I have been lurking here on and off over the past 4 years. I finally decided to join so that when I feel the desire to ask a question or post a
comment, I am now able to do so.
A little about me: I am a skeptic; though I love reading about any and everything. I am like a sponge when it comes to learning, which is probably why
my mind is so convoluted. I have a fairly open mind, but am not gullible. My sweetie tells me that I am over-analytical, which is probably true.
I (like many people in the United States) recently got laid off so I am back in school working towards a Psychology and Criminology degree. I see the
world in shades of gray as opposed to black and/or white, though my own personal biases sometimes blind me.
I believe in showing kindness to all, for you never know the kind of life that others have had.
I believe organized religion is destructive. Having grown up in a cult like (ever heard of independent fundamental baptists?) religion, I have
witnessed the evils of religion first hand. However, I would not say that I am an atheist; rather more of an agnostic, for I do not believe the notion
of "god(s)" can be proven either way.
I absolutely love this site and the intellecuals who are on it. It's intriguing to me that a site that started out for conspiracy theorists has
evolved into a "thinktank" of mutliple mindsets. Some of the most intellectual things that I have read have been on here, and I have found some
other great sites from links in people's threads.
That's probably enough for now. I don't foresee myself posting too often as what I have to say is usually already posted by a member who writes much
more eloquently than I do.
