I'm ex-Mormon. I am not religious and I generally view religion as device to further generally-bigoted causes and greed, not truly for the benefit of mankind. I am still interested in religion, but for more of a social commentary reason than something I would care to be involved in.
I love science and reason. The true tools of progress. Progress seems like a good thing- rights, technology, knowledge. Technology, though; I often wonder if it's really making the world a better place. Is it awesome that I can date online? Sure. Is it better than going out and meeting someone? Doubtful. Does this stop me? Hell no. Is a car that gets 50 mpg better than one that gets 20 mpg? Sure. Is it better than being able to walk to work and wherever else you need to go? Absolutely not. I'll stop here or we'll have an unreadable essay on our hands soon in which I keep asking myself questions and we all lose.
