Do you have a favorite freethought 'hero'?

Currently it is PZ Myers (whose book The Happy Atheist I recently read), but there are certainly others. I'm the first to admit I have a lot of learning to do!

What's the stupidest religious idea you've ever heard?

That gay people go to hell. Well, that's not the stupidest, just the one I've come across which most personally offended me. There are so many ridiculous religious ideas, it's tough to choose the stupidest. Perhaps we should have a pageant? "Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Miss Transubstantiation!" (applause)

When did you first admit to being an atheist?

The atheist conclusion was always there, but it took me many years to honestly embrace it. Several years ago I finally came out as atheist to my mom. She freaked, of course. ;-)


I survived 6 years of parochial school (with battle scars). Now I'm free! Though shy by nature, I am always interested in meeting like-minded gents in Port Hueneme, Oxnard or Ventura for laid-back friendships & fun. I'm also a good cook.
