So I just caught a mosquito with my hand...
...and now have half digested blood smeared all over it. It was a very fat mosquito.

Ain't that some introduction.

Well, I come from a pretty catholic family in a pretty catholic country. The funny thing is, my mom who was the most religion-inclined person in our household, was the first one to tell me that the old testament is bollocks and I shouldn't believe a word of it. According to her, the only important things in the bible are Jesus' teachings. So I kinda had a headstart when I begun to have doubts regarding the church's teachings.

I didn't become a full fledged atheist until I started watching videos and reading about idiots arguing against evolution. That doesn't happen here in Argentina. We are taught evolution in school and everyone just kinda takes it for granted (I'm guessing it has to do with the majority of the population being catholic). Since it's a subject so directly related to religion, it wasn't long until I started reading about topics a bit more blaspehmous, if you will. And here you have me.

Some more stuff: I'm a girl, I'm 22, I'm majoring in biotechnology and I apologize for any grammar mistakes since I stopped taking English lessons a while ago.

I don't know what else should go in an introduction, so have some music!

I was a biology student too, had experiences which genetic engineering, botany and ecology.

Welcome to the forum.

Biology(anthropology) and history are always good ways to atheism.

Want something? Then do something.

I like your Mom, Girly also only reads the Red Letters and discounts the commentary from the peanut gallery. I can interpret them all by myself, thankyouverymuch, don't need no help from religion. I ain't a child. Tongue

But enough of this small talk. Get yer ass back to work building me an artificial pancreas 'cause my sugars are high and some artificial testicles 'cause my testosterone is low and I'm tired of rubbing this Androgel shit on every day. Big Grin

Nice intro music video too. Thumbsup

Can't go wrong with Oingo Boingo. Thumbsup

I was raised Catholic, too, so being taught real science was never a threat to religion made the shock of meeting bible-as-literal-truth fundies made the shock even deeper. It was like looking at circus carnies, only the sign above their heads read "Delusional Morons."
