This introduction is somewhat overdue so here goes...
I am 36, male, single. I live on Madeira Island, a (very religious) Portuguese Archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean.
My primary interests are (in no particular order): historical fiction, general non fiction, documentaries, martial arts.
On my profile:
I use the nickname "gematriot" because any meaning which we can derive from the must result from a reflection upon that which is unapparent; but inquirey must begin with what is apparent.
On the "stop following me": It is a comment on the fact that people are categorically human. Creationists need to accept this; "Uber Darwinists" need to remember that it is less important where we came from, as compared to where we are and where we are going.
What I want:
Intelligent conversation, a "little bit of that human touch" and the chance to better the world by making people smile.
Hi all! And thanks to Heather for starting this group. I'm originally from south Florida (hey, two UCF grads here... what are the chances?) and now live in northeast Atlanta (just a few miles OTP). I'm 42, never married, no kids, two horribly spoiled kittens, family spread out from West Palm Beach to Seattle. I tend to be drawn to interests that have an artistic and a technical component, such as photography and car restoration. I'm also a self-professed geek and would rather spend time on the computer or advancing a personal project than watching TV. Mostly, I'm looking to meet like-minded people in a part of the country not exactly known as the free-thinking capital of the world. What that I could enjoy a warm beverage with someone without wondering how she was going to react to my beliefs.
I'm thrilled to see so many fellow Atlantans on here!
I'm 29 single mother of one child, who will be two in February. I'm currently a Sociology major at the University of West Georgia. Eventually I WILL finish this degree...
The divorce papers just came three days ago and I am absolutely tickled pink about it. The word "freedom" doesn't even begin to cover how I feel. I am actually seeing someone at the moment, but it's not serious and doesn't appear to be going in that direction. I'm having a good time, but I'd much prefer something a bit more permanent. And before you start smelling "rebound" I'd just like to point out that while the papers just came, I've been living apart from the ex for a year now...we were married only in name for all that time.
My name is Adam Johnson, I grew up in Sanford NC and after high school went to ECU and studied psychology and english. I worked as a freelance herpetologist for 4 years (2003-2007). In March 2008 I moved to California and have coached soccer for the last year. I am moving to SC on February 25, 2009 so I can be closer to my family. I plan on going back to school and finishing english and getting a degree in zoology. I want to teach high school english while working on my own discoveries about the earth and life.
I grew up in a independent baptist church and constantly got in trouble for asking questions about things I didn't understand. I am very passionate about learning new things, specifically science.
I have played in bands since I was 13. I was in the band Tendrils for 5 years and recorded a couple of albums and toured. Fun times. Once I get back to the east coast my best friend and I are starting another band.
It would be nice to get to know more atheists in the south so I my company will have something in common with me.
