New guy from Texas.
Hello everyone. I don't want to give a long, drawn out explanation as to why I've ended up here, so I will just say a few things. I grew up in a Lutheran church. The people were some of the kindest, loving people I've met to date. I started doubting my faith as a teenager, but held on for fear of "eternal suffering" and a constant battle between logic and what I'd been tought. Within the last few years, I've grown to find myself and be proud of what I believe in and who I am as a person. I've stopped being afraid of the term "atheist" and have welcomed that identity. The past few years I've felt the chains loosening and a wash of relief once they shattered. Anyways, I'm glad I found this forum and hope to have many wonderful conversations with many like minded individuals!

And a hearty welcome to you sir! Big Grin

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Howdy! You'll need a sense of humor here, these "characters" are full of it.

You'll find a lot of very smart folk making fools of themselves, but, yes, you will find those interesting conversations.
