|1st message from another poly atheist
||[Jan. 25th, 2010|05:56 pm]
I've read through several of the recent entries in this community, and it seems to be full of tangents. :-) I think I see why it's not very lively. |
It's about Polyamory. Hi. I was raised in a traditional family, but when I fell in love, it was to a poly man - and that fit me perfectly. That was 28.5 years ago now. I think I am "wired" to be poly. But I think that monogamy would have worked for me, too, as long as I also had lots of hugging friends.
It's about atheism. That's me, too. I was raised some version of Christian, did some exploring while in college, and figured out that I wasn't any form of Christian. I have no particular animosity toward religions. I just don't happen to subscribe to any of them. (I looked at a few others while I was at it.)
I was exposed to some mild versions of pagan while growing up, too. I don't get that, either. If you worship, you're in a religion. It doesn't matter what you have ceremonies and meetings for, does it? I work with nature all the time, I garden. I respect nature, but I don't worship it. Or the sun. Or the moon. I am aware that my reaction to external elements is all chemical within my body, and that's fine with me.
Other things I am: albino, writer, realist, optimist, science fiction fan, mom, student, teacher, science groupie, wife, lover, artist, reader (of books). Addicted to NCIS, chocolate, morning coffee, pets.
