i never really told my mom how i became an athiest.
every once in awhile we'd talk about her belief in god and i always told her i didn't belive. she never got upset or anything and she didn't ask why.
the subject of it never comes up a lot in our household, so it doesn't seem to be a big deal.
it would be cool to talk to that teacher again though. i never did see him after that year was over.
yea, before i declared myself an atheist, i always went to church. i never actually was into the whole church thing, but i always believed everything in the bible because i was told that was the right thing.
after i thought about it, the bible made no sense. my teacher and i would always discuss what we believed in and he pointed me to the right direction.
i've been athiest since...let's see, fifth grade.
i think i was eleven.
my teacher was an athiest and we talked about why he thought there was no "god".
ever since then, i believed the same thing.
how about you?
