Why are you here on TTA?
My reason for being here is to find reason. My reasoning is that I think what I think for a reason. I would like to think my reasons for thinking such things are reasonable. But others may have reasons for reasoning differently, and the only reasonable way to find better reasons for thinking what I think is to listen to others reasons for thinking what they think. If their reasons are more reasonable than my reasons, by changing my reasoning I become a more reasonable person.

Sound reasonable?

Huh? Tongue

I think that's very reasonable.

I'm here because I'm too chicken to tell anyone in my real life that I'm an atheist, so I use the forum as an outlet to keep my brain from exploding. It's nice to come here after a long day of biting my tongue.

I like to read other people's viewpoints on a subject that is important to me. Particularly when it can help me verbalize something.

I like being part of a community of like-minded, intelligent people from around the world. It's also nice to get different perspectives that are backed by reason and research ^.^

Dunno, really. I just started looking for atheist forums and found this place soon after it was formed. I signed up.

And now you know the rest of the story.

Well I found that if I wanted to annoy a group of people the religious ones would always start some debate that wasn't very fun, so I figured I'd annoy some of my own kind.

RE: Why are you here on TTA?
I originally came here with the sole purpose of m first rant-post. Tongue I had just come out as gay and an atheist to my fundy family and had no atheist friends and I really needed to let out my feelings and this was the first link to an atheist forum I found. xP

Now I'm here because I enjoy the community, and I still don't have many atheist friends! I can call some of you guys friends, at least. Tongue

I am 100% certain that I am wrong about something I am certain about right now. Because even if everything I stand for turns out to be completely true, I was still wrong about being wrong.

I came for the chicks.

Plus, I was told there was free beer.

RE: Why are you here on TTA?
I joined up on here to also speak with like minded people. In my experience a person who calls himself/herself an athiest is different from someone who simply does not belive in a god or gods. All my athiest friends are well read and are constantly learning more and more about whats around us. They are not geniuses by any means but logic and reason makes up most of their intelligence. Other reasons for me being on her are:

1) Have a good rant from time to time
2) Argue with the god boys
3) Maybe even convert a thiest into opening his mind up and setting him free. (tough)

It's easy to think people are listening to you, but in actual fact they are just waiting for their turn to speak.
