Hello to Atheist Forums
Been snooping around for a while so I thought it was time to join in and give it a go.

I am a retired Engineer.

I am an atheist, not an agnostic, an atheist. Been one all my life I guess, but really have become quite interested in atheism and religions since retirement.

I am a skeptic to a fault, firm supporter of science and evidence base thinking.

Look forward to adding a few comments/threads Smile

Hi, new guy! Pull up a theist and make yourself comfortable! Someone'll be round with the welcome cookies soon enough (between you and me, they're slacking a bit).

Any relation to Field Marshall Haig? Or the scotch?
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'

Welcome and have at it.

I'm curious why you specify "atheist, not agnostic" but you don't need to answer that here if you prefer not to. There are many of us here who self describe as both agnostic and atheist. Perhaps you feel better prepared to defend the position that gods do not exist than do I.
