I have to admit that a large part of me leans heavily towards the notion of a Universe Without Design. Growing up Muslim, I was taught that creation was proof enough of God's existence, but I experienced my first doubts when I learned about hermaphrodites. Then, I worked for an organization that provided respite care for children with disabilities, and I learned about a young teen who was born with a condition that compelled her to vomit 100 times a day. And she wasn't the only one. I remember thinking, "What is this?" The seeds of agnosticism planted right there.

Oh, and yet another reason I won't be joining the military. (Yes, over the years I have considered it numerous times.)
