About Me:
I am happily married, no children. I have always been an atheist, but I used to believe that because religion is so important to so many, it is rude to question it. I now believe that because religion is such a malignant force, it is my duty to be open about the fact I am atheist, and do my best to spread secularism. I am always curious to hear the "origin stories" of my fellow non-believers. I am passionate about asking the question "why is believing something without evidence an acceptable thing?"
