I'm Sap
Name: Sap

Current Belief System: Atheist

Former Belief System: Church of God (or as Seth so perfectly says sometimes, Gaw-yudd)... yes, the speaking in tongues and dancing in the holy spirit kind

Stats: Married, father of 3, late 30's, civil engineer and Army Reservist.

Was sort of a closeted atheist for a few years. Came out to my parents a few years ago. They keep trying to have conversations about it, but I just ignore it. I'm out, I don't believe, I love them, but that's pretty much all there is to that story. It just so happens, that as I've come to my own non-belief, I realize now that my mother's father was also an atheist. Nobody ever talked about that when I was growing up, but the things he believed and talked about, while never outright saying he didn't believe in a diety, now make so much sense to me. I wish he was still alive so that I could discuss it with him. I think he would have been happy to have an ally in the family. I wish I could have been that ally for him before he died.

Oh well, anyway, that's my intro. Not the best intro, but there it is. I look forward to getting to know you folks.

RE: I'm Sap
kingschosen... ummm, I feel like there is a reference or joke I'm missing.

Trying to break this down. Must be a reference to sap, like from a tree, and amber being fossilized sap? Maybe. I think I get it now. No. My name is not a reference to sap from a tree. It's short for sapper... combat engineer... 12B in Army lingo. But I shorten it to help keep me just a tad bit safer from potential targeting by radical terrorists who might try to find military personnel online and kill them. It's statistically unlikely I'll be targeted, but at least I can say that I try to protect myself when my Army bosses ask what my protective measures are.

I know. I'll try unsuccessfully to not make that happen again. Dodgy

Good to have you here. Like the podcast, this is a global forum - lots of different perspectives. It's all good ... if you don't step in too much troll poo.
