I R Here
Howdy to everybody, I've admired the work of the RRS, and decided to come in and look around.
I'm a long time hard atheist and have been on the internet since there was an internet, mostly. I always use either Herk or Herkv as a nym so I may seem familiar. But then, there are lots of Herks out there.
I was raised Catholic and did all the parochial schools and altar boy and all that drivel, but it didn't take. I spent a few years after high school being agnostic and not caring, then was a Baha'i for about 14 years. One day, I was reading a book by Julian Jaynes and he mentioned that wouldn't it be nice if there was a god, but of course there isn't. I realized that he was right.
Now, as I enter my dotage, I enjoy hammering on fundies and I frequent a few non-believer forums.
