Just made my first atheist video for YouTube! THANKS TO YOU!

   When I first came out as an atheist I came to A/N and met a great community. I used the moniker compelledunbeliever because I was afraid to let anyone know that I was an atheist. After interacting with this community I became more confident and began to mention that I was an atheist in my community. Then I began a atheist website to encourage atheist to come out in my community, I began to be more vocal on the web, responding to media etc, using my own name.

      I would like to thank Brother Richard, and everyone here for helping me to have the audacity to actually do a little more to help others that are questioning god. This was my first time attempting to make a video. I had to learn all the software( I still don't know squat), learn YouTube nuances, push myself to publish, though to me i look like a fool on camera, and build up the gumption to actually publish. It has been terrifying. Thank you again for helping me to have the confidence to make it happen!

Please check it out and let me know what you think!

Magical thinkers reading magical books teach others about their magic is a reality; respectful or not, it is true.

Yes, just a manufactured book, no ''disrespect'' involved.

Thank you Loren, My daughter actually suggested the "mic" drop. She said it could be "my thing," I thought it may be too disrespectful. Upon further thought, I came to the conclusion that I needed to show that "It was just a book" and It just might bring some attention to my videos in the future. When I was a fundamentalist, I believed that the Bible was somehow a magical book. It really is just the message I'm trying to get across... It's just a man made book.

Thank you Joan, for the suggestions, I try to do more reading than writing or creating to keep myself on my toes!

I celebrate your project and look forward to watching more of your work. May I suggest some reference material that may be useful to you in future videos?
