"Tantan, Many of us here are familiar with your situation. For example, I live right smack in the middle of Georgia, heavy born-again Baptist country. For methe hardest part is finding someone open minded enough tohonestly talk with. If you can find…"

"I am in complete sympathy with you. I was raised in a Catholic family. My mother, sister and I all sang in the choir, my mother guided people through communion, and we went to all the pot-lucks. I began to question my faith at the tender age of 13.…"

"Fables should be taught as fables, myths as myths, and miracles as poetic fantasies. To teach superstitions as truths is a most terrible thing. The child mind accepts and believes them, and only through great pain and perhaps tragedy can he be in…"

Hi.I stumbled upon this site and I am a Christian turning into an atheist. I am torn between believing and not believing because almost all around me believes in God. In fact I have a twin brother is the exact opposite of me. He is a Baptist (Born Again).It's really scary because I have not yet revealed it to anybody around me so I need some help to understand to get through all this. Thank You.See More
