Unfortunately my family is very conservative and my Uncle is a pastor. I feel lied to scared and brainwashed. Hopefully I can get more information and some of my questions answered by joining this forum. I really need a safe place to write about my current feelings regarding my faith without being judged.

Welcome to TTA. There's plenty of information to be had here.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hello. I'm a young adult living in Ohio in the United States. My job here is to take care of the mentally and physically handicapped. I was raised in a non-denominational church and am the only Atheist member of my family. It's nice to meet you all. I hope to stick around for some time to come but forums and I have never really clicked before (I always forget about them). Hopefully this time it will be different.

Smoke pan every day!

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hello fellow atheists! I have finally made it to the forums after listening to the podcast for a year now!
I am a deConverted evangelical of 3 years now living in Portland, Oregon. I whole-heartedly thought that I would be a missionary in Africa by now but, alas, my church kicked my ass out (when they found out that I was gay) and after almost ending my life, my secular friends picked me up and showed me that there was a great life out here on a great planet. (This is obviously a very short version of my story).
Anyways! I am 33 and living here in the beautiful PacNW with my husband and life is great!
Today's podcast hit me hard with the talk of street epistemology since until a few years ago I was actively street preaching on Friday nights with my church in the streets of my my [then] hometown of St Petersburg, Fl. I stared having flashbacks but this got me excited that there may be a way to make up for all those nights of myth preaching with Socratic reasoning.

I can't wait to explore the boards here (it reminds me of the old boards I used to be active on on a gay christian website long ago).

Cheers!

Ryan
