..and thanks for a wonderful site!
I registered a while ago but never really got around to posting. So, introducing myself counts as a start
A brief description of me: 21-year old Russian-American philosophy and art history student with aspirations for a JD, a New Yorker living in Atlanta. I am a pragmatic atheist, and, sadly, as my views become more refined and consistent, it becomes harder and harder to explain them to people. I've gotten used to academic environment, where all arguments, no matter how bizarre, are considered and respected. Thats why I am often dumbfolded when talking to common religious people.. Hopefully, these forums will have some advice on how to deal with people who use but know nothing about circular arguments, criteria for evidence, etc... and Im just looking forward to hear from intelligent people.
Sooo I praise google for bringing me here and wish you all a good day!
