About Me:
I am a 20 year old student at Texas Tech University. I am Pre-med, Majoring in Psychology and minoring in Biology. I am engaged to the love of my life :) And will be teaching Biology Lab next semester with a brilliant professor who has to combat the Bible Belt when teaching evolution. So I am very excited.

Why are you here?
Living in the Bible Belt, it is nice to read some intelligent conversations and know that I am not the only atheist out there. (My fiancé is one, but that is about the only person I know.)

Why you left your religion.
I grew up going from church to church (I've been Southern Baptist, Church of Christ, Protestant, Lutheran, Non-Denominational, you name it!) and never really felt like I belonged there. I thought it was because everyone there had grown up in the church and I hadn't. But now I know it was because I couldn't believe half the shit they were saying. I would get up and walk out of sermons because I didn't agree with what they were saying, and I didn't understand any of it. But I never had really heard the term atheist or considered it a real option for the longest time. But now I am out and free and I don't have to keep trying to reconcile what I know as right and natural with what they are trying to tell me.

Now I usually just keep my mouth shut and delete the emails because I would like to keep my job. Also, since I am in the bible belt these kinds of things happen at just about every job so it…
