Why are you here?
I'm happily well out of the atheist closet. A non-militant, I get no flak from the believers I know. They know I would metaphorically boil and eat them.
I want to hear from non-believers of varied ages and keep up with current happenings.
The religion you left
Catholic
Why you left your religion.
Well-meaning parents with limited horizons because they'd grown up during the 1930s Depression told me I was going to college because I was too lazy to get a job. I tossed them and their religion from my life. I later realized that 12 years in Catholic schools had made a traumatic departure necessary.

No
How did you hear about Think Atheist?
I think I heard of it in a survey.

    Interestingly, Tom, I was glancing through the posts on a thread today, and noticed one of my own with just the letter:

    B

    -- nothing else - I would have no occasion to write the letter, "B" and just let it stand alone, so I must assume something happened to rest of it as well. I'm wondering if possibly TA's server/servers has/have a bug of some kind?
