Tell us what brought you to the world of skepticism, agnosticism or atheism?

As a young child going through religious education, the concept of a supreme being didn't make sense. As I grew older, I explored a number of religions--none of which made sense. When I went to college and studied Gestalt, the need humans have for a pattern made the concept of needing to have a god made sense. But the idea of actually having one or more exist still made no sense whatsoever.

Tell us if you are and atheist, agnositc, or a believer in religion.

I am an atheist.


Hello-- My name is Dorrie Lloyd. I live Lake Forest, and I moved to CA from NYC approx. 28 years ago. I was one of the pioneers in the art of changing careers, which at times was harrowing, but usually produced spurts of knowledge and growth.

What Dorrie L. is saying about this Meetup Group

Hello everyone. By the next meeting, y'all will have a pic of me. But meantime, the meetup was one of the best social events I've been to in a long, long time. Absolutely great being around people who are so articulate, funny, and compassionate about a lot of things. Very unusual combinations in my life in the past few years. Thank you for a beyond lovely afternoon.
