About Me:
Some people are hardwaire to religion, I suspect that I am not. Even though my parents sent me to church as a child, religion never made sense to me.
I prefer to describe myself as agnostic, because, even thogh I don't entertain even the most remote possibility of some all powerful supernatural intelligent being, I cannot and will not claim knowledge of the unknowable. In short, I seperate what I know from What I believe or disbelieve.
Age

Why are you here?
