A radical atheist, raised liberal Episcopalian, UU for 10 years, student of atheism & religion, professor, father, lecturer and a singer/songwriter of Dear God, a 13-song CD of atheist gospel.
Great group with intellect, insight and respectful disagreements. I forgot to say the main thing I think about belief, though, which is: It seems to me that belief is the default in our culture, and is used to insure obedience. As Voltare said, If you can be made to believe ridiculous things, you can be made to do horrible things, or something like that. Lots of food for thought just responding to what others said, and I felt welcome.
