Still on the membership rolls but parted with "the church" when I was 9. Am I still eligible for this site??? I've been "apart" from the church so long that I only consider myself an ex-mormon when I'm around relatives.
I'm also a three time cancer survivor, a published poet as of March 3, 2009 (watch for the Chicken Soup for the Soul, Cancer Book. I've been published before but not in anything recognizable), a high scool graduate as of 2000 (about 35 years late), the state president of Utah Mensa, mobile notary and a few more.
I've been asked a few times, not right out straight but asked, none the less, if I'm more inclined to go back to believing in a "hereafter" now that my cancer is back again. Do I "feel any closer to God"? No. Not a bit. the only thing it has changed is my daily and weekly schedule around chemotherapy treatments and doctor appointments. My beliefs remain the same.
Interests and Hobbies:
Oh, my! Well, cats, science, art, law, Mensa, property, fair housing, writing, Atheism, studying the brain, functions and interactions as it processes information and affects personalities, especially in the interactions of humans and animals, medicine, breast cancer, spinal metastasis and following research on cancer and it's many ways of catching us off guard.

Jon, I checked out one site I found on a search and no, I do not post on that site! Guaranteed!!! I just watched a supposed satire on pedophile priests and it was sick! Not only that, but I have different beliefs on the priest situation. Skeptigator and Skepticat are two different people that have never even met.
On most other sites I have a different name, Logicat. That is the one I use the most.
You asked about the whole Prop. 8 business... it's important to know that it was the California State Supreme Court that ruled that banning same sex marriage violated the state constitution. Prop 8 is an amendment to the state constitution. I'm sure it will end up coming before the US Supreme Court which currently isn't too gay friendly.
Glad to see other cat lovers on here. My wife and I are also cat lovers. We have two cats, one indoor and the other outdoor (they don't get along). Sometimes dog owners tell us that dogs are better because they show more love. I just pass it off as ignorance as cats are just as loveable.
