John replied to Jenni Manwaring's discussion When to start teaching Atheism to your kids in the group Parenting Little Heathens
"As someone who was never taught theism and who has an Atheistic son, all I can say is that atheism is born in us. Much like any belief system, belief in a God has to be taught. I have always dealt with my son openly and honestly, and asked him for…"

John replied to Jezzy's discussion Utahn Life in the group Utah godless. Got Jesus Jammies?
"I moved to Utah in 2007 after living in six states and two other countries. I thought I could handle it all. I lived above a funeral home in the Bluegrass region of KY, in a TINY studio on Tokyo, in San Francisco, in the Over-The-Rhine district in…"

Hi John,

I don't know if the group got anything organized to go the show show, but I do have a friend in it. Say hi to Chelsea for me at least!

Well I guess when you put it that way it makes sense. The more similar your ideas are to those of the people surrounding you, the more likely you are to conform subconsciously. Wow. I had never thought about it that way.

Yes, I was raised as a strict mormon, and remained so until after the mission. The choice to go to BYU was mostly financial however. Even when I was a believer I thought the area might be a little too closed minded, and lacking in diversity. I don't regret my decision, mostly because of the money I've been able to save, and the great education I got.

So what is it like for your kids in the school system? I imagine that might be a little interesting, although kids tend to be more accepting than adults.

An atheist living in Provo by choice? strange. I'm here at the Y, but I'm out of here in a month. What made you want to stay here? and by the way, no matter what they call UVU I will still call it UVSC.
