Hello, all! My name is Melody (please, call me Mel). I love to read and write, and am currently a senior in high school. I'm very geeky and will talk about my roleplaying, gaming, and TV obsessions (Doctor Who, Sherlock, and Supernatural) endlessly if you give me a chance. Strike up a conversation, we might have something in common and I don't mind inane chit-chat! :)
In a Relationship
Why are you here?
I want to talk to others who share my views and have intellectual discussions with people who won't judge me for my faith--or lack thereof.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
I have been an atheist for nearly twelve years, since I was seven. There was no 'sudden, big revelation'; no, I just realised that I didn't believe anything being said at my best friend's church. It was simple, really. I told her I didn't believe and she said, "Oh, okay," and we went back to listening to her father--the pastor--speak. There was no big issue. So I spent my childhood and teenage years as a very well-read atheist. Last year I was trolling around on the interwebs when something interesting caught my eye--an article on Satanism. Now I have always wondered if there was a philosophy that could accurately explain my views; I found one. I am a Satanist, one who is very quick to say that I neither worship nor believe in the Devil. I am still an atheist; I simply have found a religion (which is more like a philosophy, really) that shares my views. I am still a very good person, I know right from wrong, and there are things that I won't do because in my views, they are wrong. I don't need an all-powerful deity to threaten me with eternal damnation to make me want to do the right thing; I do that all on my own.
