Rainbow Good Evening all!
Hi all,

I have been an avid listener to the podcast for probably over 2 years now and attribute it to my becoming an Atheist. (Thank you Seth!). I was always very religious growing up and eventually went on to earn an MA Divinity (hons.). After studying theology, ecclesiastical history and Biblical studies academically I began to have serious doubts about my (Catholic) faith. I later came to reject it as things were not adding up at all!!! Church history was all too human as was the Bible!

I finally thought I would create a profile on here and join in the discussion! (My username is a bit lame...sorry Seth for stealing part of your tag line but I just couldn't think of anything...... *looks a bit guilty)

I look forward to chatting to you all! Smile

Welcome, it's good to have another educated member.

But what do you do for a living?

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

RE: Good Evening all!
Thank you all! I am currently looking at different career options as i am not sure what to do with my life. I had originally planned to either go into some kind of ministry or go on to get my PhD in Divinity but now that I have lost my faith that doesn't appeal as much!

I haven't totally thrown out the possibility of studying for my PhD but I think I would rather go for a job with a more stable career path to be honest!!!!
