Neil deGrasse Tyson Fanclub

For all of you who love astrophysicist Dr. Tyson. I, personally, think that Neil's talks are like stand-up comedy. Only better. He is the Carl Sagan of our generation. A true pioneer of science.See More

Not Out the Closet!

I am an Atheist, very few people know. My Mother, my wife and two very close friends. Although I want to be a "Public" Atheist I am not there yet. This is a forum for seeking advice and to share experience. Things to consider and be aware of.

Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic
About Me:
I am a married mother of two and grandmother of five. I am an ex Christian (Baptist)who was raised on a literal interpretation of the Bible. I allowed myself to question my beliefs when I was in my early thirties and began a journey that ended in my becoming an agnostic in that I accept that it cannot be known whether there exists some creative, self aware, energy that could be called a "God." I am an atheist, however, in that I do not accept any definition of God that humans have invented; and I do not think a God is necessary to explain the existence of the universe and whatever life inhabits it.
Age
47-52
Relationship Status
Married
Why are you here?
As I am surrounded by believers of the more conservative, fundamentalist, sort I would like to be able to talk openly to those who share my views and hopefully to some who have made the same journey out of belief that I have. And, perhaps, I can even be of help to someone who is in the early stages of his or her struggle because I know what they are going through.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
I came to realize that what I believed to be true was, in fact, false.
