Just another Bible-Belt Atheist
So, I actually signed up a few years ago, but I just never really had the time for forum posting. Now that I'm unemployed, well, you know...
Having been raised Jewish in the south, I learned quick that I better be able to throw scripture back at the fundies who thought that I was personally responsible for the death of their saviour. I found religion interesting and did a lot of reading on the subject when I was young. This led me to the obvious and rational conclusion.... it's all bullshit.
Not to say I am not spiritual on some levels. I do think that we can acheive some inner peace through self-examination. I just don't believe that there is any enlightenment that can be attained by blind faith to a mythical god.
About 12 years ago my husband and I moved to the country in NC. On many levels I love it. I can grow a garden, it's peaceful, and there is almost no crime. BUT, there are very few people of like-mind here.
I'm looking forward to spending more time here on the forums. Sometimes I think the whole world has lost it's collective mind. It makes me feel good to know that i am not the only one.
