Glad to have you! Welcome!

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

RE: Hello
Just a couple of questions, because I am curious, being a catholic what exactly prompted you to join here? Just perusing? Are you questioning? And, if I'm not being too intrusive, how did you find us and how long lurking before signing up? Just wondering! Shy

Right on, again good to have you. One question you didn't answer was how you came about finding us? I'm just interested at how comfortable believers come to find and join a heretical forum such as this and at what the fundamental reasons behind it might be.

RE: Hello
Well that's pretty easy, came across this forum when I was looking for a entirely different forum. It really is interesting, I've even seen atheists come on Christian or other religious forums for whatever their reasons may be. But it is always good to see peaceful conversations between others with different beliefs.

RE: Hello
I can dig it. Unfortunately many conversations with theists here don't tend to stay so peaceful. But there are those that can handle us. I hope you stick around, good dialogue between folks with such different world views is rare, and valuable, I think.

RE: Hello
Welcome Raven.

I'm glad evenheathen asked you those questions.

I was raised Catholic, my family and especially my parents are very attached to the Church.

I see that you say you are looking to meet new people and possibly make new friends, and that's great. Most of us, like me for example, will want to know about your beliefs. You will be prodded and poked for information and I expect you will have some questions yourself.

What immediately comes to mind is have you explored and questioned the rationality of virgin births and immaculate conceptions? Your avatar made me think of this.

Looking forward to a discussion.
