Hi from Perth Western Australia

Hi Everyone, let me introduce myself, I am a 60yr old woman from Perth WA, an atheist, freethinker, humanist, naturalist and other labels I care to give myself, I'm also anti-theist.  I'm also an ex-christian, 'escaped' from the IFB's (Independent Fundamental Baptists) 11 years ago.  It's great to be free, totally liberating, how could I ever have been so deluded, anyway, glad to be a part of this team of rational thinkers.

Welcome, from the other side

Welcome, from the other side of the continent, (Brisbane).

I never bought it.

That's a long time to spend in the depths of delusion, but at least you did break free.

The religious meme has some strong hooks into our hopes and fears.

 

Favorite oxymorons: Gospel Truth, Rational Supernaturalist, Business Ethics, Christian Morality

"Theology is now little more than a branch of human ignorance. Indeed, it is ignorance with wings." - Sam Harris

The path to Truth lies via careful study of reality, not the dreams of our fallible minds - me

From the sublime to the ridiculous: Science -> Philosophy -> Theology

From Seattle area with love and solidarity!

Welcome to the forum! It's good to hear you escaped the insanity. From half way across the globe near Seattle, WA, this youngen' (24) says GREETINGS!

Welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum.

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare
