    The most liberating thing for me was the long journey that I took in freeing my mind. It just so happened that it ended with atheism.

    Well, how weird it might seem it appears I am an atheist as I checked the definition of atheist

    So what is the best thing about being an atheist?
    That I can be religious without the need of a deity or god as supernatural and being considered divine or sacred.

    I guess I didn't realize this was a party. I didn't see that in the OP.

    Miatas are a family of tiny sports cars popular
    in Colorado. Think mountains. Think roads.
    Think twisty mountain roads taken at high speeds.

    A couple decades ago, someone I hung out with
    most days of the week had a white Miata sports
    car. She never had a problem cornering.

    I forget now her specific model, but all Miatas are
    more or less along these lines...

    Arguably, Miatas look like what you'd look like
    if you were a car. Very much including the 'tiny-ness'.

    I think these are nonsensical questions.

    It's like asking "what brings you the greatest satisfaction in not collecting stamps as a hobby?".

    The OP made a mirthful reference to the thread that inspired this one.

    Ruined minds? If you're going to talk about me
    that way, my love, you should know I am not religious.

    Um... is it alright that I climb up there so we can have a face-to-face chat? It's ok. I'm good at negotiating ledges when rock-climbing. I can make it!

    Thats a Mazda MX5, one of the best roasters made since the MGB.

    Must be renamed for the American market to avoid confusing the car with a deity of Zoroastrianism.

    Snippet, mazda also made the RX series of cars, 2 rotor wankel engine, they were quick... a friend had an RX3 and was chased by the police at 145 mph. She eventually stopped, the police pulled up, steams jetting from the engine. "The speed limit is 70mph, how fast do you think you were moving?"
    "About 65 to 70"
    "Go, **** off for your cheek, i love a good chase "

    That seems about right. Mazdas are called Mazdas here, but apparently some models are called Miatas, and others still Mazda Miatas.

    Actually, in the US, it's called the Mazda MX-5 Miata.

    I didn't know you were an aphilatelist as well.

    So what does bring you the greatest satisfaction in not collecting stamps as a hobby?

    I don't think of my unbelief as any part of the primary description of myself. I didn't become an atheist, and then an igtheist, with the intention of feeling good about it.

    I'm an igtheist simply because igtheism in my view is the most accurate interpretation available of the data regarding gods.

    If a real god shows up, I'll rethink the question.
