Hi, fellow agnotics and others!
I am a budding crotchety old man, newly retired from 40-something years in oil, gas, and petrochemical industry operations, retired early because of a hearing problem. My brain still functions though, I think.
I grew up going to church every time there was church, even every Baptist revival in town. It failed to indoctrinate me. I was bored to death. I even joined the choir as a teenager just so I could look out and see who else didn't bow their heads during prayers.
I live in Oklahoma, am soon moving to a very small and quiet town in Kansas, but I left my heart in Colorado almost 30 years ago. If I could afford it, and my wife would capitulate, I would move back there in a heartbeat. I love the dry climate and the mountains. And I love winter weather and the sports that come with it.
