Wink Hi, everyone! Rebecca Ripple here.
Hi, everyone!

I'm Rebecca, a 28-year-old writer living in Massachusetts. I was raised in a reformed Jewish household, but I've been an atheist since I was in high school, with one brief exception back in 2008, when I took a few months' break and believed in the Baptist version of Christianity. That period of faith was over before 2008 was. Heh. Smile

I adore Seth Andrews' videos on YouTube, and though I can't usually keep my ears open for a podcast, I especially love his speeches from the FreeOK 2011 and 2013 conventions. I have them downloaded on my computer. Big Grin

I have Nonverbal Learning Disability (NLD), which is a mild form of autism. I love science, and I like to talk with other atheists about our understanding of history, the sciences, and the psychology of faith vs. doubt. Many of my friends believe in God in one way or another, but while they all know I'm an atheist, I don't feel as comfortable talking to them about atheism and religion. That, along with my admiration of Seth Andrews as a person and as a video producer, is why I joined this website.

One thing I simply must mention in this intro post is that I love animals, especially cats. Attached is a (very blurry, sorry!) photo I took of my little girl, Selena, who passed away last October, three days before my birthday. It is so quiet here without her. I miss her so much! :'( Feb. 1996 - Oct. 21, 2013 <3

I can't think of any more to say at the moment, but I hope you all have a great day.

Type at ya later,
Rebecca

Jews? Who lets Jews in here? What's next Muslims? Atheists? What ever happened to good old fashioned white Christian bigotry?
