RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
I'm an author - Contributing Editor for The American Rationalist, I write a regular column ("Dogma Watch") for American Atheist Magazine, and contribute regularly to Free Inquiry. I just published my first book, No Meek Messiah, and am working on a second edition which will include notable editors and publishers. - Michael Paulkovich, shamelessly self-promoting.

Hello everyone!

You can take the egotistically-fathomed dogmatic moral system you call what "should be" and shove it up your asshole for thinking it's applicable to anyone but yourself.

Okay.

I'm Beccs (short for Rebecca). I'm a 29 year old crazy chick from Australia currently living and working in New Zealand.

I don't drink enough, swear too much and am a recovered Catholic (16 years clean).

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Current Events of My Life in a Very Small Nutshell

My name is Andrea Noel Pearson. I was born into a faith filled, God fearing family and raised to believe that the Bible is the infallible word of the one true God and must never be questioned or doubted.
I recently resigned my position as Manager over my parents property management company and took some time off to contemplate my existence. During that time, I decided to (for the first time in my 36 years on this planet), read the Bible from cover to cover.
What I thought would be a spiritual blessing proved to be one of the two most traumatic experiences of my life (the other being my Father's suicide in 1998).
I'm taking my discovery one day at a time. Some days I regret having read the Old Testament - faith is after all, the laziest way to navigate through life. But most days I am glad to be free from the guilt over always disappointing a perfect and righteous God.
I don't know how to come out to my family and friends. I hope this website will assist by providing me sound advice from those who relate to my circumstance.
Thanks for reading.

Hey, welcome Smile Coming out... Most of my friends / relatives have found out by now but I only tell people on a need to know basis i.e. if they ask me or if I feel like telling them. It's *your* internal state, not anyone else's business Wink Your mileage may vary...

Hi,

I'm Terry 'Pete' Hanson from a tiny town in the darkest regions of North Dakota. I've been an atheist since sometime in 2011, but I can't quite place when. Not quite sure what else to say, but I guess I'll figure it out.

Pete
