In the fall of 2009 I googled for information on Gobekli Tepe. It happens to be one of the oldest monuments/structures of civilization ever found, and news of it really shook the foundations of anthropology. One of the top listings was a great blog about what the Gobekli Tepe site meant in terms of the history of civilization and religion. In the comments section the ideas were flying back and forth and I wanted in to the discussion so I created an account on the site. That site was this site, ThinkAthiest.com! Now, a year and a half later, I'm a very active member.
So, how did YOU come to find ThinkAtheist?
You sound exactly like Paul Ryan when he said the intellectuals would never support his views. LOL.
I was surrounded by Catholics and and decided to follow a bunch of Atheists on Twitter. The two that were instrumental for me becoming a member was TA itself and Cara Coleen. I always enjoyed their tweets and figured I might find more of that stimulation here.
I like Heather Spoonheim's work on TA as well. A fan really as I am a handful of people that I've met here. Heather If I ever end up in Canada lets get a beer. ;)
