Bored, thought I would join this forum to converse with fellow free thinkers, also have a concept I'm obsessed with that I will post in another area. Anyway I come from a moderate catholic family, for elementary and most of middle school I went to a private, protestant, christian school. I remember getting in trouble for having pokemon cards, in the middle of the ultra popular fad i asked why, the teacher told me it's because pokemon evolve.. and we don't believe in that lol. Anyway, without my experience there I most likely wouldn't be the skeptic I am today. That, and whenever I mentioned I was catholic they said really!?!?! as if i just said i was muslim, when I asked why? what's the difference? nobody could answer me. Same thing when I went to CCD and asked why the protestants are wrong, the main reason was because the catholic church was the first church, started by Jesus.
Anyway, I became a skeptic shortly after i took a biology class my sophomore year of public high school, learned about evolution and later geology. The sweater kept unraveling and began questioning my way to free thought. I honestly still believe in an afterlife, only because I had many vivid OBE's when i was younger, still have some occasionally today. Of course, I have no scientific evidence of this, therefore I don't fully believe it, I only fully believe what can be proven, it's merely a possibility.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my life story! lol
