I'm Chris, a once-regular on some Christian forums. Kept in touch with teddyv for a while, and appreciate his invite here! About myself: in my 50's, grew up in the Church of Christ and currently attend a CofC congregation that resembles the one of my youth very little. For my day job, I write computer software, and I write novels in my copious spare time. Some say that internet debates don't change anybody's opinion. I beg to differ. However, it does require 1) a seeker of truth and open to the idea you might be wrong, and b) lots of time. I spent about fifteen years in Christian, atheist and political debate forums, and was a far different person when it was over. I most likely won't be very active, but I'll try to pop in now and then to see how things are going.
