I've been an atheist for about six years now, and come from a Mormon background. I say six years, but I was pretty skeptical, even as a child, so I don't think I transformed so much as just realized I didn't fit in there.
Most of our running water comes in the form of flash floods filling dry washes. We like to joke 'round here that we just don't have the heart to tell the tourists that fish don't fall out of the sky. So we just sell them bait.
As I'm trying to stay on with Seasonal Park Service gigs, I'd love to work in Florida at some point. Seems like the most beautiful oceanfronts the U.S. has to offer.
Hello all, I'm Shaun, I'm from the Great White North, I live in a town near of Calgary with the dullest name in the Western World (Olds), and I climbed off the agnostic fence and into atheism about three years ago.
Hi All, I'm Mark, male, 53 yrs old, born 1957. I enjoyed the conferences in Long Beach and Burbank and look forward to Montreal and meeting interesting atheists.
I traveled on the cheap after high school, settled down a bit at 28 and earned an associate of applied science in computer science. After more than two decades continuous employment (and still employed) I'm now in night school to roll the AAS into a bachelor degree.
I've tried several hobbies such as biking, hiking, piano, scuba, motorcycle and learned that I like some more than others. One hobby that I've continued with is juggling. It would be great to find someone who enjoyed passing clubs or at least interested in learning. Not a requirement, just would be nice.
