What is your stance on religion?

I was raised attending a liberal & affluent Lutheran church & even confirmed, but by late Junior High School to early high school I had read enough of existentialist philosophy & history to become a fairly anti-theistic atheist & freethinker. I majored in philosophy as an undergraduate at Hamilton College (with a history minor) – & I went on to earn a Master of Arts in Teaching history degree from Bennington College (all of which only made me more atheistic, naturally). Anyway, I'm always on the lookout for erudite discussion & to meet, socialize, and learn with rational and liberated people.

How did you hear about our group?
