I was raised in the Mormon faith and married a Mormon, but I was always "that woman" in the congregation who questioned the men in charge, and could never quite accept the pat answers given regarding the church's history on polygamy and racism. Looking back now, I realize I never believed, but it was what I knew, so to avoid breaking my mother's heart, I went through the motions. However, over the past few years I have opted to live my own life and have chosen reason and logic over living a life I don't want. Finally, I'm at peace with myself.
Of course, it has come at a price - loss of community, strained relationship with family members, feeling unable to share some of my thoughts and experiences with people who used to be my closest friends. But, I'm working towards creating a new community for myself and living an authentic life.
Free at last!

Wow Mullgal, sounds like you've been through quite a bit and I'm glad you found your way here. We're an international crowd and so a pretty diverse bunch... I'm sure you'll find something interesting to think about and maybe respond to. I have to admit, I probably do more reading then posting; it's quite satisfying when there's just so much to learn in a small handful of people and conversations.
I think people do create their own community.

Welcome to the forum. Smile

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
I'm a "noob" as it's been called to the forum. I'm a long time listener of TTA podcasts and have listened since from what I understand is almost the begining in 2010. I was a Jesus freak when I was a teen and have only come out of religion the past few years, but was often a skeptic. I'm from Alberta Canada which for those who dont know is similar to being in Texas as far as believers go.

Max, 42, from Albuquerque, New Mexico..I recently found this site, and thoroughly enjoy it.. I grew up in the Methodist church, and came to my senses in my mid to late 20's..At that point I just quit going to church and never gave religion another thought..it wasn't until the last 5- 10 years that I started getting involved and doing more research on atheism and refuting the believers..anyway, I'm glad I found you all..I just finished reading Deconverted, and what a fantastic book..

I'm Kaitlin, 15, I'm a high school student attending catholic school. I used to be mindlessly catholic myself, but as I began catholic school last year, I slowly transitioned from Christian to deist to agnostic to atheist.

I'm a closet atheist... My family's catholic. I come here for an outlet, and mainly to know that I'm not alone. Glad to be here.

Shy Hello Kaitlin.. Welcome here,, i am new here too.. i am hope i can learn something new in here.. Smile

Hey, that's so cool! You're the second person I know (well, I don't really know you, but...) from Timor Leste. The other one was also living in New Zealand (or maybe Australia, I forget).

Anyway, bem vindo (I'm guessing you do speak Portuguese?). If not - welcome and I hope you enjoy your stay Smile

My name is Chad, I am a 25 year old college graduate. I live in Midland, Ontario Canada. I was 18 years old when I found out that questioning your faith was an option.

The person who is certain, and who claims divine warrant for his certainty, belongs now to the infancy of our species.

Hey Max! I'm also from Albuquerque, and I also grew up in the Methodist church. Welcome!

I agree; Deconverted was really good.
