New to the forums
my name is Gary. I'm new to the forums here at the RRS site. i'm new to the site all together. i first heard of the RRS while cruising the youtube videos on debates. i came across the popular RRS vs. they way of the master ministries. i have to say that i really found it to be quite....well recycled. being an athiest for as long as i have, i of course understood every point that Kelly and Brian made. and then listening to Kirk and Ray was the same thing i've heard christians say over and over again. almost as if they don't quite understand the question. (i have to admit, the best part was the opening arguments in which ray and kirk are challenged to prove god without the use of biblical references, and the first thing Ray did was reference the bible.) but when they mentioned the RRS int he program i was interested. yeah, okay, partially because Kelly was pretty. but mostly because i've kinda reached the point where i think that religion is hurting humanity so much, that it's time to let it go. i used to subscribe to the whole "whatever gets you through the day" idea. but more and more it seemed like being a right wing religious zealot was cool again (if it ever was). well that worried me. with all the atrocities that are committed in the name of a god, i thought that it was only a matter of time before humanity sees some kind of global tragedy due to religion. as a concerned member of the human race i just felt it was my responsibility to try and help to steer folks away from this outdated belief system and into the 21st century idea of "question everything". thanks for having me and feel free to say hi!
