Hullo, and welcome to my gorgeous profile! In short, (Or not) I'm an 18 year old atheist-agnostic living in the sunny realm of Ontario, Canada. (Sarcasm...) Outside of my erm, non-religious life, I like reading and writing, Doctor Who, and classic rock. (My favourites are Queen and ELO!)
Why are you here?
I suppose I'm here because I want a sense of community. I grew up in both a very Christian home and in a very tight, family-like church, but only really came out as an atheist quite recently. Even then, I only told my parents, so I've got this whole band of people-best friends, family, etc.-who I've known my whole life, but have no idea that I'm not religious.
Like a lot of people have probably noticed, there's a bit of a...stigma against atheism. It's okay to be non-religious, but the moment you say the 'A' word you can feel a little bit intimidated. So that's why I'm here; I don't know anyone in the real, non-internet world who's an atheist, and I just wanted to be somewhere where I can share ideas, and hear what other people have to say.
