"Welcome! You've come to this website which is a good resource for speaking with like-minded and understanding individuals. I must admit my life didn't really change once I realized I no longer believed. I don't go to church anymore,…"
"I love living in America and being a citizen of the US. While perceptions must change and there is still work to be done, I'm able to have a career as a woman and be independent. I am free to have no religion. I live in a higher standard of…"
"PBS. They haven't lost self-respect like the other networks and fallen prey into reporting entertainment gossip and videos of cats as news. BBC because I think it's good to have a news source outside of the US, especially on international…"
"1. I'm not sure what I will do when and if I have kids. But I'm not upset my parents lied to me about Santa Claus. It's a fun, harmless tradition. The belief in god(s) is not something you are taught to grow out of because it…"
