  1. I just heard your talk on "Skepticality" with Swoopy and I also live in Japan so I thought posting here would be appropriate.

    Just for you information, the Japanese, by and by, are Humanists. Dogma based religion, if followed at all, is a very private. My Japanese friends would say that it isn't important ant enough to talk about between friends. Christian based dogma is about 1% of total population. Couple this with one of the safest countries with regards to crime, it makes one wonder about dogmatic faith in any form. Apparently, to the Japanese, you don't need god to know how to treat another person kindly and with respect.
    Interesting place to be.
    Lastly, I appreciate you getting the word out to other people in support of the Japanese. Arigatogozaimosu
