Howdy from Dallas, TX
Hello everyone. My name is Jon, but IRL most people know me as 'Rook'. I'm 25, originally from Tulsa, OK but have been living in Dallas for almost 3 years now.

Not to get into my whole life story, but I was raised in a very conservative Southern Baptist family and was very involved in the church until I was 20 or so. Like the typical story goes, I started asking questions and doing some research to "strengthen my faith". Before I knew it, I realized that the opposite was happening. I struggled with it for a while, mostly because I was still terrified of spending eternity in hell. Eventually, I was able to work through that and began identifying myself as an atheist about 4 years ago. As scary/painful as the process often was, it's been the best thing that's ever happened to me and I am SO glad to be free of the shackles of religion and superstitious thought.

Anyway! I've been a fan of Seth and the podcast for a while now but for some reason had never gotten involved with the forum. So, I figured, it's about time! Shy Looking forward to some good discussions and maybe making a few friends too!
