I was raised surrounded by Christianity. I was a creationist and a fundamentalist. Overcoming that faith was the most challenging and yet most liberating experience of my life to date. I became an atheist as a result of applying scepticism to the Bible. I found that since the Bible did not provide an accurate depiction of reality, neither had it any basis in doing so on the nature or existence of god.
Meet fellow atheists, make friends outside of my former religious circles, be active and outspoken for secularism. Religious groups occupy the vast majority of public opinion so I want to join a group that presents the alternative view.
I found this group on Facebook.
Science lover at 9. Baptised Catholic at 10. Taken under the wing of an editor of Answers in Genesis, spoon-fed creationism at 13. Prophesied over at 14. High school soldier of Christ at 16. Would be theologian at 18. Atheist since 20.
