I was born in 1978 in the state of Maine where I was raised. I went to school for Mathematics and Game Theory. Ive been a professional poker player for the last 8 years, I strive to help people as best as I can, currently try and spend at least 15hrs a week doing volunteer work. Freethinker, who loves every bit of my coincidental existence!
Why are you here?
Honestly sometimes in this society, as an Atheist I'm left feeling like an outcast, and it would be nice to feel like I'm a part of a like minded community where my thinking, and chosen path through life isn't judged by anything but freethinking.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
Raised by a very strict baptist Mother, who dragged, me and my brothers to church every Sunday, till one morning my older Brother had the idea to I reset the main power breaker, so my Mothers alarm clock wouldn't go off and we would miss church, which we did miss, and we lied to my mother, and said the power had gone out. The world didn't end, our house wasn't struck by lightning, my brothers and I sat home and watched 'Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory' and I didn't feel the least bit guilty about it. Thats when I really began to question the idea of faith, though I was still had the held some of the fears church instilled into me. All those silly fears were washed away a couple years later following the death of my older brother, and having to sit through his funeral, and had to listen to a fairy tale of why god need to bring my older brother "Home". Now I'm my own god.
