I was looking for a place to introduce myself, and realized that there was no "one thread" for members to do so. I thought I would start one.

I'm Paul. I am a 31 y/o male stationed with the Army in South Korea. I have been an Atheist all my life, I was raised as one. I run a small blog and I am getting ready to leave the Army.

I am an open atheist, there's no hiding for me, I tell other people about Atheism and why I choose to be one. But I try very hard not to be pushy about it.

Anyone else?

Hi I'm a 46 year old Irish father of two kids living in holland. Became an athiest when I was 14, my older brother was reading from a paperback called "God drives a flying saucer" with some wierd passages from the bible, so I said the bible does'nt have that rubbish in it, and picked up the bible to prove him wrong - and wham!- being an atheist ever since

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hi, I am a 43 year old wife and mother of a 15 year old daughter and 10 year old son.
I live in a suburb of Columbus, Ohio and work as a respiratory therapist.

I was raised in a catholic family in Cleveland but my Dad has always been very interested in science and encouraged it in me. I didn't even realize there were people who chose not to believe in evolution until I was an adult! We weren't super religious and by the time I was in my late teens I realized I disagreed with most of what the catholic church said and I really haven't been back. I called myself a lapsed catholic and I considered it more a part of my heritage than a personal belief.
I married a man who was basically raised without religion and we've been non-religious ever since.
The funny thing is it wasn't until earlier this year that I really started thinking about the whole "god" thing and realized I was indeed an atheist. Even in my non-religious life there was sort of a stigma attached to that moniker. I bet there are a lot more people out there who are still like I was. The religions have done a good job making atheism a distasteful word.
But the reality is so much better than the delusions they push on everyone.

So I'm glad to be here and I hope I can contribute something useful to this forum,
Ursula

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
I guess I'll repost my introduction here:

Quote:Hey, my name is Jack. I'm 15 and from Long Island in New York. I've been an atheist for two years. I can't say my family has been against it, nor have they been supportive, just baffled, I guess. It's something that's a big part of me, and being an atheist is also something I'm immensely proud of. I feel so much happier since coming out as an atheist, especially since God never crossed my mind even when I was a Jew. I didn't question His existence, I just didn't care.

I'm also a huge video game and movie geek. I listen to all types of music, and I'm an approachable and friendly person who doesn't like to shove his ideals down people's throats.

Nice to meet you, and I LOVE your Gamertag. I'm angry at you for thinking of it before me. I'll add you. I'm "teh j00theist" (kind of like Jewtheist a.k.a. Jew turned atheist).
