Over the last 2 years, I've read more and more atheist/humanist books as well as listened to quite a few podcasts. I've recently come out to my Christian family as an atheist which, at best, disappoints them and, at worst, makes them concerned for my immortal soul. I would now consider myself a humanist who wants/needs to learn more about how to deprogram myself from religion.

Good to meet you, EC. Looks like you'll fit right in.

Thanks for the welcome, all. This looks like a good-sized forum. If anyone can point me to a few resources on dealing with a believing spouse, I would sure appreciate it. And where are the restrooms? Smile

I would recommend looking over past threads here and seeing if any advice given to other people with the same problems would work for you.


If you want information about religion , Christianity etc. I recommend goodwithoutgod's thread here or the Informational Resource Library here

Hi all. I am a 57 yr old woman from Queensland, Australia. I've only just discovered TTA recently and it has and will change my life.
I was raised a Seventh Day Adventist going to church schools most of my childhood.
I work on the Aged Care Health area and spend a lot of time on the road, listening to the podcasts. Looking forward to some cool discussions on here.

We have some pretty cool Aussies, here. My respect for the continent Down Under has gone way up since I joined TTA in June! Welcome to TTA, Ex!

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
My name is craftyandy. Artist writer filmer and performer. I lost my belief in god at age 22 when I finally started asking the important questions regarding god and the bible. The creationists have only their selves to blame that I got smart about it. Currently I lived married to my husband in ohio at 29.

I go under the name on deviantart and youtube as rotteneggcreations. I make art and videos on a variety of subjects but my political and religois channel is under the name. LEMUR TALKS

Here is the latest video
Perry Stone and the waltz of stupid to benny hill.

Nice display of people talking in tongues. I've met some people who do that.... I didn't know what to say in response to them. =) Welcome to the forum.
