Please tell us something about yourself and your interest in Humanism.

Well, I grew up Baptist, but couldn't really believe. When I was 19 or so, I tried really hard to believe, for about a year; I thought my non-belief meant there was something wrong with me. I gave it my best shot and failed, but I was at peace with my non-belief. It was only later that I realized it was wacky to think I ought to believe. When I got married, I didn't realize how fundamentalist my wife had become; she thinks the world is 6,000 years old and raised our kids accordingly. Doesn't seem to have stuck fortunately. Before that I'd ignored creationists and the Christian nation people; now I think they're kind of a menace.

How did you find us? Print materials, online, word-of-mouth, or...?

I just started learning about humanism and found HFSD in my searches.


Just another nonbeliever.
