Hello there, folks
I would like to introduce myself. Hello there, folks. I'm Albert-Jan. At 27 years old I've been an atheist for around 15 years old. Being brought up in a Dutch Reformed Protestant household I was indoctrinated with christianity. After being disillusioned by the bible and telling my parent I found out theat my father was an atheist as well, he'd humoured my mother who was than religious and now also a proud non-theist. I reside in the Netherlands which is not quite as secular as many people seem to think. As I enjoyed this podcast for the last months I'd figuere that I might as well join this merry band of infidels.

Yours sincerly,

AJ
I came about the forum through the podcast. When I get fed up with religious BS I usually listen to atheist podcast to clear my head. I'm a strong supporter of strong atheism which I define as "The notion that the a god exists in any practical sense is so unlikely that we might as well not bother believing in it, let alone worshipping it". I'm very vocal on that standpoint because I have the right, just like the religious folk, to state my point of view. Seeing as I grew up with the bible and I'm very well versed in its content, my arguments with religious people tend to be short. During these I am civil if they are also, I just knock down their arguments with their own scripture.

Aside from that I also practice kickboxing, which in my opinion is the best stress-release in this universe. Also I enjoy playing Magic the Gathering with friend (we are nerds and proud of it) and going to the pub. I study psychology at the university and make my living as a certified cabdriver. If you have any questions just ask Wink

Hey,
Welcome to the forum. Another fellow European.
I came to the forum through the videos on YT. Glad I did. Hope you enjoy yourself as much as I do.
Just two questions:
1.What's your poison ?
2.How long have you been a kick-boxer ?

Atheism is a religion like OFF is a TV channel !!!

Proud of my genetic relatives Big Grin
