Hi! I'm Hannah, and I very recently found out about Think Atheist through twitter and realized I needed to join (and what better day to join than Judgement Day itself) :) I was born and raised in Norway, which is where I currently live. Even though about 70-80% of our population are members of the state church, I find most of the people here surprisingly secular, so my upbringing has suffered very little religious influence and I never needed to "convert" to atheism, I've pretty much always been one. I love discussing religion and other related topics, so hoping to do more of that here :)

Welcome to TA!!!
Hope you like it here.

Hey Hannah, welcome to TA :)

Gotta say your country is a model state.

Hey Hannah!  What's up?

Hey Hannah! New here too! I'd love to talk more with you. :3



Welcome to to TA Hannah and Michael.
hey hey welcome!
Welcome to T|A!
Welcome, Hannah. It's very surprising for me to hear that 70-80 percent of the population in your country is religious. I thought for sure it was the other way around. Norway definitely give the US a run for it's money. Although, it is somewhat comforting to hear that the religious practices over there are based mostly on tradition (like Christmas here) than any deep rooted beliefs.
Thanks for clarifying that point, which has been a little puzzling to me. Norway, as well Scandinavia in general (don't hit me ;) ) seems to be a model corner of the globe, at least compared to, well, pretty much everywhere else. It's good to have more understanding of the position of atheists/secularists abroad.

Also, welcome to T|A! It's great to have you.
Welcome to T|A! I look forward to seeing you around the boards! :)

Hey Hannah, happy day after doomsday!:-)  I'm new also, glad to see I'm not the only one!


Always wanted to visit Scandinavia. My brother met his first wife in Kragero, which judging by the pictures is stunning! A beautiful, beautiful country (if a little chilly!).
