I joined this community a few weeks ago because I was searching for a place to share my thoughts. This is not possible on my work (they ridicul me for being, and outing myself as an atheist, even if most of them have similar thoughts), and with my friends I discuss mostly other stuff. Don't have many friends, more work-friends and forum-friends. And no, I do't mind. I'm perfectly happy with my life as it is. Nice and quiet. :)
Anyway, simple stats:
Male, 31 (32 december 15th), living in mostly secular Holland (Europe). Just an office klerk. I wasn't raised very religious, althoug I'm officially Roman-Catholic, but a die-hard atheis now (number seven on the "Dawkins-Scale"). Having been christened/baptised (don't know the exact translation), my second name is Maria. Yeah... Go figure... I would actually like to change my name to just my familyname and given name (Remko), but haven't looked into that much. I thought about doing a "reverse" ritual to undo the name, but that would actually acknowledge the original ritual... ;).
My hobbies include reading (both novels as well as a popular science, and comics), and I have many, many books. I also collect scalemodels of heavy equipment (heavy haulage, cranes, excavators etc.) as well as customise those. And I love movies, and TV. Science Fiction, thrillers, just about every genre, and my DVD collection is rather... Extensive.
Well, this is me in a nutshell. I've written a few blogposts, and more information aout me can be found there. I haven't contributed much to this community, mainly because I can't find the time for it.
