About Me:
I am a student in pursuit of a BA in mechanical engineering and hopefully one day a Ph.D in physics. I look forward to joining in on some of these in depth discussions on life, death, redemption, legacy, and the every entertaining world of religiosity. I was born and raised on the east coast of the United states. I am a pisces, I love the music of Tool, I love sushi and enjoy long walks on the beach ;)

Why are you here?
I enjoy talking to atheists and to people in general who are willing to participate in conversations of a somewhat higher order than the status quo. The physical sciences are required in public school but subjects like philosophy and ethics have been left out of the curriculum. Its a shame because just as science is a description of the physical world around us, aesthetics and the collective axiom of belief systems and metaphysical interpretation describes humanity in relation to the veil of existence and consciousness in which we reside.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
I was raised in the church, and still hold a lot of ideologies that reflect the christian persuasion but the word christian means little or nothing to me. Religious texts are full of beautiful poetry and philosophical tenets for the human condition; but religious practice is more of a guideline for those who lack understanding and in some cases the capacity for abstract thought. I do however consider myself to be a deist of sorts. I try not to judge and I try not to be too much of a cynic. At a certain point it just becomes distasteful.

     "So for me all I have to do is look at the hostile indifferent nature of the universe to get an idea of what God might be like."

    Indifference to the needless suffering and plight of the very beings it (god) is supposedly responsible for creating is testament to the convoluted thinking of it's followers.
