Jimmy McCann, Yes, to everything you wrote. Powerfully, honestly, beautifully. 
For me, it was realizing I had put my trust into something that was not trustworthy; that I have all that I need to explore and experiment and test all those things of which you write without guilt or shame. 
My moral compass has not failed me and I am so grateful to know I am made up of the elements of the universe, that the universe is part of me and I am part of it.

Jimmy:  Leaving my religion was the scariest thing I've ever done.  I may as well have been throwing myself off a cliff.  I went through about a six month depression, then into the present stage where I want to grab everyone by the shoulders and tell them I finally know the truth.  Yes, the truth does make you free.  And I've freed up a lot of brain-space.  Xians always "knew best" what I was supposed to do with my time and my thoughts.   

You expressed it very well.

Nice to see a science ad at the top of the page for a change.

Does anyone know the current status of Tiktaalik (fishapod)? When it was first described, it was thought to be a transitional fossil sharing traits of both fish and tetrapods .  In a subsequent article it was no longer considered a transitional form. If anyone can give me any info I would appreciate it. Thank you in advance.

Too bad the Cowardly Agnostic posts disappeared.  I thought there were some very interesting comments.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 21, 2012 at 10:42pm

Joseph P, I was not aware of the process of deleting remarks and the consequences. Thanks for the information. 

Comment by Joseph P on October 21, 2012 at 9:36pm

Perhaps he dropped the last name from his profile or changed it entirely.  Lots of people do that.  Crap-loads of Daniels around here.

It was a discussion thread called, "Is Agnosticism cowardly or a cop-out?"  And, now it's gone.

I hate when people do that.  Yeah, he started the discussion thread, but the 30 or 40 comments that others added got nuked along with it.

It's like a discussion I was having with Michael Pianko, over in Atheist Singles.  It was a very productive conversation that others might have benefited from, and then he wiped all 20 or 30 posts he had made to the discussion thread, making my responses fairly meaningless.

Susan, thanks.
