"Welcome Misha. Glad you're here, and found a little corner of sanity.
As to you former church, I've never attended a mega-church. Nor, I might add, do I have any intention of ever setting foot in one. However, they have always struck me as…"
"Welcome, and nice to meet you, Misha.

Hi, I'm Misha and I've always been a bit of an analytic cynic regarding most things in life. (But I still know how to have fun!) So basically, once I learned I could think for myself, I realized I was an atheist. Before that, I attended several non-denominational churches with my parents. I was 'saved' and baptized when I was 10, after our preacher's service convinced me one day that I couldn't be a good Christian (read: person) if I wasn't 'saved'. And now I find myself here at Atheist Nexus, 27 years old and an Atheist, looking for new friends and stimulating conversation. =)
