Greetings from South Africa
Hi all,

Greetings from Cape Town, South Africa. I am a theist (or at least I think I am still) and I am in the middle of being de-converted (I think that is what you call it).

To the Thinking Atheist, thank you for your podcasts which I have found to be very interesting.

Is there anyone else here from South Africa?

Hello and welcome. I am a "never been theist" so I don't know much about the deconversion process but plenty of folks here have and will be happy to welcome you with some experience on their side.

Oh, and I'm from Oklahoma, USA. It's sucks here on the religious front but it's getting better. Smile

Welcome!

Aweh!

Wow South Africa welcome to the discussion.

It's real easy to find out if you're a Theist or an Atheist.

If I asked you "Do you believe in Gods?" how would you respond?

If you answered no or not very likely. Congratulations you're an Atheist!

Now you can also be an Agnostic Theist and say you don't know if there's a god but believe that there is. Or you can be an Agnostic Atheist and say your don't know if there's a god but don't believe there is.

The key word is belief. I was raised roman Catholic, left the faith in my early 20's but still went on believing in God. It's not really an over night process in the early days there where moments where I was afraid of being smited. But that feeling dose fade. I 5 years in and now look back at those thoughts as silly.

Don't be afraid to ask question. You may run into many people on the defense, but a good number (not all) of the theists that come here merely want to push their beliefs and threats on the people here.
