Hi! My name is Lindsay, I’m from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I’m married to my wonderful husband Gord, no kids yet!
Until recently I considered myself a person of faith. I was completely credulous and I would believe pretty much anything I read or anything somebody said to me with authority.
That all changed when I saw the movie Religulous, and the idea that doubt was a virtue and that questioning authority is healthy was introduced to me. I began to look at my beliefs with a critical eye and I saw that my blind faith was holding me back from learning all that the world had to offer.
I was struck by enlightning!
I am now a science enthusiast, a skeptic, and an atheist. It’s my hope that through this blog I’ll be able to share with as many people as possible the bolts of enlightning that I encounter in my day to day life.
I don’t have a background in any sciences. I have a BA in History and Anthropology, so I invite scrutiny to anything I post on this blog. I want to learn and I want to know when I’m wrong, otherwise I’ll never learn!
Please post a comment if there’s anything else you’d like to know about me.
Update: January 4, 2009: I just wanted to add some links to posts that go into more detail in describing my background with regards to my transition from a person of faith to an atheist and a skeptic:
