Hi Adrian, welcome to the list. I've found your discussions very interesting.

I'm 41 and an ex Vietnam era vet myself (I was in bootcamp at 17 during the fall of Saigon) I am a Union electrician local 134 I.B.E.W working as network premise engineer at the Ameritech data center Chicago.

I guess on your scale I would be closer to "Brave Young Atheist".

The current extropian solution for "Fearful Neanderthals" is a cryonics contract.

I guess I could sum up my religious belief (born catholic) as I can't believe in a god on a planet where 35,000+ children a day starve to death.

Nice to make your acquaintance
