My name is Brian. I have been listening since 07. This whole "critical thinking" thing turned my live upside down. I am now a reformed believer in crap science and pseudoscience. Just trying to spread the word of evidence based science and skepticism.
To get good practice in spreading rationality to other people, find a brick wall and smash your head against it.
And welcome aboard!
yeah i feel ya there. i lost my faith at 16 and now am 28. my whole family are evangelical Christians. they often like to gang up on me. i have learned a few thing from that. but i kinda feel like i repeat myself quit often....mainly..."cite your sources" to the...."a scientist turned christian by trying to disprove" comments they like to tell me
My dad was really quite religious, but we never talked about my leaving faith. By the time he discovered it, his time was fairly short due to cancer, and I didn't want this to be a burden on our final years together. So, I basically avoided it with my immediate family, and both of my brothers are non-religious as well. My younger brother apparently spoke to my dad about it at some point in a "let's agree to disagree" kind of thing.
