I am a third year undergraduate at the University of Sydney, studying archaeology and urban geography. I am a born again atheist after a number of years as a believer (my late teen years). This semester at uni I've had to endure Re:Jesus Festival (which went for two weeks), Islamic Awareness Week and this week, thanks to the same people who put on Re:Jesus (the EU evangelical union), I get to enjoy Christ Week! What I wouldn't give for a Freethinkers Day, siiigh.
hey. yeah thats cool, i figured out who the add on facebook was, thanks =]
was looking on ur page and reading all the stuff in your PZ myers groups.. that whole communion wafer scandal is just plain weird!
i'm just trying to kill time before i have to go to work.. should probably be cleaning my room or something.. lol.
yeah i really get what ur saying. i find it interesting that u say that 'everyone is born an atheist' because at church they'd always say that u had to have "childlike" faith, although u don't realise somehow that means to lose your logic and reasoning..
the church i would go to was a pentecostal fundamentalist sorta place.. and i did have heaps of friends there . i havent really 'come out of the closet' myself. i'm still on the music team at the church my parents go to aswell.. but i sorta figure whats the point in objecting when it doesnt really matter, i'm not going to change anyones mind and its not doing any harm.
well anyways hope ur presentation goes well. facebook was always my procrastination. i'm enjoying a year off from study, starting uni next year.
