In A Nutshell

Pretending to know things that we do not know is not an act of responsibility. Likewise, leaving an organization when we discover that its foundational claims are bunk is absolutely not the same as "quitting responsibility". Personal integrity carries a price, and leaving an organization that is perpetuated and motivated by powerful, irrational convictions is not for the faint of heart, nor does it demonstrate a lack of personal integrity.

OK, so now that you are free to think, please go back to the beginning and look at everything again. Don't hearken back to what you left...it is plain that you are a 'thinker' - you have no further need to justify your decision(s). Move on to an analysis of everything that is 'out' there in the world and 'ín' there in history. Find the truth of the universe and don't waste your time on dissociating yourself from the past - agreeable though it may be. There are real truths out there to be found

@Bill Whaa? I can't tell if you're trying to be impertinent or self-contradictory.

"Hmmm. That person is a thinker, so I uh... I better go over there and remind them to... uh, you know... think. Derp."

But of course, you and I both know that a single, year-old, paragraph posted to a blog is all that is needed to understand the sum total of a person's spent time and how they're clearly "wasting" it.

On that note: Here, you may have your wet blanket back.

Weirdo.
