I'm a student of life, and I see the world in a very logical way. I know enough to know that there are still many things I don't know (life, itself, is a work-in-progress). However, I'm very firmly of a scientific mind and a logical thought process. I consider myself a liberal extremist; a New Atheist; and the only morality or code of ethics I abide are the tenants of Humanism. I'm open minded but only so far as the hypothetical is something even remotely possible or at least plausible.

To make friends and be apart of a community.

Why you left your religion.
I came to the realization that Christianity existed only to ensure it's continued existence, and not to bring people closer to God as I had been taught. This co-incided with my increasing understanding and knowledge in many areas of scientific study, which ultimately brought me to a crossroads between my faith and my intellect. Had I chosen my faith, I knew that I would only be lying to everyone, including myself; I knew I could never again be a believer in any kind of system that required that I exchange my empiricism for mindless obedience.
