"Whether it's Christian evangelicals or Iranian clerics, I'm not afraid to call "stupid" where I see it. I think people would just happily trade in their brains for their precious sky daddies."

The earth quakes, reasoning goes out the window...

Here in Puerto Rico, there was an earthquake today at 1:30 am. It was a 5.7 on the Richter scale with the epicenter located to the north west of the island close to Añasco. I felt it all the way to my house on the opposite side of the island. My PC monitor started shaking and I thought it was my mind playing tricks but it kept moving for a while so of course it was something entirely different. Typically and like anywhere else, the unreasonable and magical arguments started pouring out..."god…See More

" El sueño de la razón produce monstruos"

The most recognized print of the "Caprichos" series from artist Francisco Goya and one of my favorites. The text translates as "The sleep (or slumber) of reason brings forth monsters"

Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Atheist
About Me:
Currently getting my masters in Architecture. I'm a Visual arts graduate. I am kind of a computer geek (hardware, mods, etc) and a PC gamer as well. Love to read, specially scientific topics. Trying to learn the electric guitar in spare time, not as easy as i thought.
Age
25-30
Why are you here?
To meet other atheists and hopefully (maybe a bit pretentious) spread the message and help others take off the religious blindfold.
The religion you left
Catholic
Why you left your religion.
I've had doubts from an early age, and questioned various church practices (simple stuff like the need for confession) and my family was catholic mainly because of tradition more than conviction. But you have to understand that coming from an indoctrinated and generally conformist country like Puerto Rico these subjects are still taboo... especially to question authority, be it political, religous or any other... So it's not until a few years back that I've openly shown my atheistic posture.
My father was a big factor...he didn't believe in a cosmic designer either so his insight was very helpful in my intellectual growth. He lent me a lot of good books. Later on, my education and my search led me to the loss of the "fear" that was instilled in me from childhood. And when you finally lose that fear there's no turning back.
Think Atheist Travel Network Couch Availability - Are you able to host anyone now?
