    I'm a 6 on the Dawkins scale as well. I hardly know anyone that would actually be a 7 and I usually roll with the agnostic/atheist/skeptic crowd.

    I don't believe in Richard Dawkins, so I refuse to measure myself on his scale.

    My son decided to participate in no-shave November. When he first started in the beginning of the month (a week in) we were doubting whether or not he could grow a full beard. I teased him about being a young buck with only 2 points. Well, its the end of the month and his face resembles a grizzly bear. So I told him he can't shave until the first day of spring.

    I got inducted into the National Honor Society this evening! I dressed up really nice--you know, job interview nice. Most of the ceremony was just esoteric mumbo-jumbo, which kind of annoyed me (blog post on academia later), but I still felt so wonderful. Before walking across the stage, we signed our name and graduation year on a piece of paper. I was so nervous that my handwriting came out like a kindergartener's. But I walked that stage, looking confident in front of hundreds of people. As I walked off the stage, I tripped a little bit, because my legs were shaky.

    I felt like a powerful, high-powered businesswoman in my spiffy outfit. (Hehe...during the whole reception, I pretended I was an ENTJ 3.) As my family walked back out to the car, I was listening to the clicking of my heels on the sidewalk. My sister was walking next to me pretending to be someone who worked for my company. "I want that report in by tomorrow at 3 PM sharp. Now excuse me, I have a meeting," I told her. My dad even said I looked like myself from an alternate and opposite universe!

    Oh yeah, and I guess I'm proud of my academic performance. Whatever.

    if the air in the building at work gets any drier we'll all be mummified by the end of shift... as it is, I think that my trachea is set to head out on its own

    however, I did get to spend a few days pretending that I was the queen of the building and informing those who noticed me perched up way above everything "cower, puny mortals!"

    I didn't like "Religulous". There was some truth, but the tone was inappropriate and offensive.


    I haven't read "The God Delusion" yet. Heard very various opinions about it ...
    @Olm the Water King (I need to get used to) @SpankyMcFly - what are yours?
    I think the book is awesome who's timing was perfect (the Internet coming into its own). What I really got out it was a toolbox that enabled me to be more open about my atheism.

    I've never met a 7 either. Which was precisely Dawkin's point when he wrote about it. Plenty of 1's though in the U.S.

    Oh hey! Cool! Welcome, fellow Honor Society member I actually forgot I was a part of it until you mentioned it hehe. Hmm, maybe I should browse their website again to see if anything's new...
