Glad to be here
« on: June 29, 2017, 06:08:50 AM »
My name is Curt. I grew up in Kansas in the heart of the bible belt.  Lived on the east coast for the last 5 yrs (Maryland).  I do enjoy the much more secular environment on the coast then in the south or Midwest. Both my parents are religious.  But I can say I never bought into it myself.  Just don't understand how people can believe something that there is no credible evidence for.  I am 39 years old.  I love Science. That's all for now. Nice to be here.

Hi Curt, welcome to this collection of godless freaks. Be prepared for lots of pearls of wisdom and insight wrapped in sarcasm and wise-assery.

Please tell us more about your life and interests - you don't have to be curt, Curt.

Hello Curt

I think you'll fit in just fine :)

Greetings, Curt. We are not all freaks, despite Hermes opinion, some of us are only a bit weird. But most rationally weird of course.

I resisted that. How many times do you think he's heard that? I wonder if he rustles when he walks?

He probably only rustles in spring.

Welcome to the Forum my son, now please ask god to forgive thy trespasses, and say three Hail Mary's in repentance. 8)


What type of Christians is your family if you don't mind me axing?





I'm truly sorry, but I can't keep explaining this simple thing to you over and over again hoping that you'll finally understand something so simple and obvious.

We're not all godless either. Ok, now I'm confused...

Hello and welcome to HAF, Curt. Sounds like you made the right decision moving to Maryland! I hope that you enjoy your time reading and posting here.  :)
