G'Day from Australia
Hello, I'm 18 from Australia. I've been atheist since I was 8. I used to be quite a fundie (even being so young and despite being raised in an agnostic/buddhist family, my parents simply let me find out for myself).

I lost my faith via starving myself for several days in hope that God would answer my prayers. And I am so thankful that my religion teacher told us how she prayed for a parking spot, to which Jesus answered her prayers, because when I told my parents this, they said, "Pray to God for food then." Tough love yes, but it changed my train of thought. When I confronted my religion teacher about the existence of God as he didn't answer my prayers, she said "Do not question Gods existence, without God, the bible wouldn't exist," to which I replied "Without Batman there is no justice." I've had many years to explore the nature of science and all the marvels that are being discovered and it just keeps getting more interesting.

I am a uni student doing a Bachelor of Business Management hoping to Major in Marketing, and perhaps adding Law as a dual degree. I've played representative cricket, and standard competition tennis, am half-asian, enjoy reading thriller novels and yeah that's all really.


So yeah, that's my little spiel about myself

Welcome to the forum.

I actually suggested starting the church of batman earlier this year, but not enough people got on board the idea.

Behold the power of the force!

I'm Canadian and I say aboot sometimes and I say eh all the time.

Depends on where they are from. Melbourne has a lot of accents that sound like British Jersey Shore. Darwin seemed a softer more British sounding accent.

British Jersey Shore must sound great!
Tasmanians sound pretty strange they call a creek a crick, and odd people rummins. Huh
