Pretty much spot on how I feel a lot of the time. What do you REALLY believe?

Atheist Study

I received a decent amount of emails today requesting to be part of Professor Baggett’s study on United States atheists. Thank you for participating if you have. The more diverse results he gets, the better he will be able to show that we are not baby eating devil worshipers (my words not his).

A few people were unable to post their emails to my “ask box” due to tumblr restrictions on posting links. To get around that you can tweak your email to make it work. Example: name@gmail(.)com

If you did not read my initial post on the study, go here. If you would like to participate, leave your name and email in my ask box.

If you would like to participate in a study on United States atheists please check out my previous entry. This study is being done to dispel some of the stereotypes and misconceptions about atheists.

If you would like me to send you the survey and questionnaire please leave your name and email in my ask box. I will respond as fast as I can with the attached documents and instructions on where to send them.

Atheist Study

Professor Jerome Baggett is conducting a study about how atheists think about the world around them and go about the business of living their lives. (Link)

Fellow atheists, please click the link for a further explanation of what Professor Baggett is trying to accomplish. Because of the large response that he received so far, he is no longer doing the interviews, but instead having people fill out a survey and questionnaire.

If you would like to fill them out, send me a message with your email and I can forward them to you. Please share this with any other atheists you believe might be interested. This is an excellent project and will hopefully help dispel some of the stereotypes and misconceptions about atheists.

Click here if you would like to give me your email so I can send you the survey and questionnaire.

Another question for believers

Our planet is one of eight (nine for those who still count Pluto, I don’t), orbiting around our sun. Our sun is one of an estimated 200 to 400 billion in the Milky Way galaxy. Our galaxy is one of an estimated 170 billion or more within the observable universe. This creates the possibility a very large number of other planets out there. It seems likely that there is probably life on at least one of them, possibly intelligent life.

My question is this; how does the possibility of other intelligent life in the universe factor into your religious beliefs? Do you think that these other possible lifeforms would have the same mythologies as this planet, or is your faith specific to Earth? Do you think that Earth is all that there is?

Wouldn’t it be scary to live in a world like that…

Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. Steve Jobs - American computer entrepreneur, inventor, and technology innovator.  Co-founder, chairman, and CEO of Apple.  Aimed to develop products that were both functional and elegant.  Renovated the music industry with the invention of the iPod and iTunes program.  Considered himself a Buddhist.  Battled pancreas cancer and lost.
