Hello, I'm William aka Bix,
I'm not sure how I found this site, perhaps I found it while reading one of my favorite blogs, PZ Meyer's Pharyngula (@ http://freethoughtblogs.com/pharyngula
). No matter, the point is I did find it, and gladly. Being a recent amputee and a longtime nonbeliever in nonsensical mumbo-jumbo, I was initially attracted by the name of the site.
I look forward to a free exchange of ideas, thoughts and opinions, as well as (I hope) some camaraderie.
I was baptized Episcopalian at the tender age of 11 days, and grew up attending church regularly. I began to question the existence of an all-knowing God around the age of 13 or 14. It just never felt real to me, even then. As I got older, and a little less ignorant, the lunacy of a creator became a glaring realization. Add to that the utter hypocrisy of the believers in the Judeo-Christian Bible, and the whole thing became a laughable and sad pile of rubbish.
The realization of what an horrendous injury this belief system has caused, and still causes, to our collective humanity bewilders me no end. I cannot understand how so many are still so blind to this. Gullibility on so massive a scale astonishes me, and causes me to question the point of our very existence, and our future relevance (if any) in this Universe.Edited to get rid of annoying Courier font GB Mod.
