It seems to me, that new members rarely post a introduction thread anymore. As such I am making this thread as a way that new members can say hi, and get to know a couple of people on the forums.

So to all the new members:

First of all, hello! :wave:

Second, why don't you tell us a little bit about yourself?
“People generally quarrel because they cannot argue.�
- G.K. Chesterton

“A detective story generally describes six living men discussing how it is that a man is dead. A modern philosophic story generally describes six dead men discussing how any man can possibly be alive.�
- G.K. Chesterton

Welcome to the forum!

There are many versions of god concepts out there. Which one is it that you happen
to believe in?
You can give a man a fish and he will be fed for a day, or you can teach a man to pray for fish and he will starve to death.

My name is classified because my mom still doesn't know I'm an anti-theist and I don't want her to find out because it would kill her. She's 88 and fragile mentally.
I used to be a mormon but left after about 20 years. Then I went through an agnostic phase and now I'm an outright anti-theist. ( Against gods, any gods ).
It's my goal to sack the city of god and kill him. Looking forward to debating although I don't know any multi-sylable words and never made it past a BS degree and don't even know how to spell philosophy. I'm willing to listen but when the conversation turns into a fantasy I lose patience. I have anger management issues because of the frustration of trying to reach believers with logic and evidence. My personal belief is that the Bible was irrellavent 2K years ago.

Hi,
I am a born 100%atheist. In fact, I was on this forum several years ago as 100%atheist ... but discontinued due to my ... I wouldn't go into details.

I have a difficult political view, called realism. I think US has a chance to get better because Trump is the president. I am anti-illegal immigration, anti-gun, and pro-abortion, which makes me, I guess, a weirdo on double.

I do NOT hate Christians, Muslims, Hindus, etc., but I believe people would be better off without spending SO much resources and time on religion.

Looking forward to your thoughts once again.

Good Day all, Im new here from the Philippines. Wanted to Know if anybody has already heard of my religion. If so, I would like to share my experiences in this religion. If none yet, I am here to introduce to you guys my religion. My religious sect is PMCC 4th Watch. PMCC Stands for Pentecostal Missionary Church of Christ 4th Watch. Many trolls and bashers had been on the internet trying to post wrong notions about our religion so they need to know it from the people who are from the religion. I hope you explore with me. God bless

Welcome aboard! I don't know the exact idiosyncrasies of your sect, but I get the feeling I can at least understand the gist of it if it's explained, having been a member of the Nazarene church in my youth.

Hi Neatras, do I post a reply here about my religion? or does it go out of the topic when I post it here?

Hello

Hello,

I used to be in the old MSN group Christian Debate. Was wondering if there is anyone here from that old group.

I'm curious about deepening my understanding by reading mostly. I don't really have the energy or desire to "debate" anything. However, there are a few hot buttons and things I get passionate about, things I like to "get off my chest". I was "saved" in 1990. I spent many years "debating" and studying Christianity. My path has pretty much been a series of twists and turns, just like life in general is for most people. I've always been one who desires experiences, first and foremost. In the early days of being "saved", my experience with Jesus was very powerful, important and positive. I wouldn't call myself an ex-Christian. I'm more of an emotionally and spiritually evolved person. I wouldn't equate those terms with elitism and arrogance either. I love discussing religions, cosmology, philosophy, psychology, relationships. Hoping to engage with interesting individuals. Looking forward to participating!
