Hey
New guy here. Mid 50's, born & raised Catholic but never went to church after I moved out of my parents house at 18. Was always a bit skeptical but still had a belief in god up until about 10 years ago because I had just never really thought deeply about it. As soon as I really started to actually think about the concept of god & especially the Christian god of the bible it became almost immediately apparent that it was all just a gigantic BS story.

I think a lot of people are in the same place I was. Non-religious, not really thinking much about it & living their lives as if "Well, sure, there might be a god but I don't really think much about it because I've got other shit to worry about than some god who I never see or hear from."

I think the trigger for me was one day I simply got sick of politicians trying to justify their actions and positions on the claim that there is a god & they know what he wants. Really, you know the mind of god? Prove it. They had just gotten away w/throwing that claim out there for so many years I think they're now just shocked when someone asks them back it up.

In any case, cool forum, thanks for having me. Cheers.

RE: Hey
Welcome. The hors d'oeuvres are over there, the bar is at the back.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
