I'm Seth. Recovering Christian. Former religious broadcaster, now atheist activist. Engaged to Natalie. Owner of Rat Dog.

I want an autograph from Roger Federer...

Hello Seth and welcome to the forum. I hope your stay here with us is going to be fruitful and pleasant.

I can't help you with Roger Federer, but maybe I could help you with Goran Ivanisevic autogram. He lives in my town...

You could ask Goran to ask Roger for an autograph...

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hi, Seth...Hi, all!

I'm a (rather) newly "out" atheist, but I have actually been questioning faith, and searching for the faith that "made sense to me" for about the past 20 years. Having been stymied with just about every Christian sect, Judaism, Buddhism, and even the Mormons, I realized that the reason none of this made sense was that it was in direct conflict with my science-oriented mind. I stopped searching after having a pretty severely special-needs child. I was so mad at any type of god that would allow my son to go through the suffering he's experienced in his 8 years on this Earth.

Eventually, my atheist Libertarian friends urged me to explore atheism. I took their advice and started listening to Hitchens' and Dawkins' audiobooks, and **CLICK!** Everything made sense!

My wife, a former believer and former Catholic school-girl, has been incredibly supportive and has sort of taken this journey with me since our marriage. She's not willing to declare herself atheist, and in fact she has been urging me to NOT come out with family, who are a large part of our support structure, as two of her Great Aunts are Catholic nuns, her grandmother is fervently Catholic, and her mother more of a "cafeteria Catholic".

Anyhow - that's me in a very quick nutshell. I feel incredibly happy to have found the podcast and this community. I look forward to engaging in the discussions and debates contained within it's virtual walls.

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
So Seth finally makes an appearance?

What is your take on the American Atheists and the monument in Florida. Atheists seem to be becoming a bit too organized for my taste. I think it's a problem when one can quote on a monument 'An atheist believes .......' We like to say things such as a person who doesn't skateboard isn't an askateboarder but no one makes claims that askateboarders believe in or don't believe in something.
