My name is Jim. I was raised in a lukewarm Protestant environment that was more about going to church than anything else, more 'Churchianity' than Christianity, I guess you could say. I became an atheist for a few years in my early twenties but then became a believer again a few years later. I really enjoy philosophy and theology although I am definitely a dilletante in both regards and love discussing religious and secular topics with everyone who is open-minded and respectful of others and their opinions. I love civil but spirited debate and discussion with all about just about anything. I look forward to getting to know you all and learning and growing more into my faith.
