*Peeks around the corner... *
Hey, everybody! I'm new here!

So, I guess I should say things about me...

I wasn't raised in any religion, but I converted to pentecostal christianity when I was a teenager. I spent about 15 years in a cultural blackout until I came to my senses about 7 or so years ago. I broke free of the cult with a shell of faith still intact, and curiosity as to why I'd been sucked into that for so long. I read a book, The Belief Instinct by Jesse Bering, to better understand what I'd been through, and it convinced me once and for all that no god exists.

I earn my living as a software consultant, and I am a mom to a pretty kick-ass 11 year old son. I love to play modern strategy tabletop games, and I'm a classically trained singer. I'm also a voracious consumer of pop culture, having lived without it for so long.

I dig online communities, and I'm excited to jump in here!

Nice to meet you!

Wow !
Welcome. There are some classical musicians here, and a few people who know a lot about it. Even though I play, Vera probably knows a wider variety of repertoire than I do, and has great taste. Glad to have you. What sorts of things do you sing ? Hope you do more than "peek" around the corner. Tongue

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

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.
