Greets, Joan, and welcome to Atheist Nexus. Don't feel bad about taking your time getting here. Many of us (yours truly included!) went the long way around before we realized that god is indeed nothing more than an absurd notion. The point is that you got here and we're glad you did!
Please have a look around, and if there's anything we can do to help, give a shout!
