Broken Egg Timer
Hello all. I am from Maine, USA.

As a five-year-old, I'd received a play kitchen set that included an egg timer. I broke the egg timer apart because I had to know for sure whether it was salt or sugar inside. That kind of curiosity and the 'need to know' what is true based on empirical evidence ultimately delivered me from the grip of religion.

After being molested for years by my father from the age of nine, I began to 'break apart' the religious beliefs so ironically taught to me by him. I wondered why he could go to heaven by simply asking for forgiveness for what he did to me, while I would go to hell for simply questioning my beliefs.

So despite the serious emotional damage he caused by the molestation that's lasted all my life, I can be grateful that the seed was planted by the abuse to question, and finally discard my god beliefs.

"We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly."

Hello Gawdamn.

What a rough start in life. I know that is never easy. No

Sounds like you'll make a nice addition to the group. Glad to have you join us!
