Just wanted to say a quick hello and introduce myself. I've been lurking around the forum for about a month or two and finally decided to register and join the conversation. I've been an atheist/rational skeptic/advocate for intellectual honesty for about a year now. It took quite some time to get to this mindset; time spent reflecting on and parsing through various thoughts, and it's taken about 5 years for my faithlessness to take root and bear fruit. So I'm actively looking for differing opinions and ways of thinking to further my understanding and just basically keep learning. Not quite sure what else to say, so, thanks for reading! I welcome any questions or comments, and I'm sure I'll have a few of my own as I participate more. Glad to be here!
