I am a journalist and atheist/humanist.

I grew up in a very Christian family, but was skeptical early in life. In my teens I had what I call an enlightenment when I could no longer believe in religion as a way of life. I do believe that being a positive addition to this world is important, and religion does not always accommodate this. Though I do not attack anyones religious beliefs directly, I have studied religions to great lengths and have not yet found anything divine, or evidence of a god other than an explanation of the natural beauty and intricacy of Earth.

I am joining this forum because I want to meet more people that think like me.
