some benefits  (church weddings, ability to be godparent, etc), and people just don't give it enough thought to bother leaving, it's just tradition. Some are actually religious, of course, but people's faith is not very visible in society.

I love your brief comments (the fact that they are brief). You hit the nail on the head regarding my post on reading newspapers.

Re: Memes - My definition is very straightforward. A "meme" is simply some information which is shared by any number of people. Something as basic as a song that you are hearing in your head is a meme. Books, articles, speeches, and even these sentences are memes. A descriptive term for a meme is cultural information.

Religions, including cults, or any type of ideology, are spread memetically, i.e. information passed from person to person via some medium.

I think a lot of confusion about memes comes from the fact that people tend to read a lot more into it than necessary.  The analogy made by Richard Dawkins between memes and genes is inexact but useful.  It is clear that languages, religions, and culture in general do in fact evolve, so I think the idea of memes is accurate.

I was studying so I would understand why or why not I believed in a god and have something to throw back at those religious zealots when they try to attack me, it annoying.

Thanks for your comment to my blog. I don't think a nutritionist would give me any more information I don't already know--and charge me a lot of money!

One of the best things you can do is keep reading. It slowly begins helping you disinfect yourself and reorient you mind to the world of reality. Second, get involved with freethought groups in your community, it really helps with the feeling of isolation when you see 50 other people who think like you. It also gives you an outlet for creative energies that formerly were used in church or religion.

Glad to hear you are reading Sex and God. I hope you find it challenging and informative. Let me know what you think when you are finished. Don't get too hung up on the duck sex part! lol

My apologies for the late reply. I wish A/N worked better with Chrome so I didn't have to pinch my nose and switch to IE to reply to messages and upload posts.

I live in Toronto, which being the largest city in Canada, is used to heathens and all flavours of religious and non-religious denominations, so I feel ideologically safe here. Although secular humanism is not as far advanced as it is in some European countries, at least I feel a lot safer than I did in Mexico when it comes to openly disclosing my dislike for all things supernatural.

Having said that, there are parts of Canada which are much like the Bible Belt, but they're easy to sidestep.

What's it like where you live?
