What factors influenced you to emerge as a non-believer in a believing society?

I've been a non-believer since early childhood, despite being raised in a church-going family, the catechism indoctrination, and confirmation into the Catholic Church. None of it made sense to me, especially the virgin birth story. I walked away from that mythology after my 18th birthday. At some point in the past 10 years, I realized that it was OK to consider myself an Atheist. Openly declaring to the world that I was a non-believer was borne out of the need to push back against an increasingly non-secular society. I really don’t want to hear your proclamation of love for your imaginary friend, and you shouldn't force this delusion on me.

What do you hope to get out of this group?

My goal is to meet and socialize with like-minded people.

What do you feel you can offer the group?

I'm a good listener, and I make a mean cherry pie. Actually, I'm pretty damn good at baking, and cooking in general. Lamb of god anyone?


Atheist, boring engineer type, quantity: 1
