Moving Forward in a post-religious world

Hi Jason, I read your post in the Freedom from Fundamental Christianity. I'm glad you had the same 'free' feeling after giving up the belief in a higher being. It was such an incredible experience to finally feel free! Congratulations and welcome to A/N! We have awesome members and great discussions, so please enjoy your time here :)
