I grew up in the evangelical christian church. I hate capitalizing anything, least of all religious monikers. Actually as a small kid, I hated church. Then I became one of those teens for jesus and loved the lord-y-lord. Sang heartily about the blood in the blood of the blood. Reveled in the torture of my savior and lordy. I taught at a kids camp, led singing and worship sessions, taught sunday school, read the bible cover to cover several times, bible bashed lots of people, picketed abortion clinics, then eventually got into technology and drama. That, combined with calvanism was my exit drug. Well and moving from Vancouver to Halifax, leaving the christian bubble to test and see if the faith could hold its own against the big world. Took about 8 years for me to finally call myself an atheist after all that. It was a long, slow, gradual "evolution" away, not a 1 day or 1 moment conversion. I had a friend who was a scientist, some engineer friends...lots of intellectual friends and now I collect rare books and antiques, love history and culture, and the preservation and perpetuation of knowledge to all.
Personality. I like to use complete, articulated words. I cant stand internet memes like "lol" and "u r really gr8." I do not have a blackberry or cellphone and live, happily married (Actually living in "sin" but that's our business...we're havin' a good time), in paradise: a 6 acre piece of forest in rural nova scotia. I'm on satellite internet, live in a beautiful hand crafted home surrounded by 17th and 18th century antiques as well as the latest techno stuff, love playing video games, am on the internet too much probably, and I write code in Actionscript for a living. Ran for politics once and am all done with that. I have a lot of opinions. I question everything. Love my life, and am trying to get the most out of it I can.
If you think I seem interesting...please friend me. I always am interested in having more atheist friends and I am looking for people to be influenced by and learn from.
