Hi guys and gals,

While being bombarded one day with all sorts of religious mumbojumbo I somehow found myself at this website.

I'm 29 (though I will be 30 in 2 days *sigh*) and have never been religious. I think I tried once? I have been to church, many many years ago, but the only thing I can remember about it was the free sandwiches.

I'm an open athiest as is my hubby. In Australia I don't think it's too big a deal. I mean our Primeminister is an open athiest too, so that's got to tell you something. From what I can gather in the US being an athiest is the worst thing ever. I will never understand the blind faith some people have in a non corporeal entity that turns people into robots and villanises others for not getting on board.

Anyway, I'm going to wonder around the site and see what's up Big Grin

Have a great day
Maqi

But it is easy to understand how unscrupulous people take advantage of that weakness.

When I find myself in times of trouble, Richard Dawkins comes to me, speaking words of reason, now I see, now I see.

Just look at crazy people in your country and consider them the average person on the street. The real fun part is that we still have people who we call crazy @_@

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.
