Hi!!
I am a 50 year old man from OK that had been a christian until making the leap this summer. I still work at a church part time as the head audio engineer. :/ I was a christian most of my life. Started looking around out of interest a few of months ago. Ran across a few interesting thoughts but the one that broke the camels back was Dr Richard Carrier and 'the Historicity of Jesus." Very exciting times yet scary too. I had no one or group to turn to. Having been told what the think by the bible and church I had fell to the place of partial non-thinker at best. Scared or not here I am living life and questioning everything. Haven't come out to anyone basically and don't know if I will to my family (I am divorced). Don't know if I will. They would be devastated and I don't want to cause unnecessary pain and anguish for them.

RE: Hi!!
Welcome. Look for atheist and secular humanist groups in your area. I'm in California and have seen groups mentioned on line.

Welcome, your story is a familiar one.

Pull up a stool and join in the conversation.

Thanks. For a while I felt alone in my situation.

Well, now you know that there are other sane (ish) people around!

Be welcome.
