I am new to the forums and would like to introduce myself.
I'm a religious researcher.
I recently finished writing a book regarding religious matters, with a huge potential to cause a stir, and since I know that due to my proposal I will be attacked by fundamentalist zealots and blind believers, I'm working on building contacts with open minded people who could support me in this enterprise.
I’ll be honest with you, I’m not exactly an atheist. The reason why I’m here is because I do prefer an honest atheist than a hypocrite believer. It is impossible to argue with blind believers when it is about questioning religious dogmas.
I'll later start a discussion about my book. I'm trying to get it published.
Keep in touch if you feel interested. I have plans to give away the book for free in places like this forum.
PS: I've read the RULES and I know about the advertising restrictions. I DID NOT COME HERE TO ADVERTISE NOR TO SELL ANYTHING!
You are a gnostic, which, of course, means you are not atheistic. You are quite the opposite in fact. So why lie about what you are from the start??? Why not simply tell us you are gnostic? Want to fool the poor dumb atheists??? Maybe get a few to buy your wonderful new book about gnosticism, which none of us poor dumb atheists have heard about?? Yeah, that's the ticket--snake oil salesmen from times long past have used that tact. And since your religion is only another form of snake oil why not use that tact? Honesty of the actual sort just is not becoming a christian anyway.
I would suggest mr. gnostic, that your very life is based upon lies. You would not know the truth if it slapped you in the face.
Oh, welcome to our little forum....................................
