I know I know :) every time I go to a foreign
country I get weird looks at me. :)

Used to be agnostic. Not anymore.

I don't. Specially when speaking english.
Bloody language of yours.

An old teacher of mine (thermodinamics) explained the
existance of god through the maximum entropy concept.

I stopped listening in the moment he used "faith" as part of his
explanation. :)

And, from my point of view, the issue is not which religion you are
but which are the rules that guide your life. That is: I may be
atheist, but my morals are christian. Which, at the end, are just
based in the "show respect for eveyone else" rule.

Blah. Is too damn early.
