Middle-aged, gay, vegan, southern, existentially obsessed fella here -- in the process of leaving behind 20+ years of quasi-spiritual agnosticism. I abandoned Christian mythology long ago, but losing the underlying faith in a purposefully designed reality has been more of a difficult transition than I imagined. I guess I'm here to commiserate to some extent. In many ways I think my life and my worldview would be in a much better place if I had been raised without religion. Ah well, it could have been much (much) worse.
Glad to be here and look forward to soaking in the goings-on and contributing where I can.
