Tell us something fun about you.

I can teach you how to be a Pentecostal glossalaliac /-ist, that is, how to speak in tongues, in five minutes or less--as long as you're willing to admit that you're doing it! :-)

How Do You Define Your Disbelief Thinking? It can be where you are on the Dawkins scale, or a self-title like: humanist, atheist, rationalist, etc.

Skeptic in method. Agnostic in ultimate conclusion. Atheist in rejecting theistic claims. Rationalist-humanist as best designation. I like Dan Dennett's term "Bright," but haven't found it to be sufficiently well-known thus far.

What do you hope to get from this group?

Thought, stimulation, conversation, contacts, enjoyment.

How Informed on Humanism, Atheism, Rationalism, & Philosophy are You?

Philosophy minor and graduate level studies on history of philosophical thought and Christian origins and classical antiquity.

How Long Have You Been a Unbeliever?

For fifty five years when I reflect on my deepest understanding, but self-defined as with no faith whatever only for a couple of years.

Introduction

Followed a trajectory from Pentecostal extremist childhood, thru philosophical liberalism and enlightened Christianity, from which I watched the vestiges of faith & tradition keep disappearing in the light of day until there was nothing left of them.
