About Me:
Hello, My name is James and like all of you have freed myself of religion. I have always been a fan of science and history. Throughout my schooling I always sought out science , history and art classes. My constant thirst for knowledge and understanding eventually lead to my Atheism. My road to Atheism was by logic, knowledge and common sense.

I am also a graphic designer by trade. I've always loved art and was lucky enough to make a career out of it. If you are interested, you can see some of my stuff here: http://jfs-design.deviantart.com/

Other than that, I'm a bit of a car nut, like rock music and can be a bit of a nerd as well. lol : ) I also have a great wife who is a Wiccan, but totally respects my beliefs (well, lack thereof). We both agree that it's great that neither of us are Christian.
Why are you here?
I'm here to promote Atheism, meet other Atheists and learn more as well. I like to think that I have a pretty good working knowledge of religions and religious debunking, but I know that there is always more to know.

Also, because I am tired of us being looked down on, and the Christians who think they just know it all. Yet, bring out physical scientific proof, and they still say that 'they know', and that everyone else is wrong. Closed minded bigotry is running rampant in this country and it must be brought to an end. The USA we live in is far from what was framed by the likes of Jefferson, Franklin, Adams, Paine, etc.

I'd be happy if more people were just like my parents. Catholics (as I used to be), but grew to accept who I am and what I believe. Not to say they like it, but they deal with it. Not trying to 'save me" (even though those who know religion should know I'm 'un-savable')...
The religion you left
Catholic
Why you left your religion.
Scientific and historical proof that contradicts religious claims. Also, proof that much of Christianity is borrowed, astrological or just plain made up.

Rain gauge Earth

Posted on June 21, 2013 at 8:36pm 3 Comments

http://brainhulklogicsmash.blogspot.com/2013/06/rain-gauge-earth.html

We live in a rain gauge... Figuratively of course. But are you still curious what I'm on about? Well, allow me to elaborate. Sometimes I hear believers claim that life on Earth is so miraculous that only a divine being could explain it. There are actually scientific explanations that explain life rather well. But I am mainly…

Sometimes I hear it said that I'm only an atheist because, "That's the easy thing to do." That people are non-believers because they are lazy. These people will claim that the faithful are the ones walking the hard road... That belief means that…

Thanks for the support! I'm really glad I found this sight. It's hard being the only Atheist around, and comments from people like you, supporting me and not degrading me for my beliefs, makes my decision to be an Atheist so much easier. Does that make sense? Hmmm, anyways, thanks once more for your comment =)

James, I'll get you the "sounds of science" song. I'll download the video with real player and convert it to just audio. I'll add it to my playlist and share it too you that way.

Thanks Jame! Been busy with life, the annoyance that it is. I'll close out voting this week and let you know. Thanks again for the awesome logos!
At 10:09pm on March 16, 2010, Reggie said…
Nothing in mind, really. Something that says "Skeptics of Think Atheist" or "Skeptics of T|A" would be cool. I can donate to the Billboard fund in your honor.

Oh, yeah, the Feature thing. Should have happened months ago, but the red tap held it up. Sorry. Damn bean counters.

Well. I was wanting to have a cool logo for the Skeptics of Think Atheist. I'd be willing to donate $25 to your favorite charity in your name. Receipts, even. That is my final offer. I await your counter offer. ;-)
