Hello, My name is Sean and I am new to atheist nexus, but not to atheism. Just thought I'd post a little hello and about me kinda thing. I was raised christian and even went to a christian university, which ended up aiding in my becoming atheist believe it or not. Being raised christian your just taught it and not to question it so you just think it's right, but it was at the christian university that I actually started studying the bible and religion and started to see how bogus it actually was. So thank you Greek class (learning the bible in greek and learning about all the interpretation and bullshit that went into putting the bible together, if a book on any other subject were put together the way the bible was no one would take it seriously) and thank you Psychology as taught by christians...What a joke. Anyway, enough about my religious background and a bit more about me. I used to do improv, stand-up, and sketch comedy, then I had a kid so I kinda gave that up,  and worked a bunch of different jobs for a while. Then decided I wanted to at least be doing something I liked so I went to art school and now I'm doing the artist thing, well trying to (still have to bartend for now).

Greets and salutes, Sean!  We're glad you joined us!

Thanks Loren.

Welcome Sean. I agree. Knowledgeable study of the bible will generally turn people away from it.

Yes, but what surprises me is how many people take those same classes, learn what I learned, and not see a problem with the bible.

Yes, isn't that a head scratcher?

Indeed ... a lot depends on where your attention is, and what your biases going in are.  Those who are convinced beyond any question probably will blow contradictions and other problems off, while those who are genuinely skeptical ... well, HIDY, there!

Nice to meet you Sean!

Welcome. Some of your background sounds a lot like mine. Deep study of the bible is what eventually turned me away, but the theists don't understand that. They keep wanting to cite the bible as proof of something. Sorry. That don't work.

Anyway, welcome Sean.

Good evening Sean and welcome. You will find many great people and a lot of interesting discussion here.

Hi Sean....  I also  want to welcome you  to A/N..We can  always  use  another  person's  input....I always  said that once  a person  educates  his or herself it is only a matter of time  before  they will question their  religion....So congratulations  on  becoming  a freethinker....I look forward to  any  responses  or blogs  that you will write....

Welcome Sean glad you found us.

I'm new here as well , Welcome aboard. I dig it.
