It's been an interesting couple of years. Growing up in a missionary family, going to church as well as attending christian school have been, for lack of a better word, interesting if troubling. So it is nice to meet other people of a like minded state. You sort of become alienated when everyone you know and associate with are christians.

 

So I'm rather excited to meet atheists as you can imagine. So hey, I'm Ashik.

Yes, well my father was a muslim before he became a christian.  

Hi! I was raised in a church off of mormonism for 17 years. This is a good escape for me. Glad you're here. :)

I know a mormon and a wiccan who was raised in a mormon community, so yea I heard it's a bit crazy.  Thanks for the welcome.  

Congrats for your escape from Mormonism.  I'm an escaped Catholic, myself, - over 66 years ago.
