It's actually unusual to find discussions on many of the topics we discuss on CPS. Can you recall ever discussing "Saving Cream of Wheat from Hamiltonian Mechanics" with anyone else anywhere at anytime? Unheard of. Only on CPS. There are many topics like that on CPS. Mostly the people we know in real life share or know our views anyway so there is less discussion. We're not exposed to American views when we're talking to other canucks.Thunktank wrote:Rusty wrote:They're the best forums. The most interesting & important things are often discussed here.

Is there a more interesting basis for discussion? We think this is ideal for good discussions. Diversity of views is very welcome and the forum is most interesting when there is a diverse membership. Also there are subjects of common interest eg pipes and tobaccos and for one of us, evolution (he's an evangelist). BTW there are four of us here with varying degrees of skepticism to agnosticism to atheism. One of the four was a Druid last year. We haven't pigeon-holed his latest worldview variation. Consider us a friendly catch-basin that bridges worldviews.wsblevins wrote:I'm still scratching my head and wondering why an atheist would want to participate in a Christian based forum?

I suppose in Canada you all are nice because you don't readily take on?
Really? I must have missed UB's post and I thought you really were exploring Celtic religion. And here I was 'wearing' Celtic God avatars in encouragement.Thunktank wrote:And you do know that I never was a Druid right? That was UB's invention of me. You ALL know that right?
I never practiced any other religion other than Christianity. Unless you consider learning about them a practice of them.
Hmmm... nope. I'd like to explore the Japanese religions and beliefs.Thunktank wrote:I have, for the last three to four years been an agnostic/atheist/nontheist/skeptic/naturalist. There are a few possible untraditional definitions of God I could get behind, but that's just a play on words. Nontheist is the best definition for me. I have played many things for fun around here. I thought you new that.
