"That's what always struck me about his behavior.  Almost everything he says seems tailored to pander to the worst inclinations of the Republican base.  His abuse of women seems sincere."

Hi Joseph. Thanks for the comment. I have always been an atheist. I have been researching life extension this year. The other day I saw some shows (Vlogbrothers and Adam Ruins Death) that said we will probably not extend life and never live forever. I don't want to die and I don't know how to cope with that.

Hey Joseph, thanks for the comment a while ago. To get back to you, no there's not any atheist/agnostic sort of clubs at my high school. I was raised Catholic too, and there are many Catholics in the area, but my generation seems to have a lot more atheists/agnostics (maybe its just because were teenagers) but nevertheless, it is helpful to talk to some of my peers about it.

When I "came out" as an atheist at the age of 17, my parents kicked me out of the house.  I finished high school couch surfing.....

I walked away from my church, and never had contact with anyone again.  I was made to feel I was going to hell.

It took years to be able to talk to my family about it.  Now, both my sister and older brother are atheist, and are raising their kids to be free thinkers.

I do miss the fellowship and singing.  After seeing Sunday Assembly on 'Morgan Spurlock Inside Man', I'm determined to start an atheist church in Humboldt County!

Hi Joseph, thanks for letting me know about putting my street address in my profile by mistake. I've removed it now. X

Hey joseph, thank u for the welcome :) i hope we can share a lot of thoughts about atheist in the future. Yes u r right, Indonesia is known as religion country and i can say it's illegal to be an atheist. It's a must to put your religion in your ID card, and whenever you know new people, being friends, they'll ask u about your religion, most of them is not open minded when i told them i'm an atheist, so sometimes i dont bother tell them, i tell them i am a christian.
I haven't met any atheist in my country but i believe there's plenty here. :)

Hello Joseph and thank you for the welcome. You're right about Greenville,Sc not being a great place for atheist support. I actually graduated from a christian university here, North Greenville University, which is where I lost my faith halfway through being there. I still have a few friends from there but most of them are still Christian. It's hard to really open up when you're surrounded by them but I managed to tell a friend that I didn't believe any of it anymore, to which she replied, I'll pray for you. haha...I said you can do what you want. Prayer won't affect me. 

So, a bit about me, I grew up in a christian home. My dad was the pastor of a Baptist church. So I was brainwashed from birth to believe in the nonsense and not question anything. It wasn't until university that I began to think for myself and realise it is INDEED all nonsense, and started to look for things that did make sense in reality. I went through a depressed period and I still have bouts of depression, but I had a new peace of mind when I started to think for myself. 

Now my parents are missionaries in Vietnam, so they're far away and don't bother me, but my dad kind of knows now that--well to him I'm "rejecting God". but for me, I've given up that crutch.

The bigotry about us is really quite astounding for such an "enlightened" society.

Thanks for the welcome. I live on my own, so no worries about that. I just don't know how my mom would take it. She's an every Sunday Christian (southern baptist). I just don't know any other atheists in Nashville & just want to find ppl to talk to about my non-belief.

 I follow a Universal sense of dualism basically. I am of the belief that the Universe presents itself to each and every individual as they need it to. All is One basically.
