RE: Do you pretend?
I do have to pretend because my entire family is hardcore fundamentalist Christians. They think I still go to church even though I try to be as vague about it as possible. I haven't been to church in about a year and a half. I pretty much just lie to them because I really don't want to even get into it with them about it. They will never understand so there's no point.

If that isn't a perfect illustration of theist/atheist relations I don't know what is.

I don't think I could make it through a day without some form of deception in regards to what is going on in my head vs the image I want/need society to maintain of me. Religion is just one example. And if everyone were truly being honest with themselves, I think they'd have to admit to putting on a variety of masks depending on the social identity most relevant to their situation.
