Default Re: Soul searching (Somewhat).

Is it a stigma in Puerto Rico to be an atheist? How restrictive ... when you're not allowed to own your own beliefs that doesn't leave a lot of room for personal freedom.

Personally, while I was a huge fan of Richard Dawkins's writing on evolutionary biology, until we better understand the nature of consciousness then I can't be anything but agnostic. If we're talking about a big father figure "up there" who hides and then arbitrarily punishes and rewards n the basis of believing ancient texts then, yes, I'm an atheist.

Drumming can come and go. Quite a few people here have had prolonged breaks from drumming. But we eventually came back ... drumming is addictive IMO :)
