About Me:
I'm a writer, a geek, and a bit spastic.
I love making things with my hands, playing with cats, and peppering nerdy movie comments into every day conversation.
Why are you here?
I found this place via a google search for atheist writer's groups--the vast amount I have found are Christian or similar and it's very -hard- to share some of my work there without them basically going "YOU CAN'T DO THIS", also this place seems interesting and full of friendly and engaging people, with whom I would not mind conversing.
The religion you left
Christian, Was never a part of one
Why you left your religion.
After sitting through a sermon on why homosexuals are such bad people, I somewhat officially left.
But ever since I was a kid, the question in my head was "Religion is for the sick and the poor. Which one are you?" Those that flock to religion are desperate for wealth or health, the two things that religions often promise.

My Story

I figure this is a decent enough place to post my leaving of religion, especially since it might help the people here get to know me better.


My dislike of church started young. I was never really brought, and although my mother was raised catholic and my dad in a church-ridden area, I never heard anything but hatred of the tithing system growing up--we apparently had a few churches, that when they began going, asked immediately how much of my parent's income could be promised…

Jonel thanks for the friend request, it is my pleasure.  The Singles Group unfortunately never really got off the ground.   I lost steam in trying to keep it active...  Maybe I should try a second round of activity there, and try to resurrect some dormant interest in the group???

Welcome Jonel. I'm very much enjoying your posts. They are very thoughtful and candid. I expect my next foray into university, a fifth time, will be to do a masters degree in anthropology, it's been a passion of mine for so long... Enjoy this place, you'll have all sorts of encounters!!
