Hi everyone. I'm a college student from Pennsylvania and have finally joined ATS after many years of lurking. Growing up I always had a fascination
with the paranormal, especially UFOs. This interest in the magical parts of life led me to many passions including astronomy, lucid dreaming, and
I was raised in a Christian family and tended to believe in things pretty easily. At age 18, after having gotten away from religion during my high
school years, I realized that thinking logically and being a skeptic and an atheist were the mindsets that best suited me. Having lived both ways, I
can sympathize with multiple sides in debates and I hope that I can bring that out in my discussions on this site.
My name is a reference to the "shattered visage" in Percy Bysshe Shelley's sonnet "Ozymandias" and serves as a reminder that even the mighty have
been reduced to rubble.
I'm happy to finally be part of the ATS family and I look forward to much learning and sharing.
