Where is everyone from???

August 22, 2009

Ok, so it’s Saturday and I don’t have anything profound yet this morning. So, I was wondering, where is everyone from that’s posting on this blog? For those of you don’t know, I live in Columbus, Ohio, does just about everyone from the Thomas Society.

    Near Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where I spend my days as statistician, gardener, gamer, and general threat to civilization.

    Originally from Nova Scotia, Canada (as Spider Robinson said, the best place in the world but don’t tell anyone, or they’ll all want to go there), but for the past half-decade in Ottawa. Used to be a Personal Care Worker specializing in home care, but my knees just wouldn’t take it so I’ve switched to animation school.

    Urbana, IL

    Since the others appear to be adding more…..
    Grew up in SW Wisconsin (serious redneck area where I was obligated to learn how to milk a cow and shoot a gun), lived in Minneapolis, MN, and Madison, WI, for a while. Failed orchestrator (really, who ever heard of a redneck orchestrator?); average IT nerd just without the ability to play any sort of video game without losing in the first 2 minutes.

    OT –
    guess who –
    ” If I don’t let atheists speak their minds, even if some of the atheists who comment are delusional and hateful, their comments still offer insights into atheism that my articles, however genius they may be, can’t offer. So as of now, all atheists can comment as much as they wish ……….”

    Wow, I’ve always maintained he was real and not a Poe, but that “genius” line actually does make me wonder. He comes off as incredibly prideful, but calling himself a genius actually seems out of character.

    Still not worth reading, though.

    I agree “P” T is not worth reading – I had almost weaned myself off car wreck watching, but was glad I went back for (hopefully) my last look for that priceless comment about his ‘genius’.

    He is real though he shook PZ’s hand and then sculked off, and has a church in KY.

    SoCal, land of smog and AC-defeating sunshine; originally from here and there in Siberia. Trying to combine past experience in IT and current linguistics MA track to find work in computational linguistics, and hoping to someday have enough time to read again. (~40 hours a week *might* be enough, but I wouldn’t say no to more… ;))

    Kelseigh – If you want to see really well-done Poe and you haven’t seen them already, check out the forums of Landover Baptist. They’re remarkably similar to Tom in a lot of ways, but knowing that they’re a joke makes it funny instead of depressing, and the reactions of the people who take them at face value are pretty good too.

    Born England, raised US, live Palo Alto (California), humanist. Computer system support, use to work for computational linguists.

    Know a couple of people who went on the Secular Student Association Creation Museum tour hence why I heard about this blog.

    One of whom, Lewis, put up his pictures (with commentary) at

    Found your blog a few days ago as the chatter from *that* creation museum visit was simmering down.
    Nice to find a theistic blog that isn’t all blood and thunder (like Pastor Tom’s blog) and actually listens to those who have different beliefs!

    Marvellous! keep it up! 🙂

    I love England, so you are always welcome here for that fact alone. I almost lived in London and my dream is to some day work at Oxford in some ministry role.

    Oxford is a lovely place to live, for a city. I lived there 12 years ago.
    Now in Northumberland, near Scottish border.

    Did anyone notice that he who must not be named has changed his posting rules? Maybe we ARE having an influence. But maybe that’s be optimistic to the point of absurdity.

    I grew up in D.C. and New York, went to high school in the backwoods of northwest Michigan, undergrad in NYC, five years of fun and silliness in San Francisco, and will “celebrate” ten years of living in Los Angeles at the end of the year. I mostly hate it here but oh well.

    Born in Leningrad, Russia, but grew up in New England with a profound love for Montreal. Currently in beautiful (yet boring-if-the-weather-sucks) middle of New Hampshire studying for my PhD in biochemistry and planning my underground lair for when I finally graduate and have to deal with reality.

    Can’t speak for Oxford, but i know London is an awesome city…to be part of that seething mass of humanity is awesome…but then i don’t live there and don’t have to deal with the stress of traffic and tourists everyday!

    You should come up north to Yorkshire, ‘God’s own county’ they call it 🙂 Regardless of deitys, it’s beautiful in places…when it stops raining!

    You are from NOLA??? Sweet!!! My Student group and the Students for Free Thought will be coming your way in March for a service project we are doing together. We have to meet up.

    Oh, and your blog is added.

    England, Yorkshire.

    For what it’s worth Pastor Tom was joking about the genius thing. His policy has been changed because it was more hassle than it was worth to moderate before a post.

    I’m sorry, i can’t stay away….it’s too fascinating.

  26. August 23, 2009 5:15 pm

    His policy has been changed because people weren’t interested in reading his rants, and he wanted the traffic

    Fixed that for you.

    Kelseigh, I am also in Ottawa now, and it is nice to see I am not the only Maritime person around here. I am originally from Fredericton, New Brunswick, moved to Vancouver for a while and have come back east a little bit and landed in Ottawa.

  28. August 24, 2009 2:27 am

    Nice thing about Ottawa is, for all of it’s being bigger, capital city and all, it’s actually not that different than a place like Halifax. Great big small town, really.

    No, I love his rants…they are so ranty.

    Born Iran, to American parents working overseas in the eight months before the Shah was deposed. Now living in Chattanooga, still searching for the perfect hamburger.

    Though Five Guys comes /really really/ close.

    Bracknell, England. Far enough from London to have some lovely countryside on my doorstep, close enough to be able to pop in tio the West End for a show !!

    Ah, the West End. Caught a couple of great shows there when I visited!

    I love having you English folks around here!

    I get the pleasure of arguing with Jon face to face. Anyone jealous? 😉
