Hello all!
Hello! I am a secular humanist with Buddhist leanings but am most certainly not a theist. I live in the Deep South (United States) and feel isolated by my lack of Christian beliefs. I have been very open about not being a Christian but I have thinking about shoving myself into the atheist closet because I have lost so many friendships over it. I hope that this forum will help me feel less alone and like my beliefs are valid.

Welcome.

Interesting namename.

Mods, could you move this to the intro section?

RE: Hello all!
Living in the south is...interesting. I've been there.
Regardless of if you're atheist or theist and regardless of where you live, I think it's best not to talk about religion too much. Lest you become "that guy".
Anyways, it's nice to meet you and I hope you feel as welcomed here as I did Smile

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

I am from Louisiana! I haven't lived here my entire life, just from high school through college. I was born in Utah, moved to Washington, then TX (my first taste of the South) and now Louisiana, whose education system is a real joke. But, I have lived in the South for the majority of my life now. How long have you been a southerner?
