Hello from LogicalAtheist

    Hello all! I'm a neuroscience pre-med major.

    I'm glad to be here, especially now, because I just completed my two semester series of non-calculus physics.

    Being a science major, I have a rule for myself. I don't buy any books on a given scientific subject until I have finished the introductory requirements of that given area of physics. Since I have just completed the physics set, I have a question for you all. I'll post it in the physics section though, seems more appropriate!

    Dude finding a girlfriend is hard! I have requirements, as we all do. Boy oh boy it takes many trials. I've dated surely but not finding someone who I feel really good about.

    Any females here who are in their 20's and in the atlanta area? I'm fine as hell!!!!

    dear lord it isnt that hard how high are your "requirements"?

    Exactly what I was thinking Nicool...

    Well. While there are personal little things, i would say the largest factor ruling out a major portion of the population is that she can't be religious.
  16. May 13, 2003 #15
    Just that one requirement is way too high. I cant remember the exact percent buit over 90% of people believe in god or havea religion of some kind. Maybe that is why it is easy to me and most other people
    Thank God...literaly

    I have no requirements, they have to be nice though!!!

    Nicool. If 90% of the population were known to commonly kill their relationship partners, would you still think I was being to picky?

    I mean to say: How could I allow myself to enter a relationship, something that is considered to be built on, among other things, trust and honesty, when this person can not even set aside emotionality in order to asses a situation logically? Furthermore, many religious people admit they are such built on "belief without evidence" and therefore they would in fact be acting dishonest to their own self. How then would one predict they'd act towards others?

    Needless to mention the vastness of other problems with religious humans. Particularly the fact that, if you define intelligence in a "reality" sense like so:

    Intelligence - (among other things) The ability to assess a situation using existant principle in logic, math, and using methods of science (most importantly just simple logic) and to disallow emotionality, which is subjective and inferior as a method of reason, to obstruct ones reasoning.

    Now that that's defined, how could I choose to enter into a relationship with someone so unintelligent that they basis of their life fits this description? And furthermore that they commit one of the two biggest errors of present humanity (seen in my sig) which is to superimpose religious mythology onto reality?

    I don't mean to be digging into a big psych junk here, I just wanted to take the time to say this outloud to people because as you can imagine I don't say it often.

    With that said, it's hard to meet a women who meets this SINGLE (although dividable) value.

    But when I have met them, they're wonderfull females :smile:

    BTW nicool. You're statistic is WAY off.

    It all depends IMPORTANTLY on how the question is asked. For instance if you say "are you an atheist" less people say yes than if you say "are you religious".

    Since you are religious, I make a non-accusatory claim that perhaps you read these stats in a religious text, which in case they would twist science or do as I said and ask questions in such a way that data is false, or just stand right outside a church and ask, they do that all the time!

    Using the latter, statistics in the USA say that around 33% (waxing and wanning from 30 to 40) say they are NOT RELIGIOUS.

    This number, in the US and in other "modern" countries is climbing rapidly. Every year it grows a nice amount, makes me ever so happy.

    BREED ATHEISTS BREED! It's our duty (and an easy one at that) to spread logic and truth, and help to speed up the moment at which humanity as a generalized whole returns to viewing religious mythology as such, like it was BEFORE someone began superimposing it onto reality.

    I being an atheist will have as many kids as I can afford, and my money goes FIRST to supporting them, I will make sacrifices to have more children.

    I completely agree
  21. May 13, 2003 #20
    Wow you agree? I feel so good, I couldn't have imagined I better comment to that.

    Now, uhm, you aren't female are you? If you are gimme your addy and I'll take a plane immediately. Do you prefer roses or tulips? heh JK
