I would describe myself as the thinking man's atheist; however, it seems to me that the majority of atheists are already very intellectual, so that seems almost bland.
I'm still easing into my atheism and, admittedly, am still mostly in the closet about this to my family. I am, however, rather vocal about my beliefs (or lack thereof) at my school.
Why are you here?
I've been wanting to start a blog for some time, and this seems like a good place to start. I've been having discussions with my college's local Christian Apologetics club, which are always very fun and seem to be just begging to be written down.
I'm also here to share thoughts and debate points with fellow atheists and freethinkers, and for the support that comes with interacting with like-minded peoples.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
While I had always tried to be knowledgeable about my religion (and still do), I was never all that religious to begin with (at least not compared to those around me).
There was a brief time when I had half-heartedly considered joining the the priesthood; however, I realize now the only thing I really ever wanted from it was the power and influence that went with the collar.
