Florian?! the same Florian that started the Evil God Bible study way back when? you hide too? Shame. I am a fan though. When are you going to do more Evil God episodes? I would love it if i got a heads up on that!
Hey Daniel. Left you a note on your wordpress site. More people need to connect to our stories of life after faith. Education is the key. I prefer Freethinker to Atheist, but it's about finding a natural peace and path. See you at http://afterfaith.wordpress.com.
Well, in fairness, "raised atheist" is a bit of a contradiction in terms. My father considers himself a strong atheist and my mother is an atheist-leaning agnostic.
The entire concept of faith in my youth only came up when I started showing interest in learning what everyone was else going on about. Santa, the easter bunny, tooth fairy, god/jesus (etc) were never part of my upbringing.
Coincidentally, I've stopped by your blog from time to time in the past, before I had one of my own. Being more or less raised atheist I find it interesting to learn about those that came to atheism from faith.
Joan and I are out in San Francisco for a few days; talk about fresh air! But we have a pretty active atheist meetup in Cincinnati, that meets at a place that's a comfortable walk from our house, and most of our friends now are atheists, and our kids have married atheists (one a third generation atheist). So it probably looks more hopeful to me than it really is.
Great website! It's a pleasure to meet, if only virtually, those who share a common history with myself. It's a continual comfort to know I'm not alone in my walk away from faith. Thanks for your comment.
