Wow, that's cool! Never met anyone from Georgia (only Armenians. So I've heard some of the jokes Wink).

Also, my mum loves those:

Really? well that's not surprising though. There are not too much atheists here either.
Thank you Heart

It's... kinda obscure Tongue Doxy is another word for prostitute... 'cos you can never have enough synonyms for prostitute.

I'm pretty much of a closet atheist, since I live in a pretty religious country where the majority of people are Christians and you can't really expect an adequate reaction to your lack of belief in god. It's mostly bs, like: atheists worship satan1!! and shit like that. Big Grin

Well, that's all for introduction Smile Sorry for grammar mistakes if there are any, English is not my first language.

And yet another welcome from an ex-orthodoxer (just read my screen name - that should cover it).
I envy you your youth; I did not move to a complete rejection of god until late in life. But the fact that I made the decision - I think - is more important than when. As I am now far closer to the end than the beginning, I can only wish you well and assure you that you are indeed correct.
Strengthen your "belief"....read as much as you can. If arguements with friends ensue, learn from them as much as you can, but hold your ground proudly for your stance is for reason, fact, and and thought. There are no finer virtues

Fixt.

And in my line of work I need synonyms for their parts, not the whole.

Anyway, I refuse to go there anymore. Being a minority, even a minority of one, doesn't make me insane (Orwell). Just very very bored....

Thank you. Indeed what matters is that you made decision, rather than when you made it. Though I'm glad that I stopped believing earlier than some other atheists. Now I view things completely differently.
Unfortunately I don't have atheist friends, atheism is a rare thing here. So I joined this forum to have discussions and learn more than I already know.

RE: Greetings from an ex orthodox christian!
To help Nebulæ because he haven't atheist friends in real life. I have an idea I share with you and him a link that I know.

Ex-christians.net is a forum dedicated to ex-Christians.
