Raised without major involvement with religion other than the general Christian attitudes pervasive in the surrounding culture, I was troubled from an early age by the logical inconsistencies of the Christian worldview and scriptures. With further study and maturity I began to wonder how anyone could be so convinced of something so flimsily founded and sought to experience for myself these feelings of divine support and inspiration claimed by the faithful. After earnestly and simultaneously attending numerous denominations for a few years without producing any such result, I decided that in addition to lacking the faith, I no longer even wanted it. My interest in secular activism was sparked during college when I was concurrently enrolled in my first courses of logic and geology, and there I came into contact with evolution denial for the first time.
I am an agnostic atheist. That is, I don't claim to know whether a god exists, but I don't believe that one does.
A recent and enthusiastic addition to the atheist/skeptic community, I have always been a skeptical thinker and science fan.
