    Hello everyone! This is my first account on here. Previously I was involved with other online religious/theology/philosophy discussion websites and groups but have been on a hiatus from the forum format for a few years and decided to try this one.

    Brief:
    I was raised by a Protestant mother and Catholic father both of whom would fall under the weekend/twice a year Church goers so nothing too observant (secular if anything). I was a self identified atheist (capital N for new) for about 5 years (age 17-21) before diving more into philosophy and theology as a side interest. Today I am a practicing Reform Jew (yes we do exist) who recently finished conversion. Outside of religion I am a biotech / pre-med major previously computer science and certified armchair aviation enthusiast (lol).

    Pretty terrible at introductions and summarizing a decade so ask me anything!

    @Revoltingest , if I wasn't going to be kashrut observant I would go for crab cakes like a proper New Englander.

    Crabcakes are over-rated IMO.
    And I've had good ones....or as good as they get in Baltimore.
