Freethinking pastor's wife
Trying to come to grips with life without god and church while being married to a pastor. I am the only atheist I know...lol.
I am 48, mother of two, saved for 21 yrs, realized I no longer believed last October and came out to my husband around March. He thinks I am just going through a midlife thing. Once you discover the truth.....you just can't go back!!!

Welcome!

Yes, I don't see how one can go back and believe things one knows to be wrong.

Welcome to the forum!

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.

Welcome. Too bad you're not the wife of a freethinking pastor. Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
