Hey guys, I'm Tony, 19, Male, living over here in the wonderful state of Washington! (Though I miss Oregon sometimes cuz I just moved up here.)
Hi, Klokinator, welcome to WWGHA. Pacific Northwest... never been there, but I've heard a lot of good things about it from those who have.
I used to be a Jehovah's Witless when I was a kid and through a lengthy process finally abandoned my faith (Because it's retarded.)
Wow. And at such a young age, too. I've heard about what JWs go thru when they leave the faith, and it sounds pretty harrowing. Glad to see you appear to have made it out relatively unscathed.
The JW religion is the branch of Christianity that I'm most familiar with by far. When I was about your age, a JW knocked on my door, and I actually let him in, and we studied together for several months. Sometimes I wonder whether I'm the only such case. *chuckle*
and now I'm happily an apatheist, caring not the slightest what religion might have to do with my life in the following years.
Welcome to the real world. You're going to love it here. For my own part, I have tremendous difficulty wondering why anyone would be so involved with religion when the real world around is so much more fascinating. Ever heard of the mimic octopus? Someone else here at WWGHA mentioned it a while back. Check it out on YouTube sometime. It's freaky.
I got a gorgeous girlfriend, here's a picture of here and I.
Nice! Here's me and my girlfriend:
(Well, OK, I might be lying about that a little bit. Or a lot. But that is
me on the left there.)
I mostly joined this forum because it's busy, it's a lot of fun to debate religion (Especially when you're not on the faith side) and also it seems more atheist oriented which appeals to me. I hope we all have some great chats here
Of that, you may rest assured. This is a good time to join, because we've got a few theists active right now, and that always livens things up. Times we have no believers active, which is, unfortunately, more often than not, it can be somewhat more sedate.
PS: No spoiler tags??
As far as I know, no. No real need for them on a site like this, I wouldn't think. It's not like IMDb or anything.
