RE: How Did You Come to Sign Up to the Forum?
Discovered the website and become a reader of Seth's Blog at first, then used his resource area to discover a lot other great places that helped me through my deconversion. Then I started listening to the podcasts, and then finally joined the forums. Read a lot of literature along the way from the usual suspects, so all in all probably pretty similar to most people's stories.

germanyt and I worked together. I was a Christian and he was an atheist, but we got along, became friends, and had good discussions.

Our place of employment had a ridiculous internet filter, and TTA was one of the only places not blocked. He signed up then showed me the site.

After that, we just sort of just started posting at work. I enventually became more involved than him, and I guess the rest is history.

You said "y'all".

I'm slowly converting people.

I had listened to the podcast for a while, and just thought it would be a fun, informative community to be part of!

I left the Republican party in the 80's when they were inundated by the religious right.

I worked with several born again xians. They were some of the meanest people I've ever met.

After 9/11 I watched the parties of god play things out.

Got on YouTube and poked around in the atheist channels and found the TTA. After listening I signed up here. Erxy and KC were some of the first people to welcome me. Oddly, that didn't scare me away Smile

Honestly, I thought I would be the most vitriolic and aggressive poster here and I'd be booted out in a month tops. I was wrong.

Short story: I read Seth's book, "Deconverted" and signed up here when I was done.

Long story: picture ancient Greece on a warm midsummer's day...
