Hello?

Is anyone out there? Is anyone listening?

I'm sure that there are many of you out there who are interested in what bloggers have to say (and I'm sure its not a god), and I'm excited about that. I'm going to use this blog to document my experience as an atheistic amputee, and I welcome comments from anyone who is interested! I hope that both atheists and amputees can use what I write to help them, and in turn help me out as well.

Well, lets get started! I'm Jim. I was born without my left hand just below the elbow. I'm actually not an amputee by traditional definition, as the word 'amputee' implies that I lost a limb at some point in my life. While this may be the case, the medical world still refers to people like me as 'congenital amputee'. Conditions like mine are rare, as my arm developed as a normal arm would, but it just stopped growing.

Well, I'm done with my introduction, please use this first post to introduce yourselves if you find your way to my blog!

In the meantime, please check out these guys:
