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.

Thanks!

 

Oh, it's not without it's flaws, Norway seems to only keep to all its Christian traditions because Norwegians think it's cozy and familiar. When I was in elementary school we were all forced to go to church every Christmas regardless of what we or our parents wanted or believed, just for the sake of tradition. It's probably also why so many people are members of the church, but not very religious personally.

Hey Hannah!  What's up?
Hey! Not much, just exploring the site and seeing what it has to offer :)

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

 

 

Hey Michael! I guess I'll see you around :3
Welcome to to TA Hannah and Michael.

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.
