It's nice to know I'm not crazy.

Well, not too crazy; as craziness is kinda relative.

RE: Did TTA change you, and if so, how?
In the short time I've been here I've gained a lot of confidence in my stance identifying myself as an atheist. I've also learned a load of information that would have required a lot more studying on my own, as well as seeing a lot of the bullshit pointed out in the bible without directly reading it word for word.

This place has also eased some of my frustration and sadness when I think about the fact that the majority of the folks in this country (US) zombie walk through their daily lives unquestionably believing that 'God/Yaweh' is real, Jesus is the way, that prayer actually has two fucks of an outcome when you beg for them on Facebook, and most importantly that if you don't believe that than you are the lunatic, terrorist Satan worshiper.

The Thinking Atheist has helped me puff out my chest a little further and say, "Fuck you believer boy! You've got the faith but I've got the facts."

RE: Did TTA change you, and if so, how?
I'd like to say that TTA has made me a more serious person and less arrogant, but to an extent that means also that I've lost my "smile", in a way(go ahead Rev, make a HBK joke if you must). If anyone here had met me without me knowing them properly, they would most likely call me an asshole. I've become smarter, but a lot more coldhearted and quiet in the process. Of course I could be wrong; I'm just not sure if the forum has effected me as a person better or worse. But I can't argue with that I've found some great friends via the place. Sorry if I seem like a party pooper.

RE: Did TTA change you, and if so, how?
TTA has helped me hone my BS detector. Often I would hear a religious person spout off something and my inner voice would call "bullshit" but never really looked at why....now I can identify why and point out the errors, which in turn helps me to teach my children and family to look more critically at claims. And it has given a boost in confidence to voice that criticism rather than just give it a free pass.

TTA has taught me all the different ways religion is pumped into our government, schools, shopping habits (no alcohol on Sunday), climate change, etc. Things that I didnt realize there was a connection are clear to me now. it poisons everything.

Ive learned more bible stories here than anywhere else. Ive probably learned a lot on other topics as well.

I have also gained friendship, not so lonely. This stay at home mom thing can suck too, i have been craving conversations with adults.

i am sure there is more, but thats all for now.
