RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hi everyone! Smile

I'm 17 years old and I live in Texas with my very religious family. I became an atheist slowly between the ages of 13-14, and shortly afterwards I came to terms with being gay. I came out both as an atheist and gay at the same time about 6 months ago to my family. Up until very recently I have been blocked from visiting any sort of atheist material by my mom's parental controls, otherwise I probably would have found this website awhile ago (Still fighting to be allowed to own any sort of books on the subject though).

Anyway, I'm just here to hopefully learn about different people's beliefs and how to better defend my own. From the little bit of browsing I've done so far it seems like I won't be disappointed, so I can't wait to get started!

Welcome! I'm pretty new here, too. I think you'll find that the community is awesomely supportive.

Now that you have access to this group (and presumably other sites), you're going to find all of the resources you'll need to embrace freethinking.

Best of luck!

I look forward to reading the posts here, and perhaps leaving a few myself from time to time.

Welcome. Jump in - there are others who share your interests. Smile

I like to go on internet forums and talk to people about current events, but also the heavier stuff like religion and politics, if you would like to talk about such a thing. I like coffee. In fact I'm drinking some right now. I'm a man, lol almost forgot to make that clear.

No kidding?

So do I.

I live in Denham.

This is the first time I've ever joined a forum because m a big fan of TTA. next week's show is about faith healing fails. I have one I'd like to share. I'm trying to figure out how to get around on this website. How do I post a comment for the show?

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Heya. Had a rough life. Used to be homeless. Turns out I was really smart. Who knew? Anyway, seem to have completely alienated all of my loved ones. It would take a long time to explain. I may be crazy, but have a pretty compelling argument that I'm not. Compelling to me, at least. Don't know why I'm here other than it's a podcast I like and isn't Facebook.
