I was brought up Roman Catholic until I became engaged to an Episcopalian and my fiance was required to attend indoctrination classes. The whole attempted brainwashing experience was a complete turnoff for me (and my fiance) and at that point I left the Church and became a (nominal) Episcopalian. The marriage failed after about four years and I was basically adrift for several years until I read a passage in a book that pointed out that there exists not one shred of credible evidence that would suggest the existence of a supreme being. This passage had a profound effect on me which prompted a search for others who had similar ideas. I ended up joining the local (the Boston area at the time) chapter of the AHA. I later became a member of the Skeptics Society and adapted a freethinking philosophy that lasts to this day.
I'm now retired from being an electrical engineer for 30 years followed by being a librarian for 12 years.
I think I'd be interested in activities that would allow me an opportunity to express myself such as engaging in a dialog or debate on freethinking subjects.
I've been a freethinker for several years and am a member of AHA and the Skeptics society. I enjoy discussing/debating a wide variety of freethinking subjects and look forward to continue doing so in the future.
My favorite group. I try to never miss a meeting.
