Fresh Blood

Hi all,

Dunno how to start this, damn it'd be an easier if there was a form to fill out. I am Inferno. Trying out that nickname for the first time, most of the few friends I have called me Dante for a long time. Get it? Dante's Inferno!


...I'll go sit in a corner now.




Saw "The God Delusion" on the shelf at Borders in 2006 and finally had a sense of belonging in the world (didn't read or actively learn about the existence of atheism till over a year later but the fact that there were atheists and that they had a name and a community was a huge boost in and of itself)

(Retrospectively) Been an atheist, definition dependent of course, as far as I can remember

Been culturally religious and attempted some semblance of observance for a long time in respect to family and tradition

Currently a senior pursuing a Biology Major to do medicine, although I'm having doubts about the latter.

Almost completed a religion minor, but my final required course conflicts with my Major courses and I can only complete one by May 2010 so Major won out.


Any other questions, feel free to ask!

Welcome! I'm a lifelong

Welcome! I'm a lifelong atheist too. Fortunately (or unfortunately, considering the trouble it caused me), I recognized my atheism at a very young age. Around 8, as I recall. The questions I had back then *still* can't be answered by theists. Just goes to show how powerful indoctrination, deception, and brain-washing are, if people can be duped by something an 8 year-old can see through.

Hi Inferno


Hi Inferno - great choice of name, BTW.

If you like Dawkins, try The Ancestor's Tale. It's a lovely succinct piece of work based on the science side of things.

Your theist tends to pull at the little threads hanging off the God Delusion - but Ancestor's Tale is really nice work.

Welcome!A biology major.


A biology major. Cool.

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare

We got the joke about your name. But lets be clear about one thing. On this board, I AM THE KING OF CORNBALL!

So this waitress goes into the kitchen and asks for poached eggs. The cook responds, "I don't deal in stolen property".

If it is a "house salad" how come they serve it in a restaurant?

A Jew, Chinese, and Black

A Jew, Chinese, and Black walk into a bar.

The bartender looks at them and says, "Get the fuck out."

*crickets chirping*

The bar was in Alabama.

Everything makes more sense now that I've stopped believing.
