What factors influenced you to emerge as a non-believer in a believing society?

As I look back to my childhood I remember being comforted by empirical information and confused by belief in anything that wasn't supported by evidence. This really never changed over the years, but I was occasionally drawn in by believers I respected or liked as people. Recently, watching Richard Dawkins and others speak has been very influential is solidifying my thinking.

What do you hope to get out of this group?

Interaction with intelligent people who think similarly about life and the cosmos.

What do you feel you can offer the group?

I'm not sure, at this time.

Introduction

I've periodically tried to be a believer, mostly before age 40. But, I was always a skeptic. At this point I can find no merrit for me in supernatural belief.

What Bob H. is saying about this Meetup Group

Always a pleasure, "to get the word...of science"
