"What an interesting and provocative situation to be in as a teacher! Well, good for you for bringing the subject up and for allowing the brave in the class to say that they "know a good guy" who is an atheist.  Baby steps, indeed. I…"

"Yeah, some of the students definitely had the idea of atheist=bad person or devil worshiper or something bad like that. I would never hope to change my students' minds about religion, that's really not my place, but I DO hope to have them…"

"It's an interesting approach, I had no conversation during school regarding belief and morality in terms of religion.  As a child all I ever heard of atheists was from sunday school (very young), and upon hearing my friends mother was an…"

I think I've always known I don't believe in god . . .

Hi everyone,I just stumbled upon this site today and thought I'd join in. I've been an atheist for as long as I can remember but I usually don't talk about it much, don't find need to. If it comes up I tell people if not I generally keep it to myself.As I wrote in the About Me section, my grandmother was Catholic and I was baptized and started classes towards receiving my first communion but I never made it that far. I don't think I ever really believed in god or really even understood that the…See More

Discussing Atheism in the Classroom

Last week I had my 7th graders listening to a podcast on This American Life about kidnapping for ransom and the guest who worked for a K+R firm said that one of the ways to survive a kidnapping in Mexico is to ask your kidnapper for a bible because it creates a relationship between you and the abductor (because of the Catholic nature of Mexico) . After the podcast one of the students raised her hand and said, "Well that doesn't make sense at all. Why would the kidnapper want to give you a…See More

Why you left your religion.
I'm not sure I ever believed. When I was younger my grandma made me go to Sunday school to receive my first communion but I never made it that far. I think I never really understood that I was supposed to believe that what I was being taught was true. To me it was just stories that I was learning at the same time I was learning about dinosaurs at school. The two just didn't mesh. In general my family just wasn't that religious though I'm the only one that identifies as an atheist.
