a place for atheists to get away from religion and
religious debates and so on?<br><br>Hmmm...just looking
over the thread list it doesn't look too good. Oh
well...<br><br>Anyway, let me introduce myself. I consider myself an
agnostic, in that I don't believe knowledge of the
'complete' truth is possible. However, I also consider
myself a weak atheist in that I have seen no sign of any
kind of supreme beings and so don't have a belief in
any.<br><br>Oh, and my name is Kevin.
- I totally agree with you. I am not an athiest right now, but the
only reason I went to church and prayed and things like that was
because my parents told me it was right. Now I'm on my search for a
religion that fits me. But whenever I have kids I don't think that
religion should be incorporated to them unless they are exposed to as
many kinds as possible.
