First, glad you're here. Make yourself at home...

You might get something out of this page -- but it's snarky, and that tone is not meant for you. I threw it together after getting some Christian-bashing viciousness from one of "those sorts" of atheists. So if you check it out, ignore the tone!:  https://www.fisheaters.com/seculars.html

This seems like an active, healthy community that I would enjoy becoming a part of.

Best,

Greetings.  I was unaware that there was a philosophical position of an agnostic atheist, as well as an agnostic theist; the latter is what I always though was the definition of an agnostic and the distinction between agnosticism and atheism (if that makes any sense at all).  I also met a “Cantankerous Thomist” today, I have so much to learn.
"Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?" On hearing this, Jesus said, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice.' For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."  Matthew 9:10-14

Welcome. I was an agnostic atheist years ago before I reverted.

What fascinates you about Catholicism? Anything specific?

Thanks, Boobfar, for joining, and, Vox, for a link I did not visit before here. No matter what one's typology, it's a fact-filled, fun, and appealing rabbit hole to drop into. Great resource for anyone with a curious mind, a searching intellect, and a contrarian bent. Which is all of us here on FE.
