About me

Occupation Retired
Location Citizen of the World, United States
Introduction I grew to doubt my parents' Christian beliefs when my family read the Bible cover to cover, several times. As a teenaged girl, I was especially horrified by the way most religions treated women. (And this was long before the feminist movement.) Frequently, I have been disappointed by people who claim to be religious, yet have behaved in unethical ways. I came to the conclusion that all religions cannot be true, but they can all be false. Today, I consider myself a freethinker. I base my beliefs on reason, not faith. I pull my life philosophies from many sources. Certainly a few come from religious origins. Others come from sources as varied as Confucius, Thomas Jefferson, Bertrand Russell, and Mark Twain.
