I never introduced myself

I never introduced myself
Some of you already know me from the Mafia forum, which is why I came to this site. Looking around, the rest looks interesting too.

About me: I'm a Canadian uni student. I'm highly interested in sustainability as well as business and law and I'm pursuing all of these things for my education and career. Aside from playing mafia, my hobbies include running, playing music, writing, and any adventures that come my way. I was raised as an anti-theist, so I don't have a dramatic de-conversion story for you all (sorry to disappoint), but I consider myself highly fortunate not to have grown up under the delusion of a god. Hopefully I have something good to contribute here aside from trying to lynch people over in the Mafia thread. Smile

Most of my friends are agnostics or lazy theists, so I look forward to having a place to talk to other atheists. A question for you guys: I've noticed some theists come here. What happens to them? Do they ever de-convert or do they just disappear?

Welcome.


Most of them probably get raptured or some such nonsense!

Few stay and are ones we like to have around. There are also a few that stay like a thorn in our side. Annoying as hell but some of them bring good discussion to the table. Others, I'd personally like to kick in the pants, but I can't so I ignore them. The majority of theists come here to troll and try and convert atheists. When they get shot down or made fun of, they typically leave. They are also the ones who create shit post threads... they make a thread to shit on people here, then leave.

Hi! You seem cool. What kind of stuff do you write? I enjoy writing, too.

Also, some of our theists stay and remain theists. Some suck and some are cool. Some of the cool ones you learn to enjoy. And this is coming from me... the lady who doesn't really kick it with theists. They grow on you sometimes, though. Smile

Interesting. I would have thought that this kind of forum would be all atheists, but I could see religious people thinking it is a platform to convert us lost souls.

I can see that the ones that are annoying but bring good discussion to the table are probably valuable. I love hearing other people's viewpoints even if I think they are wrong, so long as they are defending their view rationally. Not something I've ever encountered with a religious person before, though, to be honest.

Pretty much anything: I've completed about 10 journals, I write newspaper articles (mostly opinions Tongue ), I actually like writing essays for school, and I pursue writing novels in the summer (I've finished almost 3 so far but I don't plan on publishing anything until I'm old). Writing's just one of those things I've always loved, no matter what format I'm doing it in. What about you?

Hi shadow Welcome from the UK. I don't play mafia but I can tell you the rest of the site is awesome because it's the people here who make the difference. Step out of the mafia room and have a wander around, I'm sure you'll agree with me. Would you like a cuppa for your travels?

Hey shadow.

Theists, the same thing that happens to the rest of us, except in a delusional way.

Poetry, monologues, and plays. I used to have time to do these last two more, but life got in the way. I miss it. I found some old pictures recently of some of my old monologue performances and they tugged at my aluminum heart. Anywhooooo! Now I mostly write prose to help with the cravings. I just write as a hobby, though. I've never published anything. I'm no writing guru! We have some amazing writers in the forums, though. I have deep respect for their work and talent. Very interesting folks.
