HI. I'm new here.
I don't have much time to introduce myself. I'm at work. I'm Ed. I live in Michigan. I started calling myself an atheist a couple of years ago. I have a lot of religious family members. All Christians to some degree. I have one cousin is can talk to but mostly I keep it to myself. Other family members know I'm an atheist but it is usually an avoided conversation. My wife is also Christian. She really avoids any conversation about religion.
Anyways, I'll look around the forums here. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone.

Welcome!

You can be a religious atheist. That will teach 'em.

RE: HI. I'm new here.
My Beloved is also a Christian. We recently had our second child together. Our first son is 9.

However, I have the advantage in that she's an evolutionary biologist, and is as disgusted with fundamentalism as I am.

I definitely feel your pain, as both my family and hers are extremely religious.

Welcome to the forum. Hope we can provide the escape from the madness that you'll need to retain some sanity. Smile

RE: HI. I'm new here.
Welcome, Ed. There is a thread for deconversion stories if you are interested in sharing tales of your journey to the light of reason.

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