I was raised in a Catholic household but from an early age I have struggled with religion and the existence of God. Science has always played an important role in my life and over the past few years I have had time to critically examine religion from a purely rational viewpoint. I have come to the conclusion that at best if a God exists it is the God of Einstein or Spinoza. However I still struggle emotionally and have become very interested in the field of neuroscience and the reasons and theory’s of why our brains evolved with the ability to create a God to explain the mysteries of the world. I can understand how the concept of God helped to resolve the questions that early man posed to himself, but I can't understand why our minds (including mine) still wrestle with this question when we have rational explanations, back by observation and experimentation that eliminates the need for the supernatural.
I have a hard time defining what I am right now. I am a rationalist and at best could be considered a Deist.
Hi my name is Wayne and I'm searching for a group of individuals that share a similar world view as mine. I'm very open-minded and I'm eager to listen to other "rational" explanations and theory’s regarding life and the cosmos.
