Hello to all.
Hello to all the other unbelievers. I was raised a Seventh-Day Adventist and for a while back in grade school I liked the idea of all of us really looking into who we are and why we are here. Also it was a cultural American thing with roots in the American revolution.

I guess I still like philosophical questions of who we are and why we are here. However I think that religion is just a mechanism of social control. They bring someone like me in by saying that they inquire into man's origins and reasons for existing, and by presenting the study of creation as science.

For the most part, all this degenerates over a few days into a lot of authoritarian preaching.

I'm here to meet some like minded people.

Welcome. I had a pilot friend many years ago who said he was a recovering adventist. For him the process involved copious amounts of alcohol. Tongue

Welcome aboard, glad you found us. Let me know if you have any questions. I dabble in the dismantlement of religion here and there.
