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?
Somebody who I met at another atheist website told me about this one. I asked him if they allowed theists and when he told me yes, I told him I was not interested in a bunch of pointless aruging. I can't remember now what finally made me decide to give it a try, but it was probably just so I could see his posts.
Once I started reading here, I liked it much more than my other regular forum I was on. It seemed to be much more active and the subjects were more interesting. I've not found anything comparable since.
TA was recommended by my younger daughter...she's a member - after I revealed I was struggling with faith. A close friend told me she couldn't do without her catholic faith - admitting indoctrination by her parents. I couldn't do without TA and its sanity.
Digressing here - thank you Heather S for answering a previous post and your understanding. It made me feel I was a member here....
