"As you'd see from my icon (grant it that you know older-than-dirt mythology) I am also a bit of a Pagan Atheist. :) However I consider myself more of a Atheist Witch. I hold high reverence for the elements of the world. Earth, Fire, Air, Water.…"

"Baptism for adults was in the new testament. Infant baptism before the age of 'reason' (usually 8-12) was started by the Catholic church. This was an item of great debate during the reformation."

Even before I was atheist I was not Christian, husband is Christian but in a very lapsed Anglican sort of way. Before we got married we discussed how we wanted to raise our Children and we decided we wanted to raise them with choice...so therefore secular. It was important to us that our children make up their own minds regarding religion...they will probably therefore end up in a cult but hey our hearts are in the right place.
