RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hello everyone. At least, I think this is where I introduce myself.

My username is ZoraPrime. I am new here. Oh, I guess I'm an atheist too, but that probably isn't surprising given what forum I am on. My childhood, growing up, was rather secular with the most amount of religion being involved were weekly church visits with family until I was about ten. Currently, I am a physics undergraduate; planning on going to graduate school next year (same institution; not for the academics per se but because I want to continue doing research now that I'm finishing up training). As you might suspect, science is a big interest of mine given my major; and more so than any other discipline has influenced me. Most of the books I read are popular science books, such as Randall's "What If?" or Dawkin's "Greatest Show on Earth" and other such books. I suppose that's enough about myself for now.

In either case, howdy!

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Greetings, from a 'born-again' atheist!

I am a naturalist/wildlife educator in the Bible Belt. I grew up attending a United Methodist church in a (generally) moderately religious family. I love doing research into things that interest me, science in particular, which had me waffling on my faith for quite some time. A couple of years after I graduated from college, I decided I was agnostic. In the last few months, I've reconverted to atheism.

Being in a smaller town (pop: 17,505), I am constantly surrounded by conservative Christian rhetoric, even at work. It's very isolating to feel like I can't join in on discussions involving current events, philosophy, LGBTQ equality, etc., because the vast majority of the locals, including my coworkers, are fairly vocally religious. I am looking for a community of some kind to connect with, since there seems to be none at my physical location.

I'm in England. Been reading this forum for a while. Always had a fascination with the way religion has impacted on history and so I've tried to research as much as I can about it - both history and religion. Haven't believed in any religion for a while - largely to the research throwing up so many contradictions and illogical argumentsNoDodgy

I'm a stay at home Mom of 3, and getting increasingly annoyed at the persecution of humanists like myself. Seems I can't say anything rational these days without pissing off someone.

Hey y'all

I'm a 22 year old college graduate living in Southern California, fishing for a sustainable career. I have a Degree in Mechanical Engineering and am working on honing my skill set, particularly in drafting, manufacturing and reliability analysis.

Through the latter half of High-School, I had turned from Catholic to Agnostic, where lingered for the past few years. This year I started following reading op-eds and physicist accounts regarding the origin of the universe that marshaled my inevitable turn to the dark side.
