RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hey all,
I am a relatively new atheist who was once a fundamentalist Christian (and apologist) for nearly 20 years (currently residing in San Diego, CA). Yes, I was once debating AGAINST you online! LOL. Well, not you literally but you get what I mean. For years I used every rationalization and spin tactic to justify what I now see as an utterly irrational system of belief (i.e. Christianity). Through challenging my own beliefs I experienced what Dan Barker calls a "gradual migration" out of religion and toward reason and critical thinking.

I hope to have some great discussions here as I now hold an advanced degree in Philosophy and love rational discourse.

Hi,

Thank you for your service.
I had an Uncle who was with the NYPD.
He died a few years ago; in retirement, not on-the-job.

Hey! Be careful out there, OK?

Hey, everyone.

I'm a forty-something from small town New Brunswick, Canada.

I live smack dab in the middle of fundy crazy.

Glad I found this place.

Of all the negative aspects of religion.. none of them to be more profoundly damaging to human dignity & self-respect than the Threat of Hell l~Drew Stedman~

Threatening People with eternal torture in Hell is an insult disguised as compassion. An insult to the intelligence of a person.~Robin Gething~

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hello, my name is Lakota! I am a sixteen year old boy in high school and I love science. I was raised as a Christian and it took me until eighth grade to realize that I was living a lie. I am now an outspoken atheist and love nothing more than to get into an argument with someone who thinks I am "The Devil's Child." That is pretty much all there is to say about me! Smile Hobo
