Hello Miriam. Welcome to this rational haven of Internet atheism and of truth and peace----far from the superstitions and fictional god of the masses.
"Well-founded common sense helped by science leads to atheist wisdom."
We invite you to make good friends by joining the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with 500 discussion topics and 2900 members.
"I am a cynic who always sees the glass as half empty, and I question the motives of those who would convince me otherwise"
Me, too, and, even tho I don't travel the planet with an always dour expression, I frequently get in trouble from others for what I simply see as recognizing possible negatives in things/people/motives, etc., and not just the best/hoped-for outcome.
I would like to think that we're just more perceptive/realistic than many others.
