Hi from Canada...

Hi Everyone,

 

I am someone who has never believed in God. I am lucky to live in a part of the word where most people are not overtly religious, so growing up, it did not seem that religion was a big deal. In university, I studies history, specifically world religion and its impact on politics and governance. That is when I really began to understand how important religion is to control. Most of the people I talk to do not see religion to be a threat to their personal freedoms, but I feel that religion and the vehemence with which it is begin followed is terrifying. If anyone has been following the republican race in the US, you understand my concerns.

 

I am not sure exactly what I can do, but I feel that I need to act. I have begun to investigate various movements and groups that are anti religion in a constructive and organized way, which is how I found this site.

 

I look forward to chatting with you all.

 

K

Welcome!  I also despise the social conservatism of the religious right.  Rick Santorum represents this category nicely.  I hope he gets destroyed and Ron Paul takes the lead, followed by Obama winning.  I hope Ron Paul types are the future of the Republican Party -- at least they are socially liberal.

“A meritocratic society is one in which inequalities of wealth and social position solely reflect the unequal distribution of merit or skills amongst human beings, or are based upon factors beyond human control, for example luck or chance. Such a society is socially just because individuals are judged not by their gender, the colour of their skin or their religion, but according to their talents and willingness to work, or on what Martin Luther King called 'the content of their character'. By extension, social equality is unjust because it treats unequal individuals equally.” "Political Ideologies" by Andrew Heywood (2003)

Are you happy Brian Sapient?

Are you happy Brian Sapient? Look what you have done. You've brought another atheist to our ranks.

And to the OP, never mind me, I tell bad jokes and root for a really sucky NFL team.
