Chris commented on Vikki Garland's blog post 'Being raised christian with a rational mind'
"I agree that the very best book a rational person can read to cure them of theistic faith is their scripture. I also agree that life without the comfort of a faith is also life without the dread of the unknown. The unknown is still there, obviously,…"

Vikki Garland replied to Sophie's discussion 'Nipples/breasts? Why so Taboo?'
"I don't really feel they would be on "display" anyway. People don't get angry when they see a woman's thigh the way the world used to. We're evolving, making us cover our bodies can make people feel that nakedness is…"

Vikki Garland commented on Doug Reardon's blog post 'Male sexism'
"Well there is a movement called sexpositive I think you'd be interested in. It contains a group of people who state that any sex is okay as long as its between two(or any number of) consenting adults. They also promote safe sex and teach people…"

"I don't think they're a huge deal, I think the human body is beautiful and shouldn't have to be covered. But I don't want to be labeled a sex offender.. Women are supposed to be contained according to scripture and almost all of…"

"That's so great that you mentioned DC Talk, and Audio Adrenaline, that is exactly what I listened to growing up. Even now without faith I feel nostalgia about them, crazily enough. Isn't it funny that it was actually reading the bible that…"

Being raised christian with a rational mind

Ever since I was born my parents have always told me there was a god but no santa clause or tooth fairy. I didn't understand how they expected me to understand why god was invisible and never speaking up for himself. It was hard for me, but I believed with all my might and became what you'd call a hardcore christian.

About Me:
I am a 20 year old female who is happily married and freed from fear. I was born into a religious household, my dad is a former pastor and my mom was heartbroken when I told them I was an atheist. For years I questioned my faith and the bible trying to find out all I could. Getting answers from the bible can only get you so far, it doesn't grow and there is no hope for change. In science I found my answers and it gives me hope.
My husband and I are both atheists and we live a full and happy life, the world is bigger and more beautiful since becoming an atheist.

Why are you here?
Looking forward to making some friends with you guys, atheists are very looked down upon here in my city and it's exciting that there are so many out there :)

Why you left your religion.
God is not real, but if he was, he shouldn't be worshiped
