Why not? Isn't nice to associate with like minded people?
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
Extreme prejudices in religion made me see that the religious were no better than the next person, so why be part of something you hate?
Along with that, what is the point in blindly following a book that is full of stories and tales that have NO substantial reasoning behind them? Isn't the bible just someone's interpretation of what someone else said? What if I had said that, oh deary me... the sea has started to turn a funky red colour... but look there is also algae of a red colour in abundance! Then some dude came along with a little editing in mind and came up with "water turning red... its bloody water." Does that make the bible anymore right than those two oppositely directed statements? Funny example to give, yes.... but isn't the bible a funny example to give as reason for many things as well?

That's a great point. Does it really matter if the government knows you're with someone? When did it become their business anyway? The true connection is between the people, that's what matters. I don't care what box I check on my tax forms. I wouldn't insist on being with an atheist, but when I have kids I would never allow them to be brainwashed, as so many religious people do.
You may be unconventional, but you're rational. Happiness really is the important thing. What is your equation for happiness? (Or do you even have one? haha)
Yeah, it's pretty interesting how we can be seen like that. Meanwhile, we tend to be very moral people. And even better, we're moral for the right reasons! I don't have to believe a scary fairytale in order to do the right thing.
