My brother is still a minister in the Southern Baptist world.

While I certainly find it impossible to believe in the supernatural I believe that one of the biggest problems we face as a species is the seemingly never ending question of what happened at T=0?

I'm guessing that you and your brother discuss this. I can hear him say: Oh yeah! so why can't it be god that started it all?"

Well, evidence fresh out today from those sciencey-types...
There was a prime mover and it was Allah!

How would your brother feel about that?

Oh, and welcome aboard.

Right, or one of the other nearly endless number of deities that have existed or still exist to this day.

Hi. Long time podcast listener, video viewer.

Here are the gory details:
51 year old white hetero male. DOB 19610306
Sometimes bearded (whiter every time), always mustachioed, always a shaved head.

Let's see if this smiley translates: ( ;-{)> Nope.

Born an atheist. Never needed to be born again. Always a messy proposition.
Made occasional futile attempts to contact God (self) as a tormented teen, but always determined that talking to oneself silently in this way was a waste of time and I could never fool myself. I have fooled myself many times in other ways, but could never get the god fooling thing to work. Decided at 16 that I was agnostic, in retrospect, I was an apatheist for years, as I was too busy trying to live and get by and just didn't care one way or another. When I discovered skepticism, freethinking and atheist writings, my suspicions were validated and I admitted to myself that it was time to get off the fence. The pickets were starting to leave painful indents.

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Im Leonardo, a 14 y/o student, who lives in Monterrey, Mexico.

I've been rised by an atheist father and a religious mother, but she didnt got to pull me into religion, I'm an open atheist and I belive that just any religion could, or could not be true, and we will not know it untill its too late to tell about it, so, why bothering trying? I just try to learn everything I can from everything around me.

I really like extreme sports, such as hang-gliding, motorcross, and latley ive been introduced to downhill and I'll give it a try

I also practice martial art, especially kung-fu, ive been practicing for some years and I'm just trying to get better everyday Smile

Where's the thread that's organizing the legal prosecution of church leaders for organized crime? I'd like to see if I can contribute to the cause of bringing those genocidal/paedophilic criminals to justice.
Surely there's a thread like that on a forum dedicated to atheism, isn't there?

Welcome, you should fit in quite nicely.

However, not fitting in can be quite amusing, too.

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