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

I could write a book but in summary, I first realized I was lied to my whole life when, in high school religion class, a priest admitted that the Noah's ark flood story was factually impossible (he has since been ex-communicated). It took over 20 years but after applying my critical thinking skills, my compartmentalized brain became whole again.

What do you hope to get out of this group?

I'm curious how other parents have raised their children in a believing culture. Although I know many people, I don't really know other atheists. I also love learning about other belief systems. The Mormons rock!

What do you feel you can offer the group?

Not really sure. My first born (do atheist do that?) or maybe just my participation. I love discussing those questions with no answers.


Reformed Catholic, single father of 2, working professional, wishing people would wake up!
