A Brief Introduction
Hello all,

I'm a 44 year old male in northwest Louisiana. I've been an atheist for most of my life, although I didn't realize it until I reached about twenty five. I started challenging all of the other falsehoods society had foisted upon me at about that time and by now I have managed to alienate myself from just about every corner of culture one can imagine. On top of being an atheist, I'm also an anarchist and my wife and I lead an alternative lifestyle. Maybe my moniker should be AAA??

In any event, I'm a rational empiricist who enjoys discussing most anything other than sports, celebrities, television or movies. I'm a big fan of philosophy, although not so much with the abstract, nonsensical lifeboat scenarios that most people argue ad nauseum. I can do a little of that but I prefer to focus on the ethical problems we can actually do something about in our lives and that we actually experience on a day to day basis.

To keep with the title of my post, I'll refrain from blathering on further and simply say that I look forward to some thought provoking discussions with some of you in the future.

Thanks,
BB

Welcome.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Hey and welcome!

Are you from Shreveport?

Baton Rouge, here.

I'm actually "from" Tyler, Texas but a thinking person can only live in the nineteenth century for so long, so I moved to Shreveport about seven years ago.

Not that it's remarkably different here. I think the percentage of backward people is about the same but, there are more people here so a slightly better chance of meeting like minded individuals.

lol, so I was right.

And yeah, I know Tyler. I used to live in Katy, so whenever I would drive from BR to Katy I would pass through Shreveport and Tyler.

Wind's in the east, a mist coming in
Like something is brewing and about to begin
Can't put my finger on what lies in store
but I feel what's to happen has happened before...

RE: A Brief Introduction
I see that you and I differ greatly on the definition of brief.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.

I had high hopes.
