why the hell would any survey dwell so much on your sexual orientation , if there are any gay people in this place what the hell does it matter if there strait ,bi or into rubber dolls , i guess he just looking around for some dirt on atheists i think your full of shit , whats next questions like do atheists eat baby's with sauce or with out sauce.
I had a problem on your survey that was the question on how many people in my country did I think where athiest. What country the one I live in or my home land UK. I chose UK of which I estimate about 25% here in the Philippines I would say 3% and we have two that I know on this community site.
UK treats its religion very different than USA very moderate beliefs its more of what you put down on a form and where you get married or baptise a child thing.
P.S. I'd be happy to participate in your research on those who have "come out" of the atheist closet. I am an ex-Christain and ex-Fundie. I liberalised from right wing fundamentalism on my way through and out of the generic delusion. I began studying for the Methodist ministry but did not finish. I became a practising psychologist instead. The social psych aspects of the my training ensured that I could never return to my previous beliefs without sacrificing my intellectual integrity or acquiring brain pathology.
Thanks for the hard work. I will be taking the survey and look forward seeing the results. Bye the way, I love Elon. I came very close to attending Elon many moons ago (Eastern N.C. born and raised). I decided marine science was the area I wanted to pursue and stayed on the coast. I wish you well with the research. Take care.
