Not sure that I would recommend acting the same way. I would so be tempted to say something reticulated regarding Hinduism, but don't go overboard with it Bowing.

Your Dad's being an ass. Just remember that fact, and that you are entitled to your own opinion, and do whatever it takes to get through the next little while. He'll get tired of acting like a twit eventually, one hopes...

RE: Closet Atheist? Not sure what to do
This is pretty off topic, but I just announced my atheism over Facebook and simultaneously someone posted a very long religious status about how it says nowhere in the bible that homosexuality is wrong. I almost commented with the line from Leviticus but restrained myself as somebody had died and that was what the post was about (he was homosexual and killed himself over it).

As daft as the statement is, the fact that people make these kinds of attempts at reinterpreting the Bible means that overall Christianity is becoming a much less harmful religion. Let the meme circulate... Smile

My friends are all christian and I fear I might lose them. Despite their beliefs they really are great people and very smart, which is infuriating. My family does not go to church but they believe in god. My biggest fear is my dad's reaction, if he goes as crazy as what i've heard on this website I have no idea what I would do, yet there is also a possibility I could convert him. I don't think he really believes, but is playing along because my mom does. My dad loves science and double majored in it, yet still clings to this faith. I am in a huge dilemma, or so it feels like. I can't afford to loose my friends, i'm too anti-social, but I'm exploding and I've only been a full atheist for a week! By the way, I'm 15 years old, thanks for reading and reply please.

I voted "yes, to everyone," but I would argue that you should not be in any hurry.
