Extropy has no built in politics. That is why I am an extropian and not a

I am not an atheist.  I don't bother with religion. I value empathy more

since I joined this group. We certainly have no problem discussing religion.
I know, for example, that most of us are atheists. What about, as Spike
suggested in his let's-have-an-open-season-on-libertarianism suggestion,
