Hi there everyone! A friend of mine linked me to a news story that was on here a bit ago, and I figured I'd check the site out a bit more.  I'm hoping that a site like this, I'll find more people…Continue

"Hello Nicholas and welcome to TA!  Talking with your unbelief with friends and family who believe is difficult.  You should take your time, do it at your own pace, and reach out from us if you need help or advice. I applaud your courage!"

"Hey, welcome first of all. I guess it is a nice thing to have the power to believe and have faith in something that doesn't exist. But then again they should have the same respect towards you and your beliefs. Maybe some new friends will do it"

"I've been an Atheist for over 66 years now, but I still have relatives relatives, & 'kids' who still believe. I don't 'look down' on them - just their beliefs."

"I guess this touches on one reason why many atheists are down on religion.  Now, I make no statement on your friends or on their respect for you as a person, but if atheism was respected in your cultural circle, why would being openly atheist…"

"Hello Nicholas. Just read your post. I think that the views people take and the degree to which they take them is a key point here. Some people come across as being what you might describe as militant Atheists. Maybe they have an extremely negative…"

About Me:
I'm a 23 year old out on a journey to find myself. I moved from the California Bay Area to Seattle, Washington, having never been to Washington before. I've been here for a little over a year now, and I'm loving it to no end. Meeting people is a little sparse, but hopefully in time that'll change.
Age
19-24
Why are you here?
Most of my own personal views have been attacked so many times, that I've stopped discussing religions with people all together. Most of my own beliefs have been attacked by atheists, and so I'm trying to find some like minded people out there, hopefully. Not starting an argument would be nice as well.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
I could no longer force myself to believe something, that for so long I had no belief in. I hold no hatred or ill will towards religion, but refuse to believe it myself.
