Hello, from Sweden
Just though I'd introduce myself. I'm 19 years old, half British, half Swedish. I grew up believing in God and Jesus and everything christian-related. As I grew older, I became more aware of the world, and became more logical and understood more about life. In my early teens, I had doubts about my beliefs, and went from a believer to an agnostic. After a lengthy process of thinking and looking for evidence and reason, I became an atheist, and have been for about 3 years.

Now, I don't buy into anything religious and never will, ever. It's asinine, illogical and stupid. I can go on and on for hours and hours of why I disagree and frown down upon religion, with all it's problems, flaws and illogical claims.

I joined this forum to meet and get to know others, expand on my atheism, and discuss everything from life, religion, atheism, whatever. I'm open minded and interested in what people believe and why.

Hello, I do hope you enjoy your time here.

Now I just have to ask... What do Swedes call the Swedish Chef?
I once heard comedian Adam Hills say Swedes he met called him the Norwegian Chef, but I feel the need to know first hand.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".
