Just to help me fit into a niche in my future profession (Speech-Language Pathology) with our Spanish speaking citizens.

No, not that Im aware of! My father's dad was biracial (black/white) and that's the closest mixture I have...like a lot of us the rest of the racial mixtures are further along the family tree...like with great-grandparents and such.

Lol! I dont know, Ive met a few nontheists who are just amazing people so maybe he'll cut us some slack!

Hey RT! Good point you raise up there^, the judgment day line will def. be long!...seems kind of tedious too. I just dont see the need for it, he's 'all knowing' so you'd think he'd have a list like Santa keeping track of who's been naughty/nice therefore eliminating an actual 'judgment' day...
Judgment: So does that mean some sinners won't be condemned while some professed believers will be -Or- Is it more of a line where he tells you whether or not you are awarded his coveted stamp of approval?

Definitely determined & brave. Rebellious? I dont know, Im skeptical, not easily led, opinionated, I'd gladly stand alone if it meant standing alone for something of importance to me... so sure, maybe I am!

I just kind of think Im too persuasive to fall into that category, Im usually one that gets things done(or what I want) without making enemies or having to vehemently oppose :)

Oh no! Im a very inquisitive person so when the table is turned I welcome it!
That's something I havent thought about. I'll say, because we have very different perspectives on life our drive has diff. sources. Im not sure I can say one source is better than the other. But I do believe my drive is more efficient because I process things in terms of being realistic not superstitious or in the realms of religious indoctrination. I hope this makes sense, it's completely off the cuff :) I'll give it more thought!

I can only give a thoughtful opinion, just because I dont personally know any black women who classify themselves as feminists. My guess would be that being a feminist would be contradictory to some of their religious beliefs, of which I do think they are aware of...because many Christians are comfortable being part of groups that contradict their religious beliefs. They seem to find ways to justify the differences. It seems that when secular ideology appeals to them they push religion to the side but would never fully admit to the hypocrisy of it.
For ex. they may fight for equal rights in the workplace but at home be completely "submissive" to their significant other just because the bible says so!

Hmm, maybe for some. For me, marriage has never been an ideal situation for my life. Im not saying Im opposed to it, but I really do admire the authenticity of being in a healthy relationship w/o a legal contract...basically I dont think love, commitment, romance and/or loyalty are superior or more valid when found in marriages. Aside from the legalities (rights given to married couples) I think marriage is a completely unnecessary illusion.

Good question! Assuming if I were to get married at all, I'd marry a nonbeliever so being married in a church would have no significance to us.

You are right, some Rastafarians don’t believe that God, Haile Selassie I, died 30 years ago, they believe that he didn’t died at all, he went to heaven. Thanks for the add.

Right! I understand that, I was just unaware that there was confusion about the stereotype.

Hi! I just find it a little interesting that there seems to be some confusion about what a stereotypical atheist is...Obviously for us at least, being black and nonreligious is a rarity!

Lol I know right!

Happy birthday from a surround-sound-typical atheist :)

ha, thanks for clarifying. Then, you are... Here: two-thirds stereotype... female-white-rich country. Have a great weekend!

hi, RT, what's the stereotypical atheist (in your opinion)?
