"I gave it it all up in 1986, against a background of having sister who is Head of RE at a Catholic Boarding School in England, two cousins who are/were priests.. one has recently died and I wonder what happended when he realised there was nothing…"

"Thanks for sharing, Rich. It's extremely frustrating, is it not? I've only been an atheist for a year and a half and I have gotten to the point where I want to grab some of them by the shoulders, shake them, and scream, "IT'S…"

"Hello from Cardiff Wales.. yes I can vouch for all of that related to the UK. Church attendances, particularly Catholic are dropping at an incredible rate. Hardly any men are going into the priesthood.. strange when it's supposed to be a…"

"My favorite quote ever "trapped in a Xtian theme park". I hope you don't mind if I use it. That's just what I feel like here in Virginia. In the one-half mile road I take to the gym there are 7 churches. Each has multiple…"

"It could be the area of America as well. I've grown up in Maine, and we had subtle hints of religion such as a bible club in high school and a few radicals in a certain church, but it is never a very vocal issue. I never claimed to be part of a…"

Some thoughts about those of us of no belief…

Yes, us, we. I don’t always like to use the term atheist as so many people of no belief find the term a little uncomfortable so humanist, bright, apatheist, secularist, Darwinist, heathen… whichever floats your boat. So, I wondered why is it that the term atheist can have such a potentially negative connotation. Of course, the various religions will always wield it as such in order to convince the faithful that the faithless are in some way in league with their dark lords; that the very absence…See More

"Some interesting points raised there.. I agree with you all for the most part. I was of course using the second definition of miltant and not tarnishing us with the same extremism as the ultra conservatives. I was raised without any religion at all…"

Stacy B commented on Rich Meredith's blog post 'Some thoughts about those of us of no belief…'

Shine commented on Rich Meredith's blog post 'Some thoughts about those of us of no belief…'
"To take away a man’s faith, his hopes and dreams, no matter how sad we think them is very wrong. Not if these hopes and dreams involve persecuting others who disagree with the dreams. I agree with you in the sense that "harmless"…"

"Totally agree, with what you have said, as someone raised without belief I spend a lot of time explaining to my friends the difference between what I see as atheism being without belief and anti-theism being against belief. This I think comes down…"
