More to religion
than pleasing
your imaginary friend

Rich Daniel Rich Daniel, 43, resident of Dayton Ohio, also known as VCBC's Skeptic in Residence, went missing since about 6:00 am, Monday, 31 July 2000. He left a suicide note. His body was found on 11 March 2001, in the woods.

Rich, a former Christian Fundamentalist, was interested in atheism, nanotechnology, biotechnology, cognitive and neural science, computers, and Psion PDAs. He was civilian employee of Wright Patterson AFB, and a former student a Wright State University. He indulged his humorous side as Grand High Lama of the Invisible Pink Unicorn.

I remember him here with his greatest friend, M. Scott Collins, who was killed by a reckless driver in 1994 at the age of 39. It was my great privilege to have known them both from our youth. I pray for the wives and families of these great men. May God give rest to their souls.

Rich seemed determined to prevent those closest to him from helping him avoid suicide. He struggled with OCD and depression for many years.
