I'm interested in your username. Any relation to Jonny 5, co-frontman of political rock-rap group Flobots?

(You may know them from their hit single Handlebars, which also happens to be like their shittiest song, so I refuse to link it.)

I'd also love to discuss religion. I am no longer a Christian, but I'm always down to talk about the Bible. I have particular interest in Islam and Buddhism as well, plus a bit of a fascination with religion in general.

Greetings! Nope, it was actually a reference to the robit from Short Circuit. He craves INPUT, as I do :)

I had only heard Handlebars, but I like the one you linked. I'm not big into hip hop, but do like some of the more socially conscious folks (Saul Williams, Dälek, etc.).

Religion-wise, definitely! As I mentioned in my post, there's much that I like from Islam and from (Zen) Buddhism (Mahayana was a little too nihilistic for my tastes from the little I've been exposed to it). I realize it's hard to sum up something like one's entire theology quickly, so I won't ask that. But let's instead start with what you've been thinking about recently?
