I'm horrible at keeping up with newer members; what kind of religious or non-religious background do you have, or had?

Started out as a baptist. After years of that I went to a non denomination church which was basically still baptist. I live in Americas Bible Belt. The entire side of my dads family are preachers, youth leaders, worship leaders. My mothers side are mostly worship leaders. I started leaning away when my home church treated me different when I started seeing an agnostic.

Unfortunate. The people moving away from you are either afraid or angry with you, based on what they've been taught all their lives. Not even sure if it matters to blame them for it.

However, it's good you can find refuge here. I hope you stay and pursue knowledge rather than fearing it, as many do.

Pretty sure OP meant "normal" theists. You're not one.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
