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?

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.

Thanks, but I am not interested in pushing a theist position otherwise I wouldn't be here. (Never could understand why people do that anyway). Thanks for the welcome.

Yep, me. Also from Slaap Stad Thumbsup Been away from the TTA forum for a while otherwise would've said hi earlier.

How's the de-conversion going? Please feel free to ask any questions that you might have and we'll do our best to answer them or point you to good sources.
