Since I was very young, I've always been inclined to question. Mind you, I did used to believe in God and Jesus, in a vague, cultural-Christian way (my parents never really went to church, except on the occasional Christmas or Easter). My mind started to open more and more when I was at uni, during which time I transitioned through calling myself an agnostic to an eventual embrace of the atheist label in my mid-20s. Thank you, Horsemen.
I like to chat, argue, and have a laugh while talking about religion, science, philosophy, and politics. I've just finished reading Boghossian's 'Manual for Creating Atheists' and want to get back into this street epistemology thing.
I think I found it on the internet somehow? Can't remember.
Atheist and antitheist. Also a skeptic and a feminist. Like to argue, like to laugh. Doing a PhD in social psychology at UQ.
Given the way atheism and rational thought are suppressed, even in so-called secular democracies, it's important for us to support one another and share our ideas about being more assertive of our beliefs in our daily lives. Not to mention that you'll get to meet some genuinely fun and interesting people who'll never roll their eyes at what you have to say. That's always nice.
