I was brought up in a non-believing household although my father studied many different religions. He taught us to think for ourselves and apply reason to everything we learn.

Hi Sean, Thanks for sharing about yourself. I feel your pain when it comes to living in country that is full of people that believe in a higher power. I LOVE to read that you and your family are Atheist. It gives me hope that I may someday have the same.

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.
