Hi
Hi im delano,

I have had a strongly religious upbrinigin, my parents and most of my family are jehovas witnessess and those that are not still like to say that it is the truth (god knows why heheh Hobo )

I have always been a sceptical person even as a kid, but i was trapped ofcourse by my parents and my upbringin hating gay people and abortion and such thiings.

But im happy that i turned around with help from my gf as well as having a baby and great in law's.

I now see things for what they are and am some what of an anti religion person. My parents and i are not really speaking that much but my dad often tries to convert me, and of course when i throw science in there its wrong and the scientists are not to be trusted unless they agree with them. Its quite crazy and i laugh about it after a while and after bein pissed off.

Welcome to TTA. It is interesting that you were able to resist the indoctrination.

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

Consider

I wonder why we don't have a "Should I Laugh Or Cry?" thread.

Maybe you can start one?

I have to say that it wasnt really resist as it was waking up years later, it has helpt me that i always was quite sceptical but only when i decided to stop. When i was a child and wend along with my parents my mind always felt as a burdon.Because even though i kind of believed it was always verry hard for me


And as a direct consequence of my parents belive i wasnt stimulated by them to get a proper education (this is the reason i only now graduated at 26 from college).

Welcome!

How can anyone become an atheist when we are all born with no beliefs in the first place? We are atheists because we were born this way.
