Default Hi everyone, newbie here

My name is James and I'm new to Heathen Hub and forums in general. My short version background is I grew up Pentecostal, graduated from bible college and was a preacher for a short time. I found many things didn't add up and I couldn't honestly pretend it did. This was twenty years ago. Over the years deconverted to atheist leaning agnostic now thanks to study and honest introspection. I'm currently a (male) nurse (for ten years) in the Deep South, so I'm still in the closet about my atheism because of hostility towards atheism. I look forward to this forum so I can communicate with likeminded people.

Welcome to the Hub James. Interesting past there. I'd guess that's quite a perspective to branch out from. Nice to meet you.

Thanks Never and Gurdur. Gurdur I think I met you at the Heathen Hangout too. How does it primarily differ from the Heathen Hub?

The Hangout is for atheists only, or basically non-theists only. The Hub is for everyone.

Hiya, JOwenRN! You know, I was trying to puzzle out how to pronounce that till I read (ha, eventualy I -did- read your posts!) that your first name was James. Herpderp.

Welcome to the Hub!

Howdy James! Good to see you meandered over here. You and I "met" in the Hangout earlier. You'll find this also a very comfy place to chat and share. It is a bit quieter but just as interesting and some different folks here, too.
