RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hello all!

I'm a 23 year old "recovering" Catholic. I only very recently started accepting what I don't believe- what I haven't believed for a very, very long time. I'm also a chemistry graduate student, set to defend my master's thesis and become an official doctoral candidate in about a month! I have two birds and an amazing lover and best friend, who I couldn't have gotten this far without.

Here's hoping I make some new friends here, and gather support for what's going to be a bumpy ride as I further come to terms with my lack of God.

Welcome.
What branch of chemistry? I was a fan of physical chemistry back in uni.

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

Definitely not physical chemistry! I'm an analytical chemist, with a dash a chemical biology and synthesis thrown in for shits and giggles. Physical chemistry is not my favorite.

I've tried to buy it- I really, really have. Life would be easier if I believed.
But I just can't. And I don't. I'm an atheist.
Glad I'm here.

There is no "I" in "team" but there is a broken and mixed up "me."

I don't know a lot about real atheism, nor do I personally know many who profess to be atheists. I hope to learn more from this site.

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Okay, so i was browsing my posts, and realized something.

Good people! I have missed my introduction! (name the reference and i'll give you a cookie)

I'm Likos (Greek for wolf, altho I'm not greek, nor a wolf), and I'm from SoCal. I'm active duty Air Force, for the last 3 years and hopefully 17 more (as a note, I'm required to state that my views are not the views of the govt or the Air force). I'm married, have 1 handsome boy, and we are an Atheist family situated right in the middle of two christian ones. I also dabble in medieval history, and Hockey, when I'm not working or reading.

I'm also known on the internet as Gwarrar, or Gwarrar02 if you play xbox. If you know me, or would like to, send me a message!

Welcome, welcome, to all the recent new members.
Quite an influx recently.

Praise be!

But I couldn't let this pass by.

I think you'll find that those virtues are claimed to be Islamic, Buddhist etc etc. (if you get my drift).

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hey guys!
I'm a 19 year-old university student who is looking for enlightenment about some kind of religions. I'm closer deism than ateism, but i take a bright view of ateism. Because, in my opinion, knowledge can be in any place, and it should be reached. So i want to learn about what your thoughts are, what mine exactly are and what is more logical in that system.

We have all good and bad sides inside us. But what we are comes from our choices and attitudes.
