Hi, I noticed your name Prorok on Moran's blog. It means Prophet in Croatian. I wonder if you (or your ancestors) are from that area.
I am aware of the translation, although not in Croatian; my family is from Poland, and it means the same in Polish.
Slavic languages have the same root,I can understand my Polish friends if they talk slowly. I would guess you were Catholic originally, like me. Now I see you quite changed, unlike me.
My father was raised Catholic, but I grew up attending UCC services. I am indeed quite openly an atheist, and I'm happy to talk about it.
Pardon, what is UCC? Atheist mind set is alien to me, I don't know any atheists personally. Closest thing to atheist is one colleague who believes in God but doesn't like organized religion.
The UCC is the United Church of Christ, a fairly liberal Protestant denomination. I don't really regret being raised in a Christian household; it was knowing more about religion that led me not believing in god.If you follow my blog, you'll find atheism as the theme. I really need to do some more writing, and will hopefully be getting a new article up very soon. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I very much value questions, as rational inquiry is how I think we can best learn about the world.
OK Matt I may have some questions, but I'll be busy tomorrow.Maybe Wednesday.
