Hello non-theists! I was raised Catholic and attended Catholic school until just before highschool. Ironically, it was the Bible studies that got me interested in storytelling and history. I guess the combination of critical reading and historical perspective was too much for my parents' attempted indoctrination.
I love science fiction, fantasy, and religious studies (in essence I love fantastical stories).
Though I have a problem with any faith that promotes ignorance, my biggest complaints about religion are against the Abrahamic cults particularly the concept of the rapture/armageddon as a highly destructive belief. Don't get me wrong, I'm no scholar. I was in the Army for seven years and I do well-paying dirty jobs (construction, janitorial, you name it).
I'm really excited to finally have access to an online community that shares my foundation of belief in science and mankind.

Hello Fred! Here here for scientific method!
I adore Greek/Roman Mythology! Been reading them since middle school. Great facinating stuff! I love that all of the gods are so incredibly human and flawed- they get mad, they make mistakes. It's all so good.
I've heard that the old Grimm Fairytails are pretty brutal but I still haven't read any. I shall look into it, sounds interesting.
Hey, I'm Dave, I went to Catholic schools, and my biggest complaint about religion is The Sick and Twisted Fantasy of Global Genocide too.

Welcome to A/N Dave!
