Lets all admit something. Many of us are entrenched in our beliefs. So how would you react if I suddenly announced I was atheist?
Remember this is all hypothetical.
Or how would you react if Godsands announced he was atheist? or if freeman announced he was Buddhist now?
Answer these then...
Come up with your own as well and tell how you would react.

I don't hold beliefs about the supernatural :)

And try not cling to anything I do believe, but let such things come and go as they will.

If somebody realized their limited capacities of "knowing" and so, rejected absolute belief, I would say "Good Job!"... Or.. "Most Reasonable!"

If somebody assumed the existence of things because they naturally care to I would also say "Good Job!"... Or "Most Reasonable!"

If somebody came to believe things which are unsupported, and are not derived from natural cares, I would say "Quite unreasonable of you!!"

I don't think I ever mentally catalogued that you were Christian.

Sh*t brix.

or if freeman became a buddhist?

Meh, Buddhism isn't a theistic religion. Now, if Freeman became a Jehovah's Witness, brix would be shat.

You mean, you never catalogued the guy with the Christian crosses in his avatar wasn't Christian?

Point taken, but I think Lars Ulrich is Christian, yes.

How would you react if Ragnar_Rahl said that he was a Socialist and had a shrine to Karl Marx?

Wouldn't be surprised. I've always thought he's been overacting the part of Objectivist libertarian.

but I think Lars Ulrich is Christian
Wait, what?

If anyone in the band was it would be him, but where are you getting this?

He sure is a pretty damn tempted one if so:

""When they came to L.A., their manager got them girls, drugs and alcohol," he recalls. "I'm going, ‘These girls are f***ing these guys because of what they are, not who they are!' That was intriguing.""

Hey, I only said "I think," it wasn't a statement said in full confidence. I heard it on a show once though, one of the Entertainment Weekly rip-off's.

Godsands is an atheist.

But overall I would not really care.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

What makes you think DATC and Godsands are both atheists? I'm firmly convinced that they're both evangelical christians. Evangelicals do often act like that.

Oh sure they may be members of some church, or sympathetic to some sort of religious movement, but when they fail to have any knowledge of, or convinction in their religion nor indeed any other then I am going to call them atheists.

Neither of them believes a single word they say, DATC is only a 'Christian' because he has failed at life and so has resorted to the occult to lord it over others.

lol, Godsands I suspect... DATCMOTO I think has convinced himself through repetition.

I didn't say that (though I wouldn't, not interested in her at all).

I said I'd do nothing for a klondike bar.

Meaning I do nothing, you give me a klondike bar.
