Smile Hello from Florida!
Hi everyone! I'm brand new here, I used to be a Christian, but I have been questioning religion and researching various beliefs for the past few years and only recently admitted (to myself and a few others) that I'm an atheist. Since then I've been devouring atheist content to determine what I do believe now. My fascination and curiosity for science have also been rekindled (it was so discouraged by the churches I had been involved in). I was very happy to hear about this forum from the podcast. (A coworker recommended the podcast, and I'm so grateful!) I look forward to being a part of this community of freethinkers. Smile

Welcome! A few of us are from Florida (myself included). I hope you'll be able to have some interesting and enjoyable conversations here.

Awesome, it's great to know there are fellow Floridians here! And thank you, I hope so, too. Smile

RE: Hello from Florida!
My dad's family are from south Florida. I lived in Miami for a summer, to try to get to know them. Then I got a job in another state as quickly as I could manage it. (No it wasn't the heat; I'm from south Louisiana.) That state generally terrifies me.

But we're glad you're here. Lots of us are people whose love of science won out over our preprogrammed willful ignorance. I hope you find this place as helpful as I did. There are some good people here. Smile
