Welcome to TTA, Cindy.

It might help you in your quest to understand that atheism is not a belief system, merely the lack of belief in any deities.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I'm so happy to have found this forum!

With about 40 years of religion, working against me, I somehow figured out, on my own, that there really is no god, and that the bible is like Swiss cheese - full of holes.

I've spent the past 3 or 4 years detoxing from the baptist brainwashing. Having said that, my next dilemma was, where do I go from here??!! I still do not know. I'm also unsure of what I am now. I identify with atheists the most, but not sure that I even want a title to define my belief system either. Does that make sense?

But, for detoxing sake, I think you wicked, evil atheists Laughat, could be my best allies. With nearly everyone I know basically believing in the biblical god, in one form or another, I am pretty much alone now. The ones I've told do not understand what happened to me. Nothing "happened" to me. I just woke up. I'm much smarter than I gave myself credit for.

Thanks for allowing me to join!

Welcome to the Snake Pit, Cindy. Of course you don't have to label yourself anything; after all, all we are really talking anout here is that we don't believe in fairy tales. It's not our fault that so many people do. Most of them don't believe in Santa Claus or unicorns or the Tooth Fairy, but that doesn't change their lives or require a label, either.

Where do you go from here? Wherever you want to!

It's Special Pleadings all the way down!

Oh! That simple explanation does help, and gives me a different perspective, with regards to atheism. It's the lack of belief in any deities, rather than a belief system. Well then, that would be me. How about that!

Thank you Chas.

Thank you Taq. It is so nice to be able to talk with such open-minded people now.

She calls herself Kingschosen here, and pretends to be a man... it's kinda disturbing.

Its good to have you here Cindy. Look around, this place is a refuge from the insanity.
