RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Salutations everyone!

It has taken at least eight years for me to deconvert from religion to atheism. It's like getting clean from drug and/or alcohol addiction. I started in the "church of Christ" sect, and had stints in Unitarian Universalism, New Age, and Catholicism. Now I have no desire to go back for any more stints.
Glad to be here.

God is a personification of who we are, what we wish to be, and that which we do not understand.

Wow! That took you a while. 3-week detox is sufficient for most. Wink

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hey, brand new here and to... well... everything. I don't' know what I am anymore. I was raised LDS (Mormon) where my family dates back to the foundations of the church. I started researching the history of the LDS church, found a bunch of crap I didn't know about let alone agree with. From there I started to doubt everything along religious lines.

Just a few days ago, when life got extremely hard, I started to pray out of habit and I realized I didn't believe anyone was listening. That was so hard to feel all at once. I knew I was starting to lean in that direction, but to have it all come crashing down on me at once was so hard.

This is what has caused me to come searching for like minded people, which are hard to find here in Utah. I need to know I am not alone and maybe some guidance as to where to go from here.

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
To put it bluntly, there is nowhere to go from here.
You no longer have an end destination.
Liberating no?
If you Feel like doing something you can. Just weigh the pros and cons. Chances are you'll need time to get your sea legs. This is as good a place as any to do that.
Traverse the forum, ask questions and know that the biggest thing you lose is community, and that can be found elsewhere.

Hola I am Joe Honaker, and I am a long time atheist. I recently stumbled across your forums in online, and I thought I would come take a look.

Ello, I am a random 16 year old from Wisconsin who is writing the new word of god, the Bohquanita! I am also reading the bible and I am quite freaked about Genesis, and the daughters having sex with their father.
