Hello from Sydney!
Hello everyone!
My name is Jessica and I'm from Sydney, Australia.
It's such a relief to post here to like minded people.
I only recently realised God doesn't exist, just a week ago. And what a breakthrough that was. I've never been as happy with a mindset in my life as I am now.

It's nice to see so many atheists that have broken free from different religious upbringings. My story is nothing new: parents born in Iraq, raised a Catholic Christian, and up until now, have been attending church weekly.

I'll be posting for advice soon about coming out to my conservative Christian boyfriend, and hope you all can help me.

Thanks everyone!
Jess.

Maybe not "new", but that's certainly a bit out of the ordinary!

G'day and welcome Jessica, I hope you find your stay here to be enlightening and informative.

... And thank you for coincidentally allowing me to retain the title of the only Adelaidian on the forum.

RE: Hello from Sydney!
Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. I really appreciate it. Would any of you happen to know about confirmation bias and other mind delusions and fallacies?

RE: Hello from Sydney!
Some of us do, no doubt... though you might need to ask some more specific questions. Did you come across this site by accident or have you discovered a few podcasts and youtube channels on your way here?

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Hey Hafnof! I was looking specifically for atheist forums of course. Just googled it. So good to talk to like minded people.
