Wow, an atheist in Laurel. Hi, I grew up in Laurel, but got married and moved to Tennessee about 10 yrs ago. Been divorced since February and hope to come back eventually. Most of my family lives in Laurel. My brother recently moved to Florida to pastor a church. Crazy how things turn out. Anyway, just wanted to say hi.
I try to drop subtle hints by being indifferent about god. She said she didnt know if i was a believer or non-believer so hopefully she'll figure it out. Your parents sound pretty accepting about your desicion. What made you not believe?
Thats a novel idea. I'll do it tommorow when I'm at a computer. But no, noone knows yet, my family is very religious. In fact, this morning my mom was mad because I didn't want to go to church and she told me quite plainly. "When you go find your own place do what you want, but as long as you stay here as for me and my house we worship the lord. AND YOU WILL WORSHIP THE LORD."
Thanks for the welcome! I agree, I joined Nexus so I could have others who share my beliefs. I've only just been able to go full blown atheist. I always felt inside even when I was little that God might not exsist. I feel so unburdened and happy that I let go of the god delusion thats been shoved down my throat.
You saw my comment? I saw all the other comments and thought for sure mine would have gone completely unnoticed. Anyways, I think I had stumbled across this place when I was browsing Google, that or it was and ad on a different site, I don't remember for certain.
