I am retired and traveling a lot. I really would like to meet someone that enjoys traveling especially to the western half of the US.[facebook.com]
An Up date.
I have led an interesting life. Born on the gulf coast in the mid 50s, I attended HS just outside of Houston and began college at what is now Texas State. I joined the Air Force to avoid getting drafted in Vietnam. I served 6 years based in Texas, Denver, and Spokane. I traveled extensively both for duty and pleasure. after the service, I worked with the IRS, my own business (tax consulting) production manager at a newspaper, then back to taxes. i was married 32 years and have 1 son, been divorced nearly 10 years. Any questions feel free to ask.
One of my response to believers to make them think is, I sleep like god during the holocaust. In spite of religious upbringing by the time I WAS 14, I had decided that I was unsure if there was a god, and that if there was did he care. I was raised in a retail/political family so I new how to fain belief. When I was 16, I told my mother I was agnostic, she almost disowned me. I realized that as long as I pretended to believe I was OK. When I joined the Air Force, I stopped going to church and always had a reason not to go. When I got married, my wife was a very religious Lutheran, when I was refuse communion I was able to use that as an excuse to not take part. After my enlistment was up we moved to my old hometown, she demanded that I go to my old church(a liberal Methodist church). My competitiveness and desire to be the best at everything I get involved in led me to several leadership roles, I took a job with the world largest weekly religious newspaper, I dealt with our multitude of different religious customers much as I would have dealt political customers or tax clients. Nothing will turn you in to a true cynic as working for the church. The validation I needed came from the very clergy I had to interact with. Many did not believe in what they preached, but it was pure politics. I operated at a business level with the church at the national/world level and I realized more and more that it was a business. The last time I attended a church service was the Sunday before my divorce. My son is an atheist, my ex-wife is a UU now, I am still an Agnostic, I don't have the answers, and no one ever will until we are dead.
