Hello
Hello everyone, my name is Fernando and I just became a full fledged atheist. I was raised by a loving mother; she is a very conservative pentecostal, and was raised to believe in god. I can honestly say that in my youth (8-17), I was a true believer, and even during my twenties (22-28) I continued to believe. I had a patch during my thirties where I began to doubt, but due to my family, I just semi-believed. By the age of 38, I could no longer really believe, but I kept the sham going. Now at 44, I let people know' "I don't believe in god." It has been extremely liberating. My wife is still a believer, well, one of those believers that goes to church on Sunday. She doesn't read the bible, pray, or pay tithes on a regular basis.

Well, I hope to meet other great people and be able to interact with others on this board. Have a great day everyone. Thumbsup

Hello
Welcome.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Mikhail Bakunin.
