About Me:
I'm a 21 year old male. Ive had a thirst for knowledge ever since I was a kid. I'm not in school presently but plan to attend UNM for a degree in mathematics sometime in the near future. Right now I am working at the University of New Mexico Hospital as a certified nursing assistant. I have many hobbies...main ones being video games, music and spinning poi. I have a passion for all things scientific, esp. particle physics. As well I also enjoy thinking about philosophy and discussing it.

I (obviously) do not believe in a deity of any kind but I do believe that there is a spirit but not in a traditional sence. I believe that there is something that connects use all in one way or another...like a underflowing current of interdimensional energy that works as a sort of network of collective knowledge. I view myself as a existential atheist. Though I'm not sure if I always fit that description.

The religion you left
Catholic
Why you left your religion.
As a child I was brought up in the catholic church and had many questions. One of which was why was there was not a recognizable presence of a deity, if it had a major role in creation and post creation. I use to attend a bible study at the time and since the instructor of the class had studied the bible at the Vatican in Rome I figured he could shine some light on this problem. When I had approached him with my quandry he told me that the world was simply a toy god had forgotten about and had put it under his bed. I took this as insulting because he had simply dismissed my question and gave me a bullshit answer, mainly due to the fact that I was young. More so though it made me realize that every important question I asked the more bullshit I received. I left the catholic church and started studying a myriad of different philosophies and religions, in order to find my "place" so to speak. I found myself in the same place over and over. I attribute this series of experiences to my disillusionment. Once I had recognized myself as an atheist everything, in a way, seemed to gel and almost solidify. The realization of the nonexistance of a deity gave peace to my mind.
