I "stumbled upon" this site. I visit a lot of sites like this.
I became an atheist in college. I had no choice. I was studying evolution and my fundamentalist belief system crumbled in the space of an afternoon. Knowing what I now know, I cannot choose to believe in a god anymore than I can choose to believe in the tooth fairy.
You all are an interesting bunch.
welcome to the community Ron! hope we see you around often. :)
if you're going to be around later tonight check out TA's podcast featuring a chat with atheist philosopher of religion Dr. Matt McCormick.
