About Me:
Hello.

I live my life on the Internet.

My true personality can only be revealed digitally, as I'm extremely uncomfortable talking face to face with people I don't know.

I'm a radical atheist. I've been a Christian since I was young, when my mother brought me up (she used to bribe me to go to church with candy). We stopped going when I became older (I think it was because my mother was too lazy) and that's when I started thinking about God.

I never really thought that he was there. I'd prayed to him (back then I thought He worked like a genie) about stuff I wanted, like a dog, and whatever. It never worked, so I asked my dad- he just said, "God picks and chooses the good." I was thinking, "How am I not good? What makes others so special?"

This is when I started to become skeptic.

In 1st grade, I met my friend Emma. She was baptized Catholic, but didn't attend church. We soon hit it off. Sometimes I'd go to church and confess in sleepovers "I don't think I believe in God." That's when I knew she didn't either.

Now I'm in high school and I've read two of Dawkins' works- The Greatest Show on Earth and The God Delusion, which has confirmed my disbelief in any higher power.

I think myself as a radical atheist, and sometimes a pantheist.

When I'm bored I like to read the Bible and mock everything.

:D

Why are you here?
I'm bored, and I feel like reading some intellectual stuff after not being productive all day.

Why you left your religion.
Eh, I was always skeptic. Maybe because my parents were never too religious. I've also read a lot of scientific material (I'm interested in science and I go to a STEM school) and decided for myself that God is a stupid concept.
