It's not about stupidity. It's about being a worthless waste of skin that enjoys watching animals get tortured. Pardon me if I have no sympathy for such "people" and I use the word extremely loosely.

Gotta come up with question TBD.

Are we going with standard questions to pigeonhole sex, ethnicity and age OR are we going to be a bit more imaginative and ask things like:

Indoctrinated Y or N
Castrated Y of N
How many sects have you belonged to?
How many sex masters have you belonged to?
Were you ever a missionary?
Have you ever done it missionary?
Have you partaken in the Transubstantiation rights?
Have you taken part in cannibal rites?

etc... come up with some more for the census

I get it, at least in these two instances the animals won Clap
I hate cruelty to animals as much as anyone.

RE: An Official TTA Census?
The standard questions are interesting too. How about...

Country of birth
Country of realized disbelief (if appicable)
Country you were a citizen of when you started believing
Education level
Did you/do you ever regard the Bible as literal fact?
Did you/do you ever regard the Bible as historically accurate?


Some of these might work... Consider

Of course. I'm not sure how long the census should be. And as I look at some of the questions I generated, they may just not be all that interesting. I doubt most will put down 2 different countries for started to believe and gave-up belief (assuming atheists).

Maybe

Age you took the Salvation Prayer/got saved/began to become more interested in religion?

Age you started questioning religion seriously

Age you stopped believing (if applicable)

Surveymonkey is a great place to do this, like someone pointed out earlier.

Well, let's kick Full Circle's ass in gear!

Let's give him some more questions to choose from too. His idea, so he gets to choose what he thinks will work best.

Whoa! How the Censored did this become my idea? Where is Poolboy and Stark? And Dom seems to know all about Surveymonkey...Yes
And if FT thinks he's getting a free ride on this he's got another thing coming!

I know, we'll form a committee! In that way this will never see the light of day.

We need more questions, serious and not so serious. Things we'd actually want to know about one another.

TBD already has a few good ones. Maybe I'll do what Near did with the reference page and keep collecting them as long as you guys keep coming up with good ones.
