Tell us a little about yourself, what brings you to us?

I grew up in the Pentecostal church and about 4 years ago, I started to break away from organized religion all together. What brings me to this group is my desire to have conversations with people that understand the implications of religion in our world and that don't think that just because I do not believe in supernatural beings, I eat babies or have no moral compass. The minute you tell someone you are a non believer, they immediately assume you are immoral or something is wrong with you.

Do you believe in any supernatural deity?

No, I do not believe in any supernatural deity.

Is your world view compatible with the LONG definition of a Secular Humanist contained in the "ABOUT section, the one following the question "What is Secular Humanism"?

Absolutely. I mostly identify with Secular Humanism because it takes a realistic and science based approach when dealing with any given matter. I also like the fact that it is broader then say atheism or agnosticism. It has a very specific world view and principals that one can follow and adhere to. It's not just simply the lack of belief in a supernatural being. I subscribe and try to live by the Humanism principles and as a public school teacher, the separation of church and state is especially one that I hold dear.

Where do you live?

I live in Miami - close to the Doral area.

Unless you answer all of these questions your application will be declined. We invite each other into our homes so your answers are very important. How did you hear about us?

I am already a member of the book club that is led by Tara. I didn't realize there was this group as well so when I ran across it, I decided to join. I look forward to meeting you all.

Introduction

Hi, I am interested in meeting like minded individuals in a world where everyone seems to have their heads in the clouds rather than their feet on the ground.

What Elena is saying about this Meetup Group

Awesome, awesome, awesome! Great conversation with an amazing group of people... It's what I always look forward to and I have yet to be disappointed! Hope to see you all very soon:-)
