Do you have a favorite freethought 'hero'?

I guess i don't really have heroes in this respect because it wasn't other people who truly led me to my enlightenment. It was only afterwards that I became familiar with the "popular" atheists.

What's the stupidest religious idea you've ever heard?

I guess the idea that an all-knowing God would send his only son (himself if you believe in the trinity) to go through the pain of life, to kill him self, to forgive you of the sins that his Father already commanded you not to disobey. I mean why go through all the drama? Why not just...I don't know...forgive the humans? And if Jesus knew this was going to happen and that he would shortly be in Heaven right afterwards, was it truly a sacrifice? Oh and the entire Noahs Ark story is right up there as well.

When did you first admit to being an atheist?

Within the past year.

Introduction

Hi everyone. So it is taking me a long time to admit that I am actually an atheist. Of course I went down that road from religion, to being agnostic, to determining that a deity is so unbelievable I might as well call myself an atheist
