Hello! Excited to be here!

#1  Postby _2501_ » Nov 03, 2014 3:53 am

Hello everyone! Thought I'd introduce myself on this forum. I stumbled onto this site by clicking on the link provided by ScienceForums (where I'm also known as the same name), and this site also seemed pretty interesting to meet new people who may be similar to myself. So, here I am!

Anyways, I am a person who is looking for a community of like-mined individuals so that I may discuss topics such as rationalism, science, atheism, etc., and am hoping to learn a few things myself since I know very little about, well, anything at all. I find it to be quite hard to find a community when you are not currently a student, but I suppose that situation will change soon anyway since I am due to go back to school within next couple of months to study computer science. But until then, I need the intellectual stimulation, hence this online forum.

Also, in the past, I've read various forums, but otherwise did not participate in them at all. I guess I decided to change that today and see where it goes. Other then that, I hope to have fun on this site. Looking forward to it!

Ah, well, kinda late to change that now.

Besides, I've always wanted to see the end of the world, maybe now I'll finally see it :grin:. I only have 2499 posts left to go...

I am sure this is not true, but I admire the sentiment. Welcome 2501! :thumbup:
