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...
Well hello, I'm Justin. Lets see, I'm a new atheist after questioning things for a few years. I'm a former bible college student, preachers kid and I'm looking for people that are like minded seeing that I live in the bible belt...making me pretty much the "devil"
Hi Justin, Congrats on your escape. My sympathy on your location. It's tough enough being an atheist here in Pa. Best wishes in your new happy life.
Hey Justin, welcome!
You'll probably find some great devil support here =)
I've always had a fondness for the devil....
Hey Justin, glad to meet you.
Welcome, Justin! This site is full of "devils", you'll be in good company :-) Do you have any other atheist friends where you live? Did you stop going to bible college because of your new atheism? How did tour family take your "deconversion"? Of course this is not an interrogation, just a way to open up dialog, so you answer if you wish.
I went to Catholic school when I was little but my family was mostly "culturally" Catholic; they did not even go to mess very often, maybe once a year; they believed in god but with a kind of "well, there has to be something out there, no?" kind of belief. I became an atheist while still in elementary school, basically the whole thing made no sense to me; but it was not a big deal in my family. I live in NYC, where religion is not very prevalent (or at least not very "in your face"; I cannot imagine what it must be like to be an atheist in the Bible Belt!
