Hello from southern USA...

Hello, I'm Dean, I'm a 28 year old male from Oak Ridge Tn., currently residing in Asheville NC, I'm real interested in philosophy and in learning new things and about people's various views. I hope to get to know everyone well and learn some new things. Thank you for your time.

          Always nice to see a new face.  We have several phillosophy lovers here,   I' m just not one of them  --  too much of an engineer  --  , so you should fit right in.

Hello! I hope you'll like it

Hello! I hope you'll like it here. I work hard to have as various view as possible Smiling Although you do better if you first get known with home team - the rational atheists, science fans, and so on. These guys and girls are a treasure for us seekers, there is no topic too intellectual or philosophic for them.
Care to provide a few more details? Married, unmarried, natural born atheist or deconverted, or some interesting stories? But it's OK if you save that for later posts, or whatever. I mean, we're curious at people too. I don't want all of them to merge into a "some english-writing guy" Smiling

hey, buddy!  i'm a born and

hey, buddy!  i'm a born and raised eastern kentuckian myself, from a small town on i-64 between lexington and ashland.  i've been living in slovakia for about 5 years now.

i'm not familiar with oak ridge.  my mother now lives in shelbyville, so i'm familiar with the whole shelbyville-murfreesboro-franklin-nashville area.  i've also been to gatlinburg a few times, as well as bristol.

"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."
