RE: My introduction
Nice to meet you, thanks for sharing your story Smile

I'm sorry for what you're going through, and I hope we can help you feel a bit better.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

RE: My introduction
Seagull,

Thanks for all the info on silkworms and silkmoths. I always love to learn new things in the natural sciences. There are so many birds in the area I live that we don't get to see many moths, and they really are beautiful creatures. I looked up photos of cocoons, and they must make great decorations, just like my beloved rocks and minerals. Big Grin

Welcome.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

I'm Alex and I'm from Connecticut originally, going to school in Rhode Island. I have been an atheist for years now and it encourages me to find like-minded people. In my teen years religion was forced on me and it still has its detriments now that I'm almost 21. The political climate isn't helping the matter and I feel worthless, alone, and distrusting most of the time. I'll get into the negative details at some other point in a different area of the forum.
On a better note, I am studying biology in college. I'm part of a lab. I grow many plants including different deciduous trees, carnivorous plants, orchids, and tropical fruit trees. I'm academically advanced for my age but on the spectrum and thus socially inept. I have a large collection of live moths and a few butterfly species too. I work with native silkmoths in my research. I also have several amphibians and a goldendoodle.
I love to bake and keep active (actually I have a compulsive need to move a certain amount and burn off every calorie I take in). I work part time in a deli (ironic since I'm vegetarian trying to go vegan) and I'm a huge Kesha fan.
So that's a brief intro to me.
Also my username is seagull because I make a good seagull sound and seagull was my high school nickname until I lost too much weight and adopted nicknames suchas tapeworm and skeletor.

Welcome I think you will fit in very well here we have lovely vegan people and folks who are on spectrum also other animal lovers. Once again a warm welcome to you. Smile

Hello Seagull. I wouldn't mind going vegetarian but don't really know how and besides there are some home situations that militate against it. However I've eaten at a couple of vegetarian restaurants and found the food excellent.

Today is the best day of my life and tomorrow will be even better.
