As many of you who read my introduction already know I am an atheist, and 17. Many of my peers believe that at the age of 17, I am too young to make such a decision. To which I respond, "If I am too young to decide there is no god, than aren't you too young to decide there is one?" This is the moment when they get quiet and just kind of stare at me for a short while before walking away accepting defeat. My point is that I believe that an individual is NEVER too young to decide whether or not they believe in a god or gods. Even if someone decides at a young age to become atheist I can't fully expect them to stay atheist. When I was 12 I decided I wanted to be atheist only to fall back into Christianity a couple months later.
I then became atheist again at the age of 15 and have been since then. Honestly, I cannot see myself ever believing in the existence of a god again. The idea of a god just seems too absurd to me and I do not see that changing. Anyway, I have a Harmonica sitting next to me begging to be played and i'm hungry. I don't know who, if anyone at all will read my blog, but I will continue to post off and on anyway with anything that might be on my mind. I thank anyone who does take the time to read this short excerpt from my thoughts.
