Hi, fellow athiests
I am new to the forum. I love this place already.
Quick info about me....
Born in Scotland, UK. 1968.
Now living in Louisiana, USA since 2000.
I have known from an early age that there could not possibly exist this GOD most people speak of. I have protested it my whole life. I pretty much just laugh any time anyone wants to drill me with belief or religion and tell them that there are lots of other books that tell stories and that I am happy for them but they are believing in something that is not real...LOL
I've found that they also do not like that and thus the FANATIC rares it'd ugly head.
If I had a buck for every person who told me "Oh yeah you'll find out one day...blah blah..."
I frequently browse through STUMBLE and have read a whole bunch of stuff that has solidified my thoughts and shown me that I am not alone here. Everyone, and I mean everyone I know believes in their deity....has been this way my whole life...alone in my knowledge like you guys. There is one guy I know who says he doesn't believe but I'm not sure how true that is because he's not like me at all.
I'm tired of the way theists look at me like I'm some sort of lower class idiot. While most of the time I could add their IQ's together and still not equal mine.
I'm excited that there is actually this forum for us too. I am a member of lots of forums online and now feel like I may have found a home for those times when I've heard enough bible thumping for one day.
Sadly my wife is a devout christian and also has a bad habit of going that same fanatical way in GOD discussions (theists just can't help themselves I've concluded). So we don't talk about the subject much, however I do have to butt in sometimes to let her know that I've seen or heard enough thump.
Besides our FAITHS everything else is hunky dory.
Well enough about all that eh...
I look forward to joining in some of the topics however I'm more of a reader at times and get a kick out of other peoples rantings.
