Hello there, new here
Hi there,
I am a devout atheist/agnostic and I want to chat with like-minded people. Several of my friends and an aunt, that I am close to, are very Christian and it can be very frustrating. I am in the closet with them or at least I don't shout my views out.
I do not believe in a Supreme Being (atheist) but I believe in universal consciousness (agnostic of a higher power) which is why I describe myself as atheist/agnostic. I am saddened at how much religion influences the world and look forward to talking with others.

Welcome.

Just be careful, as I don't know of any 'devout' atheists here. Consider

Hello, welcome Smile

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

Welcome.

Please realize that we’ll eventually need to discuss “universal consciousness”. Drinking Beverage

G'day mate, and welcome to the forums. Smile

—You might like to start a new thread explaining what you mean by your belief in a "higher power", and how that proposed higher power is any different to the notion of imaginary gods.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.
