About Me:
Raised a "devout" Southern Baptist, recently embraced the idea that I don't have to pretend anymore and hold my head high that I am a nothing more than a biological entity endowed with this amazing brain and underused senses, now being fully immersed in this wonderful, amazing world.
Age
41-46
Why are you here?
Looking for others like me. It can be difficult, in fact at times even risky, to stake a claim as an atheist in southern Virginia. I think it's something we need to be proud of and not be afraid of anymore.
The religion you left
