A Newcomer Approacheth
Hello all. My name is Erik and I've been frequenting TheThinkingAtheist for a few months now (I actually have it set as my homepage) and finally decided to get around to joining the forum.
I've been an atheist for a bit over 4 years now and a lot has gone on in that time. I went to and graduated college for animation, moved back and forth between Windsor and Chatham (Ontario) a few times, and have found my position on religion slowly altering. I used to be very apathetic but now am an anti-theist.
I guess I decided to join now because I've been posting a lot of informal short essays on atheism on my Tumblr so it's become something I'm having a lot of fun discussing.
For the last several months, I've found myself watching just about every interesting video I could find on YouTube featuring Richard Dawkins or Sam Harris and began, only a few days before his death, watching Christopher Hitchens as well.
I read The God Delusion and am currently reading Penn Jillette's new book, 'God, No!', both of which I really enjoy.
Well, I guess if I keep just listing off things about myself, this will never end so I'll just leave it here. Have a nice day.

RE: A Newcomer Approacheth
Welcome, Erik. You can extend your reading list to include
Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, Daniel C. Dennett, and Victor J. Stenger.

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