What attracted you to Skepticism?

I've been a humanist, hoping to find kindred minds, since ~ 1955, when I researched Einstein's purported religious views. Seeing that varied religious beliefs are rooted in varied backgrounds, I'm accustomed to indiscriminately accepting friends of all creeds, but recently I have been feeling a need for more "rationality-supportive" contacts. More often lately, I have been misunderstood and mistreated, especially by people who communicate not solely to convey facts, (as I do) but to manipulate/coerce -even prey upon others. I think I need to "band together" with more thoughtful people; and I suspect that, as I grow older, my very life may depend on my joining an intentional community or circle in which everyone shares my interest in creating a society, which would respond to man's nearly universal longing for a divine Father's/Mother's blessings by providing for all what He/She would: daily bread, loving forgiveness & deliverance from such evils as ignorance, apathy and entropy.
