Get fitter, complete my current calculus course, and qualify as a skydiver. That should do for a start.

Not much: just happiness, mindfulness, co-operation, mutual respect and caring, working together for the non-fiscal betterment of all. That's all :D

The road goes ever on, apparently. And they all lead to Rome. So the answer is one, or loads.

presumably same reason as most folk, if there is a reason.

Well, if we're going to be honest here, I find alcohol a most useful slumber inducer.....often enough I don't even need to go to bed!

I didn't fall; I jumped.


How do you deal with the conversation in a group that keeps referring to the god stuff.

By asking the most difficult questions I can think of in a most polite way and expressing polite surprise when I am told, "It relies on faith," or something similar. It can take a few minutes before they recognise the wind-up if you do it well!

Depends on the tone of the conversation.
I might just stay out of it, or I might ask a challenging question, for example on the nature of free will. I myself am not decided on this one; and I find theists have just as much difficulty, but from the opposite perspective.
If the conversation is not about belief per se, but about the imposition of laws comporting to some religion's moral code, (eg gay marriage, abortion, etc) I will argue the matter of human rights and freedoms, and avoid the religious aspect altogether; unless the believers base their arguments on God's command; in which case I raise the Euthyphro dilemma, the 'Cosmological Argument' etc.

Good question; same?

I'm afraid I roll my eyes and say something like, 'Oh for pity's sake you don't believe in all that stuff do you?'

sometimes quite easy but it depends on the situation; there are a few instances when it takes years

Depends on whether or not I can see some sort of reason for whatever they did that needs "forgiving". I cannot "forgive" the subsequent attitude and behaviour of the owner of the dog who bit me for example since he had no understanding or compassion for me whatsoever. It was not the dog's fault.

Same question.
