Welcome all new members. I'm new here myself. I'm unsubbing this thread now as I have a lot of notes coming in and finding less time to address them all.

Hi all,

I first heard of Seth and TTA by listening to an interview of him on an AHA Humanist Hour podcast. I had just stumbled onto them, and was somehow shocked to hear other people who think the same way I do. Smile I am incredibly encouraged to hear and see these complicated issues being fleshed out in a humanist/atheist light.

I was born a fourth-generation Oneness Apostolic/Pentecostal (a long-haired skirt girl), and I escaped from that religion and community at the age of 17. That particular doctrine was passed through my maternal line, and I have zero contact with my mother at this point. (I'm 25 now, and do have a somewhat-relationship with my maternal grandmother.) From 17 to around 22, I lived my life with blinders on where religion was concerned. When I finally began to find solid ground for my own core beliefs and morals, I became more comfortable with both reaching out and speaking out.

I have also come to terms with the fact that some facets of my upbringing just can't be resolved, and proselytizing is one of them. I was indoctrinated to 'save the world,' and that drive is definitely still there. The only difference is now I'm working to do it in a different way. I came to this forum because at the moment my only medium of expressing these feelings is Facebook - where half or more of my friends are Apo/Pent and another fourth don't know/don't care about my background and why these issues are so important to me.

I'm really looking forward to reading and discussing. Heavy on my heart at the moment are the long-lasting psychological effects of extreme religion on children. I'm trying to really think through all the various ways I was emotionally manipulated and therefore harmed as a child and young adult, and the way that those items are still influencing my life today. From my perspective, it is borderline child abuse.

Whew, sorry for the book. I'll go back to lurking now Smile

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hello, my name is Katelyn, but I usually go by Katie. I am a bit of a late bloomer, I started in a softer approach calling myself agnostic around 2 years ago. I eventually came to the conclusion that I should identify as an atheist given made more sense. I didn't drop the agnostic part. I recently picked up listening to The Thinking Atheist podcasts on youtube and decided I would like to join this community to be around more like minds. You see I am a single atheist in a family full of Christians, same with many of my friends as well. I am sure this is fairly common, so I imagine many can empathize. Luckily I can say that thus far nobody has turned their backs on me, but I often get challenged and then told to stop trying to change their beliefs when they don't like the answer I give. Plenty of "weapons grade facepalms" in my life. Anyway glad to be here and hope I am a good fit.
