Lifelong atheist here, glad to meet you all. I come from Dawkin's website to meet others like me, and not like me.
Let's see, I've been in college for 20 years plus, haven't got the Doctoral degree yet, haven't finished a lot of things, always have a ton of projects underway, but I've done a lot too. Multiple degrees, two languages so far, three kids, lots of cars, and looking for the perfect boat.
Howdy, I'm Scott. I live in Snellville, GA (not far from you, Heather!) I am 42 years old, and teach theater at Emory University. I have two dogs. I've been married twice, and have one 12 year old son (lives most of the year with his mom). I am an anti-theist (I espouse the removal of all religions from the planet) and have vacillated between being mildly religious in my earlier life to my now hardcore self.
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.
You need a smile in that photo! What type of martial arts? Did you see the blond single woman who also likes martial arts? I tooa bit of TaiKwon Do, but wanted tyo take WinChun/ Jeet Kun Do.
Not into martail arts now, though.
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.
