1% of people in my city don't believe in anything.

This is according to a telephone survey conducted in Cd. Juárez, Chihuahua, México.
A local newspaper interviewed 100 people over the phone and found out that 94 percent say they profess a specific religion; 5 percent believe in a higher power but aren't members of any religion; one person doesn't believe in anything.

Oh, how it bothers me when they say we don't believe in anything. According to my father we don't even believe in our own mothers...

Thanks for your note!!
It probably was a good thing that you were open with your girlfriend about your atheism. I think I would find it hard to date someone who believed in God(s).

Well... I do have someone to relate to. Me and my friend have just had enough of it. We were just talking about this yesterday.
And about Ciudad Juárez, this is actually a metropolitan area and it is on the "liberal" side compared to other cities in the south.
It even shares a border with El Paso, Texas, so I assume that contact with the U.S. might have helped to open our eyes a little bit more. But I guess it hasn't.
I've really never considered moving to another city within México but maybe the only option will be, as you say it, México City.

I used not to believe in anything, but I gave it up because it took to much effort.

I'm tempted to say that it is.
When you say you're an atheist, all that this means to them is that you just don't go to church, and if they already find this disturbing, imagine what will it be like to tell them what it really means to be an atheist.
