My brother, sister, and mysef were brought up in a non-believing household. My father studied many different religions as an Atheist and tought us to think for ourselves and apply reason to everything we are told. I am married to a closet Atheist,lol. She doesn't like the bad stigma that comes along with the word Atheist. My 16 and 11 year old sons are both self appointed Atheists by their own choice. Much to the fault of their christian friends. Being the minority is tough sometimes but I don't regret it. Being an Atheist is a constant reminder of life's having an end and therefore reinforcing self disciplines to enjoy a saneness to the end.
Why are you here?
Because being the minority just gets lonely sometimes. It's occasionally nice to talk to other non-believers. Besides, most of the smartest people in the worldare Atheists.
The religion you left
Was never a part of one

BTW I have a lot of family in Fresno and Clovis. My grandparents on my mom's side lived in Sanger. I'm heading out there Dec 23rd - Jan 2nd to spend the holidays with family. It'll be my first Christmas out there and I'm looking forward to some milder temps instead of the June heat lol.
