Smile Intro
Hello Smile

I'm a 19-year-old girl living in India and I found this amazing site about a month ago while I started looking into atheist resources on the internet and stumbled upon the podcast on YouTube.
Raised in the Catholic faith, and a fundamentalist Catholic for a brief period of time, I finally broke away from religion about 2 years ago when I came to terms with the fact that I was gay. Making this transition from theist to atheist has been a gradual and rather difficult process, but that's a story for another day.
The people in my life, especially my parents, sister and extended family are deeply religious. I'm sorry to say that in all the years that I've live with them, I've never really felt close to them. I couldn't even talk about a day in school or college without them freaking out about something or another. So for obvious reasons, I still have not come out to them as gay or atheist. I am currently in college and I plan to do this only after I've got my degree and moved out. My friends, on the other hand, have been a lot more accepting of me, despite not sharing the same views. And for this, I am immensely grateful.
The internet is pretty much the only place where I can freely express myself, so finding this site was like a breath of fresh air. I'm thankful and I look forward to interacting with other members on here.

Welcome!

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Hello, Sharon.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

There are former Hindus born in India that are just as godless as former Muslims and Christians, here
