I started questioning religion when I was around ten years old. I was 'married' to a christian for 20 years, have three brilliant children - divorced. Have for the last 20 odd years lived de facto. Am so pleased more Atheists are banding together to counter argue religion. I used to be a quiet Atheist, but found I had to have very logical discussions, and make a christian understand that they had to convince me of god, not the other way around. They want to believe in fairies or whatever, go for it, just leave me out of the delusions.
I actually wouldn't care what people believe in, It is when it intrudes on everybody's life, intrudes into secular schools, the charlatans and soothsayers earning heaps from gullible sheep,then there are the hierarchies of all religions, who simply cannot believe in a higher power, when in fact they are committing crimes against humanity.
In a Relationship
Why are you here?
We need teamwork to overcome the xians and fundamentalists that are so vocal, hypocritical and becoming more violent and abusive, all in the name of religion. To expose the fact that 'good people' can kill, maim, rape, torture all in the name of their god.
The more Atheists the merrier.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
General hypocrisy of the church, the violence, misogyny and war done in the name of religion made me start to question bible, at Catechism class, Ah, the Mysteries of God were abundant. That started me on the road to really analyze the Bible. In some of the posts people don't like being given the label Atheist, but it has to start somewhere. The more 'Atheists' to come out of the closet, the better, the religious people generally will realize just how many there are. We have to call ourselves something that joins us all. Just like Gays, the more that come out, people will realize just how many we are.
