    I just discovered this board and find it worthy of my attention...lol! I'm a pragmatic centrist. I'm an atheist because I find no reason to be otherwise, although I don't have any reason to care about anyone's spiritual beliefs as long as it doesn't infringe upon my lack of one. I like people, in general, but I do not like intolerant or willfully ignorant people. I'm a calm, cool and rational person, for the most part. I enjoy hockey, music, political discussion (duh), reading science fiction and watching excellent films. I'm a very kind and thoughtful person, in general. I like you until you don't like me. There ya go!

    There are more than a couple of them here.

    But welcome anyway. I enjoy hockey as well. In addition, I am extremely intelligent, I am virile and I wash my own socks.

    Welcome. And you can kiss your calm cool rational ass goodbye. That is if you choose to stay. :D

    Whoa! My 2,500th post. And I'm only 1 away from 60 reps? ;)

    Hey, welcome!

    I enjoy a good atheist, and I hope you stay around. It seems that, as of late, most center-left people have sort of 'given up' compared to the heady days of the early 2000s; so I'll warn you... Only keep posting here if you like a good challenge from a few posters here (and sometimes, me included).

    Though I do like this hating of willfully ignorant people. I think, by that alone, we can along on that admirably.

    I enjoy debate and think that challenging your opinion is a healthy exercise. Good for the brain...and all that.

    Do you enjoy challenges to your own opinion? For example, if I said, I'm not an atheist cuz I find no reason to be one, could you offer a reason?

    Just an example.

    Welcome. Have fun.
