Well, I'm not exactly new. I've been lurking the forums for a good six, or maybe seven years now.
Always fascinated by every topic and theme that have cropped up along the years, yet I've always taken these wise words to heart "If you've got
nothing interesting to say, say nothing at all."
Lately though, I feel like maybe I'm a bit wiser and got something to say after all.
So, I'm from sunny/beautiful/rainy/dangerous/weird Mexico. A place with rampant UFO activity, and folk tales galore. People worship Christ, the
Virgin Mary, Buddah and lately, La Santa Muerte (St. Death). Sometimes all at once.
I'm an atheist, from a big catholic family. My mom's a psychoanalyst and recent buddhist, and my dad is in international security, and a closet
atheist. Interesting family all in all, I guess.
I work in the energy sector, as a…facilitator, or analyst I suppose. People in summits often mistake me for an engineer. I just laugh, and tell them
that a Social Sciences major is within their ranks.
My job consists of assessing risk, opportunity and creative problem solving. I’m getting married soon, with a devout Christian girl, whom I love
with all my heart and admire beyond words. We do not look eye to eye in spiritual matters, in fact we get on each other’s nerves sometimes for it;
yet we have been together a long time, and have learned to love each other and look beyond matters of faith.
I’ve seen things, in my stupid youth I dabbled in chaos magic and other really, really dumb stuff. I don’t regret it, but I wish I would’ve
acted differently. Funnily enough, those paranormal experiences only reinforced my nascent atheism views. I think I saw a UFO about three months ago,
I’m not sure. I wish I saw one and be completely impressed by it.
Anyway, I like to engage in intelligent discussion, and have no patience with blind fanatics of any spectrum (atheists, Christians, political right,
political left, envirementalist, industrialist, etc).
It’s my honor to finally introduce myself to the ATS community.
I’ll see you around,
