Who are you, what brought you here, where are you coming from, when were you made aware of AU, why did you decide to join...
I agree Henrik we must be careful not to lump all religions together as one. Some are obviously worse than others
Born and raised in Texas. Resisted heavy and militant indoctrination my entire life. Even as a child the problem of theodicy gave me doubts as well as having apeirophobia. I don't know a single self-proclaimed atheist in person and I'm looking forward to meeting some!
True Atheists are out there - by that I mean people who weren't raised with religious beliefs or dogma.
