    Hi,
    I am new at this forum and thought I would start by introducing myself and the reason why I'm here. My name is Henry, i'm a 40 year old gentleman who grew up in the country of Sweden.

    Sweden being a largely agnostic or even atheist country, I haven't really come into contact with religion besides what we were taught in school and what i read myself. Other than my mother who is a non-practicing Christian, i don't really know anyone who is religious at all. I rarely come in contact with religion, in my day to day life.

    I wouldn't call myself an agnostic or an atheist really, as i have never payed religion much notice. I can't really say that i miss anything spiritual or physical in life, i'm a quite happy individual, I have no fear of death, certainly no fear of life. I am however a curious soul, which is what has brought me to this forum.

    I'm hoping to have many friendly, enlightening discussions, and educate myself at the same time !

    Swedish is a very direct language, so i beg your pardon if anything in the text above comes across as rude or impolite, that is not my intention. English is my second language.

    /Henry

    Thanks for the warm welcome !
    I did enjoy some interesting reads in the many forums throughout the day. Unfortunately i am not allowed to post in most of them as only christians are allowed to do so, i presume that is due to people misbehaving in the past.
    In particular the theology section contained several interesting threads. Looking forward to read more and perhaps create some threads of my own in the discussion & debate section. Hope to see you there :)
