new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

the american nones

the profile of the no religion population in america, including those that do not identify with organized religions: atheists, agnostics, and the 'spiritual but not religious'.

somehow, i find this chart very interesting and wonder how it correlates with indoctrination:

  1. How it correlates with indoctrination? If you mean that children grow up and drop religion, I believe that's a well-known trend. The only anomaly I see is that Baptists do an excellent job at keeping their parishioners as they grow up.

  2. no i was looking at the other end --- how many children start out as non-believers (at age 12) and then become believers. or am i misunderstanding something?

  3. I don't think that information is there. Another bit that is interesting is that if you're in a room of non-believers, most (two-thirds) of them believed as children.

    Sorry about the alias, the new blogspot login doesn't seem to like me.

  4. yes.. i clicked on it but i didn't get anywhere :-D
