    The first thread was a basic introduction and announcement I have arrived, but this thread is sort of a separate subject and thus warrants it's own thread, I can't expect everyone to wade through all my fans to get to the real content of my posts.

    So for those that don't know me, I am going to try to think of every major political/social/economic issue and give you my simple stance on them.

    Gay Marriage: Support it

    Abortion: Pro-choice, against partial birth unless mothers life is at risk (and those definitions need to be clarified)

    Drugs: Most drugs should be legal, with the exception of any drugs that may cause harm to others. Marijuana, Cocaine, Heroin, LSD, Mushrooms, etc all legal. Naturally I am against the drug war as well.

    Religion: Atheist. Anyone that claims to be agnostic isn't being truthful with themselves. Yeah, we can't disprove god. You also can't disprove leprechauns dance around your room at night when you sleep, doesn't mean you should believe in them.

    Intelligent Design: This should have no place in a science class because it is not science. Pretty interesting concept huh?

    Taxes: Ideally, I would like to see a world where taxes are only paid voluntarily. Realistically, I support the "Fair Tax", a Flat tax, or a land value tax (ordered from least to most desirable).

    Death Penalty
    : Reluctantly against, but not so much on moral grounds, more so from a practical standpoint (money) and the fact we will kill innocent people.

    Immigration
    Blah.

    Can't think of anymore political,economic,social issues right now, 230am. Feel free to ask though.

    His comments are not-so-secret code for you're either atheist or stupid. Not the first, just "another" one.

    True. He's a kid trying to get noticed here though and doing a decent job. Some here might have too good a time batting him around for awhile...

    You're a tad confused about what agnosticism actually means, amigo. It certainly does NOT mean what you think it means....as in the following:

    Here's what it actually means, FYI

    Well I already explained in my initial post. Agnostics are just being true to what they actually believe, for whatever reasons they may have. I would guess most agnostics eventually become atheists once they realize the silliness of holding out.

    They make the claim that they can't except the existence of god, but they can't dispprove him either. Well, there are lots of things you can't disprove, but it doesn't mean you allow for the possability of them. They are just reluctant to completely rule out the concept of god mostly because of having it hammered into them since they were young.
