Well, hello dare!
Hi! I am 6ball. It is not a billiards reference. Nor a medical condition.
Just a nickname I assigned to myself years ago and it has stuck.
I was raise and indoctrinated by a well meaning, devout, catholic mom, and a dad that didn't really givea, but went along to keep peace in the house. I remember the day my daddy was christened, along with my youngest brother.
I learned how to think at an early age, and when I deduced that santa claus, the easter bunny and the tooth fairy were lies, I assumed the rest was lies as well. But, like my pa, kept my mouth shut, and went along. For a long time as an adult, I referred to myself in my own conversations with myself, as an agnostic, as I thought it was more intellectually honest than atheist. It does not assume facts not in evidence. It also doesn't carry the social stigma that the majority of the population in the US attach to the word "atheist". As I have aged, I have begun to out myself as an atheist to any who broach the subject with me. I do not start that conversation, but if asked, I am comfortable enough in my own skin to talk about it. Even debate, with those who take me on as their own special pet project when they learn of my status. BUT, I am not as literate as need be for some of those conversations, and THAT is why I am here. I comb the net for resources to fuel my knowledge so I can intelligently talk about my view of the universe. I appreciate all Seth does. What he says and how he says it are important. I am furiously working my way through the backlog, while trying to stay current.
I love, Love, LOVE finding like minded people!!

Truth does not demand belief. Scientists do not join hands every Sunday, singing, "Yes, gravity is real! I will have faith! I will be strong! I believe in my heart that what goes up, up, up must come down, down, down. Amen!" If they did, we would think they were pretty insecure about it.

Hiii Big Grin
Nice to meet you

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.
