You are very welcome here. Thumbsup

Hello everyone... I'm a late 20's math graduate student and atheist. Just living life, trying to not go any more insane than I currently am. Looking forward to some good discussions.

I live in SC. I'm a former minister who, after 25 years, left the ministry due to my reasoning my way out of religious faith.

I now teach in a local community college and enjoy sleeping in most Sundays!

There are many like you, FoilhatMike. Welcome to reason. Smile

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Thought I'd add this rather disjointed bio from my profile as my intro thread was lacking anything of substance Wink

A 31yo godless heathen destined to burn forever in the lake of eternal fire with the rest of the blaspheming heretics, sinners and sodomites... which actually sounds faintly reminiscent of a nightclub I used to frequent in my early 20's...

Likes: music, reading, cooking, alcohol, Football (Soccer FFS!), meeting new people, sloth, greed, gluttony & casual adultery.

Dislikes: intolerance, ignorance, tabloid journalism, people who idolise braindead celebrities, alpha males & 'lad' culture.

Open minded, liberal, openly gay but feel no need to be proud as I don't let it be my sole defining trait. There's also not a great deal that I take too seriously (there's a shocker)!

I was also going to add 'fairly intelligent' to that list, but a few days on here and I feel the need to drop my self evaluation down several rungs on the ladder compared to you lot!

That's all I can think of, so clear off! Big Grin

Hi Everyone -

I'm a 61 yr old Atheist from West Des Moines, Iowa. It's harder to out yourself as an Atheist than it is to be LGBT still. Only a few folks know my true beliefs. I am culturally catholic.

Welcome aboard. I agree, that in today's politically charged climate, the vocal majority is opposed to equal rights for believers and nonbelievers. I'm optimistic that in the not too distant future, being open about non belief will be an afterthought. Until then, we've got each others backWink

Welcome to TTA.

Sorry to hear you are so downtrodden because of your beliefs!
I hope your time here can help you deal with your difficulties! Hug

On a side note, Des Moines does ring a bell for me as I am a massive Bill Bryson fan! Big Grin

Hi! I am a 35 yo Humanist, healthcare worker, & current engineering student from Western Virginia. I would bet I am living in the most religious area in the country. Shew, maybe I can take a breath of fresh air with fellow free thinkers! I hope to enjoy the various, intellectual topics on this board.
