Wink New Guy here
Hello everyone. My name is Todd. I'm new to the forum, though I've been a fan of the podcast for over a year now and look forward to it every week. I'm a 43 year-old gay man, born and raised in the south and dragged kicking and screaming into church as a kid. About 10 years ago, my bombarded brain finally had its fill of nonsense and sent religion packing for good. I never "grappled" with anything as some people like to say. I just dropped it all like a hot potato, quite unceremoniously. I've picked up a few new friends along with the way, namely reason and reality.

I still have family members deeply steeped in absurdities and superstitions, so I deal with that on a regular basis and have precious few atheists or flaming heathens like myself to interact with in the real world. I try to get through it all with humor and beverages.

If it's not freethought, it's costing you.

Welcome, Todd. Good to have you here.

Religious disputes are like arguments in a madhouse over which inmate really is Napoleon.

Welcome! Always room for another GrittyHeathen.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Welcome. Gritty is good. Heathen is excellent.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Welcome to the TTA family. : )

Bury me with my guns on, so when I reach the other side - I can show him what it feels like to die.
Bury me with my guns on, so when I'm cast out of the sky, I can shoot the devil right between the eyes.
