Other more moderate religions can persist longer as part of a person's world view because they are more tolerant of concepts such as evolution.

This was exactly the case in Catholic Québec.

Welcome Tommy.

Glad you survived your baptism =)

someone asked wtf i was doing in japan. '62 was a big year fer me. i was 18, in the coast guard, in coos bay ore, we had just lost a life, in my conversion to atheism, and then in the coast guard, after someone drowned they wanted to split us up, so trubble wouo=uldn't come. so we were told pick a district.  there were at leasdt 19 districts, most chose europe, but i'd heard the women in the s pacific were partial to white men, so i chose the pacific, the 19th district. i was very dissapointed when i learned i was going to japan. so i came here and i spent a year here on miyako jima east of taiwan at a LORAN stastion. there was little to do cept study the local lingo, which i later learned was a dialect, actually almost a different language of japanese. so after a year there i had a little japanese, and i continued to study it for the next three years, even after my discharge in hawaii. after a year there i got a scholarship to stidy japanese at a japanese university. so i arrived in japan in  jan 1966 and started to study hard.  thay nov 12 i met the gril i wud marry.

kyoto isthe old capital. its been a city from its origin over 1200 years ago. it s got a lot of famous temples etc. the golden pavilionor kinkakiji, ginkakuji, ryoanji, kiyomizu dera, nanzenji tec etc  and the gosho or the ols imperial palace. yoto shi must be a mistake i live in kyoto shi or city.  the beef is prolly kobe beef, unrelated to kyoto and near by but stiill too far for me. i only eat tasmanian or aussie beef. kobe is a city the beef comes from villages behind it. wife hates cameras so i donr have one

coos bay esp charleston where the coastguard station was was beautiful, esp in the winter. its a rain forest there, and the ice=[on the trees wasd astoundingly buautiful. i had to climb to to tower from the base twice a day so i went right thru it

yes chris, kyoto the ancient capital where the kyoto protocol was signed

Kyoto is an extremely beautiful city. I will never forget my visit there. You are a lucky man, Carl. If I lived in Kyoto, I would never get any work done, just walk around the beautiful sites all day. And I'd go to Nara all the time :-) I went through the "nostril of Buddha", the "healing pillar" at Todaiji Temple, so now I'll be lucky for the rest of my life (or I'll go to heaven, I forget which :-)).

yes adriana, i suppose it still is nice. but i remeber when i first camt to kyoto. i dint realize it at the time, but they were about to tear down many of the old machiya or city homes and turn thhem into buildings.  most are now long gone. ive been in two giant buddhas asses, so i qualify for the title buddha fart. (you have to give the title to yourself)

actually i did go to nara for years in fact i lived there while i was in university in '66. nara was still pristine, as well.

In Beijing they tore out a lot of the old city before the olympics came and replaced them with condos. 

they'll be sorry. it's history that they are tearing out

How true!

Coast Guard Stations are usually in idyllic areas.

A couple guys I worked with lived in Japan for awhile. I think they were there for three year stints. They liked it but thought it was expensive and weren't used to the small living quarters. I don't remember which towns/cities they lived in. I looked into transferring there, but ended up transferring the NE Oregon instead. My parents have a friend who lives in Chiba. We though he may have been lost in the tsunami, but he finally replied that his family and house was OK.

The U.S. should sign in to some kind of climate change agreement.
