I just posted a new comment from my MySpace blog on the forum. Here's what I said there:
I like this message, because it came on the heels of a discussion I was having with FTL about the thrust of my work, which is NOT to create "atheists" out of people but to enjoy as a freethinker many creative concepts conceived by humanity since time immemorial. This person on my MySpace blog epitomizes my work pretty darn well!
It's unfortunate that more myspace people don't find their way to this blog to be challenged and hopefully deprogrammed.
My thanks to Acharya for being one of the ones who freed me from false thinking and brainwashing.
The process does not leave one an atheist but frees one to embrace the wider emerging awareness of a universal god, not a tribal god who has sown so much bloodshed and destruction, especially in the Mideast.

Again, I'm not trying to cause people to become atheists - or theists. What you do with your own consciousness is entirely up to you. You have a right to the privacy of your own mind. I am completely uninterested in mind control, either of myself or of anyone else. The only "mind control" I personally engage in is to direct my thinking to positive and creator endeavors whenever possible. Otherwise, I am free to contemplate God or No God, depending on the situation and how I feel.
That, to me, is the essence of Freethought. And I'm really glad when someone like Dan "gets it." Cool
My only criterion for belief systems is whether or not they produce nice, tolerant and loving people. If not, whether theistic or atheistic, they need to go the way of the dodo. I would much rather hang around with a sweet born-again Christian with Down Syndrome than with a nasty atheist with a high IQ.
