i found this site some months ago and I was really happy about that, because I was hardly argueing about religion at school during my A-Levels and will now continue with it in the vacational school (Berufsschule in german ;-) ). But than i was a bit disillusioned, because all I found was "It´s okay to think atheist". For me it´s not just okay, it´s self-evident and I´m not looking for how I can explain my self to me or the others.
I´m looking for a way to convince the others (I tried it so often...), to make atheism to become popular and a recognizable movement.
But all I really got to know here, was that occasionally Germany is far more open to think atheist, than america, what´s possibly the home of the most members of thinkatheist.com and that it´s harder for the most people to come out with their true belief, because church seems to has much more power than it has in my home-country.
So, back to the question on top, can we help people finding there way out of religous bounds, shortning the long way, that as I suppose everyone has gone through, who thinks atheist? Is there an effectiv way to "spread" atheism / thinking atheist?
I hope I`m not to fanatic, having those ideas, that shouldn´t be solved through violence or Treatment, like church did it in the past. But I´m tired of talking...
(Also in Germany I´m part of a small minority and it is not likely seen by, especially older people, to come out as an atheist)
