Interesting.... almost all of the people I have met and talked to who disbelieved in evolution had almost no idea what the theory actually says.

I think I would actually prefer a roommate like that! Of course, this poll isn't really aimed at me so take that for what it's worth.

Why would an agnostic sacrifice goats?

Irrespective of my or my room mate's views, I do the second option. I keep my distance from everyone, even the room mate I have.

Goat meat makes really good shisk-ka-bobs. Goat Stew, Goatburger, Goat tenderloin in a red wine sauce, BBQ leg of Goat, the list is just about as long as your culinary imagination.

I agree. Yet, I still don't get an agnostic "sacrificing" anything...????

Why? I really mean that!

I get hit on by men quite frequently - comes with the town I happen to visit frequently. To me, it's nothing more than a compliment and it doesn't freak me out any more than getting hit on by a woman.

I once had a guy reach out and run his fingers through my hair at a party. I didn't freak - why would I? I told him that I was not a homophobe but that I wasn't a homosexual, either. And that was it - he apologized for being so bold and I told him that there was nothing wrong with finding another human being attractive. I did this as respectfully as I would tell any woman that I wasn't interested in her.
