"Good on ya" I live in north central Texas and religion permeates everything and for that reason about everything pisses me off as well. For you advice of being open with ones atheism from the start, my personal calling card has my…"
"I live in Southeast MO... The Bootheel is a terrible, backwards place. Anyway, when I first moved here I started dating a Catholic. When you date a Catholic, at least in my experience, you date the entire family. I was warned not to tell any of his…"
"Hah That does work in some cases, and I'd like to save as many lemmings as I could. A lot of the ones I deal with down here don't start to think though, they just.. yell about jesus.. aaaaaaaall the time.But I'm moving soon, I've…"
"Jesse, don't know how to find an atheist/agnostic girl for sure, but the thing I do in dealing with people who are thumpers is to merely ask them questions. People don't change (or think) if they are told something is true or…"
"Helen, you beat wholesale ass in that "debate". I'd go with crying over laughing though, the fact that people can be that blatantly stupid is honestly depressing to me. But, as long as people like you are around I'll have a tiny…"

I'm 19 and in college. I live in the bible belt and have to deal with close minded people who assume that because I'm an atheist I'm a bad person,have low moral standing, or that I am just an idiot for having these beliefs. Not that it bothers me cause from what I see of them I don't have to worry about being less intelligent than they are.
Why are you here?
I'm usually not. There are times when I get back on here to see what has changed and what new and awesome stuff people have posted.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
There are just so many contradictory and stupid things in the bible and I could no longer stand it. I steadily slid to the edge of the pew then just had enough and got up and left.
People believe all of these ridiculous things because they're afraid of the unknown, or can't accept the finality of death, or want to believe that life has reason so they feel important. The fact as far as I see it is that we are floating our here, all of us, and we better get used to it.
