Hey, I'm Matt from New Hampshire. 30yo father of two wonderful boys. I'm in school for EMS and then nursing and very interested in biological evolution.
NH is very odd for atheist. It's a libertarian state so we're all like "you have every right to be an idiot".

Anyway, I'm mostly here as An observer but every once and a while I cant help but throw my 2 cents in.

Feel free to contribute, Spade. We have several motorcycling enthusiasts here, self included, and we're big fans of those in the EMS/EMT profession.

Check out the "Photoshop Jesus" thread to see what Christians seem to think of what's really behind your skillset. Rolleyes

And welcome to TTA!

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hello! My name is Kenya and I've been "in the closet" so to speak for a good 15 years. I started doubting religion in high school. I grew up in the south with very christian parents/family. They were the church every sunday, drinking and screaming the other 6 day types. I thought that I was on the fence about my beliefs, but just recently I finally realized that wasn't the issue. Deep down, I knew I was atheist, I was just on the fence about having the courage to say it out loud. I found out about a group I would love to join in my area and realized I can't because then people may find out.... can't like certain things on facebook, family might see it.... you would think I was in some secret underground terrorist group or something the way I felt the need to hide. I finally said enough is enough. Talked to my husband (who is christian) and he understood. He wasn't surprised. My struggle with faith was never hidden from him. He's supportive of my wishes. We will each be honest with our (4) kids and let them make their own choices. He doesn't plan to go to any Humanist meetings with me, and understands that I have no desire to go to church with him. I told my mom today.... that was hard. She basically said if I don't see the face of god in my kids, then I must not truly love them. That hurt, I won't lie. Although I know it's bogus and just part of the brainwashing I'm still coming out of, I did have a moment of guilt. Then I looked at the wonder of my 2 year old dancing like a ballerina in front of me, listened to our cat quietly purring beside me and watched the sun lighting up a patch of the backyard and creating a mosaic of shadows and realized this is enough. Science is amazing and wonderful enough. It's time to move on with my life. Thanks for reading if you still are... so glad to find an active forum. Looking forward to making some friends!

Hi,

I joined up a couple of days ago, have been a "godless heathen" (mother's terms) since I was 12 and decided having a bible as consolation for the death of my father was a) crap and b) showed what a dickhead yahweh is. I'm a retired police officer from the UK (Metropolitan) with a brain injury (religion related) but am happy trying to read science & philosophy at my own pace (no short term memory).

I'm a totally out atheist, and the only one where I live.

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
I think some of us need to get more original Life Stories. We basically have only two:

Story One: Everyone is horrible to me because I won't accept their obviously flawed (local version of this one subvariant of a) fairy tale full of human psychological projections and glaring errors of such a fundamental level that even an elementary scientific understanding can prove them wrong in seconds. I have to fight to not be swamped in a sea of hatred and ignorance, and despite all that I have attained great knowledge about science, history, and theology in the process of debunking all the lies and/or ignorance that is slung, constantly, in my direction.

Story Two: Never been religious. Never had a problem. Then I met some religious people and wow, those people were effing bugnuts!!! Glad I never was one of those lunatics.

That's about all I see posted here. I'm in category one.
