Yes, I don't think religion fosters free or sufficiently rational thought. On the contrary, you are told what to believe, and the ideas are usually not well-reasoned because they are inherently not based on facts.
I'd like to hear the opinions, perspectives, and stories of new, thoughtful people.
I grew up as the only atheist in a highly Catholic family, and I attended religious schools from 1st grade to college. It is refreshing to be in the company of other atheists.
