Hello Fellow Humans

Hello fellow humans. I am new to the Rational Response Squad. My name is Christopher. I am a high school math teacher in Ohio in America, where in reason, not god, we trust. I was a long non-practicing christian and then actually started reading all of the bible, opening my mind, acquiring as much knowledge as possible, and before I or my wife knew it, BLAM! I was an atheist. I don't really like labels, but if you needed to label me according to how I believe the universe works, then go ahead.  By the way my young blog is http://logicandreason-dibattista.blogspot.com/.

Welcome to the forum. I'm from Ohio most of the time (travel a bit for work). Great to hear we have at least one rational teacher in the state. 

It was morality that burned the books of the ancient sages, and morality that halted the free inquiry of the Golden Age and substituted for it the credulous imbecility of the Age of Faith. It was a fixed moral code and a fixed theology which robbed the human race of a thousand years by wasting them upon alchemy, heretic-burning, witchcraft and sacerdotalism.-H.L. Mencken
