You and me are going to get along juuuuuuust fine. Welcome.

I'm a converted agnostic to Christian. Don't see much of my kind.

That would be interesting to know what made you convert.. because often Agnostic will go Atheist, not the other way around. Please do elaborate.

Don't know how to explain it. Was driving in my car one day after work, and my whole thought process and belief system suddenly changed. I was an active warrior against Christians; however, without warning, God decided to change me because He had a different plan for me. I quite literally had an instant change that completely altered my life, and I can't explain it.

Well let's see... the brain does play special tricks when a trauma happens, it's a defensive mechanism that have been observed by neurologist for years. If I were to tell you my whole life story, one would ask why am I not a believer. To resume this quickly my mom died when I was 3 years old, leaving me and my little 1 year old sister... I am from one of those countries where orphans children belong to the state and are often hired by drug dealers, the army to become infant-soldier or just dies from malnutrition. I was lucky enough to be adopted at 4, and my sister was adopted with me. Even though my dad was only looking into adopting 1 child, he decided that if there was place for one, there was also place for two.

Now a Christian would come to me saying that god had a plan for me. Well perhaps I would have believed it when I was younger but not anymore. 2 years after my arrival my parent divorced, I was raised in a very small village, people of my skin colour and race could be counted on one hand, therefore I was in a very imbecilic community who had no idea of the external world. For them the norm was to be caucassian and roman catholic. Got baptized at 7 years old in front of my whole school (2000 students). And through the year it was hell living there.

So was that god's plan to make me suffer some more by having me go from one side to another, end up 6 years in foster family, 2 years in the army etc etc. I could blame God and find reconfort in the bible and waiting like million of people do around the planet and wait the sign that will never come. Instead of blaming god and blaming everyone around I decided to use the strengh I have gain from this hard life and apply it to my will to stay alive... this was not a decision from GOD it was my decision... GOD did not send me to the army, my dad did, got did not write my essay in Sociology, I did.

Whatever happens in your life, may be chance, perhaps something else and the reason why you can't explain it is because it is beyound you... but there's so many things that are beyound you right now... and if you were a person of logic and suddenly turn to the magic, this means that you never really did have faith in your own beliefs or logic, therefore you never was totally Agnostic, you were a believer waiting for a sign. And really... this god Dodgy, that god of Yeshua Sad, Moises, Israel... is that to this God you turned yourself too? I raise my eyebrows. But it is your choice. But remember Joan Of Arc, she too was convince that God spoke to her, but in state of delirium tremens and high fever I can guarantee you that anyone will hear voices.

Get back your reason dude... you can believe in a higher power, but a murderer deity like Yaweh I can't believe you turn to that. No offense Wink

No offense taken. I just find it ironic that one of the first things said to me on this forum is "don't preach".

And yet, just in this topic, I've had a couple of people "preaching" to me trying to convince me that my way of thinking is silly. Not really sure how this is any different than the pushy, preachy theists that many of you vilify.

Hey, I use to be an active member on this forum, but then my computer decided to fail so I lost access, but now I am back!

It's been a while since I have last been on, so quick update, I recently got accepted to the United States Naval Academy for the class of 2017 (I will be attending the Naval Academy Prep School first) and I joined my schools debate team! (I'm definitely more excited about the former)

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
I'm a troll and only fire can harm me, im also some other mystical creature but i forget what. I thought very hard on how to introduce myself, i'm so paranoid about giving away too much information. I suppose lies that are meant for fun are only harmfull when it comes at anothers expense.

A brief heads up.
I have been know to be pedant to the point of excess, very fussy about semantics when i have a point to make, which will probably get in the way of the point i want to make even thought there's not much point to making points, not nowadays anyway. I don't like smilies because sometimes i don't know what they mean, and i think it's wierd to say "have a nice day" to someone despite it being my favourite well wish. My favourite colour is green, i prefer cats rather than dogs but i'm more likely to own a dog. It makes sense to me to write a welcome message before i fill in my profile, i hate it when the spell checker wants me to make every i a capital I, and the sound of running water does not make me want to go to the toilet.

I look forward to much more of the same in the forum.

PS. if your not sure, then yes (or no).

Hello all,

I am an open atheist from Louisiana. I have been listening to Seth for a couple weeks now and read some of the posts.

I decided to post today and maybe participate more in the threads. Look forward to more interesting posts!

Thanks Smile
