RE: Hi I'm new and just out of the closet!
If they're alright with agnostics, just say you're agnostic atheist. You don't believe in god, but you make no claims of knowledge either way...

Unless you DO have knowledge of gods nonexistence, which would be fantastic.

Just like they could be agnostic theist (believing in god, but not claiming to know it exists) or gnostic theist (believing in god, and claiming to know it exists)

Welcome to the madhouse.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! I'll try to remember to bring donuts tomorrow!!! Except, tomorrow is promise to no one. Hehe!

Yes, that's a good idea to say I'm an agnostic atheist. That's actually, kind of true...

Well it's good that you came out on a Tuesday, because we all go back in the closet on weekends and this place is dead until Monday comes around again.

Welcome.

Be sure to barbecue kittens, record the NFL without their permission and rip the tags off of your mattress.

I just watched the Rebecca Vitsmun video (sniff, sniff...very touching) and noticed it was done by The Thinking Atheist, then a few moments later, I did a search on Google, "why atheism is not a religion" and came across this site again. I cracked up when I read the FAQ's. Then I noticed there is a forum, and here I am.

Anyhoot, about Rebecca, she's the one that inspired me to COME OUT!!! I'm also a resident of Oklahoma, and lost the roof of my home a week after the Moore, OK tornado. It hasn't been easy...this coming out. People are fine if you say you're an agnostic, but atheism is another ball game.

I don't understand why people act so offended by me being an atheist.

Rip the tags off small children? ... I'm actually sure they would appreciate that. Those tags always chaffed my neck when I was young.
