Taken in 2015 just before all my hair was shaved off for charity. The girls at work thought it would be a terrific hoot to have me with pink hair, I thought it may as well be a mohawk if we're going all in :-)

Bio

Baptised and confirmed as a Catholic . Had doubts about all of it as early as primary school, couldn't square the circle then, can't now, so don't even try.
I suppose the absolute clincher, not that there was any doubt, was 9/11.

Found Christopher Hitchens a couple of years ago and he articulated, far better than I could, exactly what I thought.
I love intellectual discourse on atheism but not silly semantics and points scoring. Essentially each to their own just don't try and impose your beliefs on me or on the unsuspecting or vulnerable.

I'm not particularly bothered about the dating aspect nothing I write will mean or alter anything, it will come down to what I look like, a little shallow perhaps but from experience that's all that counts. I may make some friends alone the way but as for a romantic involvement, highly unlikely, I'd like to be proved wrong but that is also highly unlikely.

A brief idea of what makes me...me, my two daughters ( 15 & 12, I started late) music of most kinds but the default is rock in all its forms, sci-fi, astronomy, the ancients, bit of art and craft with some sketching and woodwork, that's about it really.

I could write a massive bio but is anybody really interested, if you are then please ask smile001.gif
Other than that I'm friendly and chatty, unless you're a twat, so if you fancy a chin wag, from anywhere in the world, give me a shout smile001.gif

PS I am a rabid Minnesota Vikings fan, although in the UK, and if you are a Vikings fan I share your pain (Every f---ing season!)

Maths aside I came to understand that the ancients had a methodology that has, for the most part been lost. It was always about maximising local resources and a logical, low tech approach. It also took a bit of imagination, vision and some balls lol :-)

I'm not alone out of choice but it is a lot better than what I had when I was with someone. I guess I've just got used to it but have always been comfortable in my own company. It may also be a factor that in any given month, take this month for example, I'll spend 10 evenings with my daughter, 14 evenings doing my 2nd job so will only have 7 evenings to myself so I'm not alone all that much.

Any speculations on where your thoughts come from? Chiefly the thought that there is no god versus ...
ipdg77 comments on Sep 29, 2018:
This is probably fairly basic but here goes. I was baptised a catholic and brought up as one. I was in primary school (aged about 8) when I started to question the validity of what I was being told about god such as; water into wine, feeding the 5,000, not going to church was a mortal sin equivalent to murder (also a mortal sin) and so on. It all seemed unbelievable and that notion has stayed with me. As I've grown older I've read a number of religious texts across many faiths and the notion has not only remained but flourished as I came to understand that it's nonsense. Where did my thoughts come from? I think from the way I'm wired mainly but perhaps the seed was sowed, unwittingly, by my mother who said that when she too asked questions of the 'fantastic' when she was younger she was told that was where faith came in. That struck me as flimsy at best even at a young age, but my mother had a faith throughout her life. Is my skepticism my own? I was brought up to question things and to ask if i didn't know or better still go to the library and find out for myself. So I guess my parents were instrumental in this even if they didn't expect me to question the validity and/or the existence of god. For most of my life my skepticism was a private matter only because there was no one as interested as I was in religion, not god necessarily, and the impact it was having and continued to have on various peoples. I found out about the atheist community about 3 years ago and came across Christopher Hitchins. I thought 'Wow!' this guy thinks the same as I do, he's come to the same conclusions I have albeit in a far more robust and perhaps intellectual way but none the less it acted as a confirmation of my own thoughts and findings. So if I have just uploaded a mental operating system I was and am not aware of it and so I'm quite happy that my skepticism and 'no belief' is mostly my own.

ipdg77 comments on Sep 29, 2018:
I don't think it's pretentious, not where it relates to me at any rate, I consider myself to be an atheist solely because I see no evidence for the existence of any god, anything divine or anything supernatural. It's not a lack of belief it's just non belief, there's nothing, that I can see, to believe in. I don't define myself by the term and it certainly isn't the most important thing in life to me.
Does anyone truly "believe"?
ipdg77 comments on Sep 29, 2018:
I would have thought that if you really believe in a god or deity it's down to what you make of it, you certainly don't need a religion to tell you how to believe. If you're following a religion's way of doing things you actually believe in the religion not the god they believe in.

Fermi's Paradox: [patreon.com]
ipdg77 comments on Sep 28, 2018:
I get the paradox of lack of evidence versus high probability but..... Lack of evidence is based around what we currently assume and see as evidence and we've only been 'aware' of the possibility of life elsewhere in the universe for maybe 500 years tops, apart from a few, so they could have been coming and going for 13.8 billion years (less 500) and we wouldn't know. We don't know enough about the universe yet to even get near this question so the paradox in relation to alien life is a non sequitur. The question posed comes from a source of assumed knowledge, this is flawed as the assumptions are just that.
