    I was told about this place from a friend as we were debating something on a local newspaper website. Not a lot of folks like to debate in their daily life, so the internet is a great place for some invigorating debate.

    I am pretty much a moderate/independent guy politically. I lean a bit more right than I do left, but not much. I rarely view a topic as black and white so there is almost always some room for debate. Some topics are more interesting to me than others (naturally) but you folks sure do have a fast moving board here. Its difficult to keep up most of the time.

    I am an active volunteer with my local volunteer fire department, homeowners association and VFW when I'm not working.

    I can be summed up as a gun loving, extremely moderate, atheist. =)

    Welcome, although I don't believe in atheists. I hope that's not a problem.

    Hi T-mike. Real debate is sometimes as hard to come by at USMB as on any other board but it does happen now and then. If you have your bullet proof vest on and fresh batteries in your BS detector, you should be able to find a niche here. So welcome and settle in.

    And don't forget to go into your User Control Panel and turn your 'Sarcasm' setting to "ON".

    You're going to need it.

    Its understandable. We all have to struggle with our faith at some point in our lives. You'll come around eventually =)


    Thanks for the welcome everyone.
