Hello everyone ...
I feel I should introduce myself a little, even if I am not sure if anyone cares to read this.
Some facts first. I am an internet addicted female speciwoman, approaching my mid-30s (already! time flies!). I live in Germany, work in the IT dept of a larce telco company, have been together with my partner for a decade now and we have the most cutest kid son who just turned 1 in July.
Religion, and later Atheism, has always been as issue in my life. I had not been christened or anything, but my family was what I call "part time believers". I went to a catholic elementary school and there I learned to be an Agnostic. As a teenie I had my appendix taken out and became an Atheist.
Being an Atheist is getting a more and more important thing in my life. As I grow older I grow less tolerant towards believers, because I find it harder and harder to see the point and ignore the consequencies that it has on this earth. I don't have to tell you about all the big crimes in the name of a random God and of all the little crimes that will not make it into the news. Also, being a parent raises new questions. How can I make him strong to not become a lemming that just does what he is told cause it is the easier way?
I am glad to have found a place where I find some people that have the same views. In real life I sometimes feel like an alien. Most people I know are the common "part time believers". Some are rather Atheist but on a "I don't give a fuck" level. I am beyond discussing this issue with believers, it is a waste of time.
Well, I am out of here for now.
