""Why am I an atheist?" The other options available seemed a bit silly. "Are there any obstacles I face as an atheist?" Yes, but they are not significant and not so different from the nuisances most people face in my…"

"I think I started becoming an atheist, (because for me, it was a process) when I first discovered there were many different religions. Being raised Catholic, of course I was taught that our religion was the "right religion". But then I…"

"Yes, sometimes it feels like I see way too many stupid people. Sadly they sometimes don't even know they are stupid."

Thanks for commenting.  I think I stayed in Dothan on my way to Panama City.  Does it have a Holiday Inn and an Applebee's?

Good to see someone your age with an open mind.  Any other atheist around there?  Have any problems with christian friends?

I have to bite my tounge sometimes.  But I realize I should be more outspoken.  Like the religous right are. 

Have a good day.

Welcome Brittney.  I was looking at the membership map and somehow your name came up.  I am from Knoxville, TN.  Belong to ASK (Atheist Society of Knoxville).  Nice to have like minded people we can have a conversation with.  Have a nice day.
