Greetings, Marina! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
First of all you're english is VERY good.....alot better than from some people who think they have a good command of it. I myself am not good with languages and I hear English is not an easy one to learn.
I'm sorry you had to go thru so much just to get to feel comfortable with who you are. I don't feel like some people do that all religion is evil. Some of it i understand in that it certainly is a powerful thing to have like minded people to hang out with and to be able to call family. I know a lady who can call anyone of her church members if she needed help with anything. It's nice to have that kind of extended family. And of course I don't believe in militant atheism.....you never get to make changes or learn to live with anyone by calling them names etc.
HI marina! Welcome! Can you elaborate a little more on your story of what led up to your breaking free? It would seem to me that you must be surrounded by theists who are very strong in their beliefs being from the south. I recall several years ago writing to some lady from the south who, once she heard I was an atheist, said she couldn' talk to me any more.....she was baptist I believe, I asked what about turning the other cheek here, and she went ballistic...there was certainly nothing heart warming about here thinking......
So what's it like down there? And congratulations on coming out!! Glad to have you aboard!
Hello Marina. Congratulations on breaking free. Welcome to Atheist Nexus with freethinkers who recognize religion for the superstition that it is----that gods are only fictions inside people's heads and religion is a grand deception.
