Hi!
Hi, I'm Lunablu. I'm from south-central Indiana. Around age 12, I was agnostic with atheistic leanings and by the time I was 22, totally atheist in my views on religion. It was a lot of studying and "soul searching" that brought me to atheism.
I find it heartening that, at 52, there is a lot more openness about being atheist/non-religious, but there's still a long way to go.

RE: Hi!
Thanks for the welcome!!! It's nice to have a community where you can be open in what you say and think. I can't really say I've lost many friends over my atheism, more a loss of their respect, and a gaining of their pity. I've had about 60% of my Facebook friends unfollow me and a few have deleted me. They don't hold with the view that social media is a great platform for social change, so my irreverent and political posts didn't sit too well with them. Well, that, and the fact that I have a hard time not pointing out bullshit and/or asking questions no one seems inclined to answer.

Welcome and carry on with irreverence. Thumbsup
