RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
I'm new to the forum, website, etc., and I'm happy to be here! I'm 40 y/o and in my adult life have been a proud atheists. My mother Buddhist and father Baptist never pushed me in any direction, or taught me about religion. They would just remind me that there is a god and I should believe in it. As an adult I now remind my parents that I’m atheist and they are a little bitter, but I just laugh because we never and I mean never went to church and they really didn’t do much to brain wash me in that direction (not that going to church would have made a different.) I think they aren't sure, but too scared to say they aren't sure. “Believe… just in case” is what I see in their eyes. lol.. oh well, I love them either way.

As for my life, my wonderful husband and I are raising our 2 smart boys with free will , open minds, and the curiosity of the world in it’s infinite universe.

-Cheers to everyone!

Hey babe.
If you hit my sister-in-law, I may have to discipline you.
And not in the way that you might enjoy. Wink

I love you, hylonome.

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hello! I'm a 31 year old male office worker living in PA. I've considered myself and Atheist for about 3 years before that I had called myself Agnostic since high school. I was raised in Dominican Republic in a Roman Catholic household. I even remember wanting to be a priest. I enjoyed singing, and I enjoyed going to church. I enjoyed being the center of attention. I don't recall having anything but a superficial understanding of scripture. I do remember asking many questions such as "But, what came before god?" and getting answers like "THAT"S JUST HOW IT IS, YOU DON'T ASK THAT!" Eventually I stopped questioning anything and anyone. I'm trying to get back my voice.

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hi, I'm a 36 year old Englishman. I've looked in to religion very seriously since I was 15. I considered myself Agnostic until about 24 then decided I had no choice but to acknowledge the obvious and I am an atheist.

I firmly believe that people can hold whatever world view they wish, as long as they accept the more outlandish it is the more evidence is required. I've tried a few forums before but never stuck with one, not that there's any particular reason for that... I've joined this one because I love the videos and podcasts AND the diversity of the callers on the show!

Religion isn't really a hot topic where I'm from (North East England) until someone finds out you DON'T believe then they're suddenly holier than thou (usually with 7 pints in them haha) so I've been confronted with all of the usual arguments and also some unexpected tolerance from the religious!

Finally... Hello Smile

I'll just play the 'can I help you' lick!!!
