New here
Hello! I am not new to Atheism, or TTA, but I finally decided to join the forum. I live in the deep south of the United States, in this area you don't come across fellow atheist. I am coming here in search of community, and maybe make some friends.

I wont waste your time with a long bio of me, hopefully with time I will get to know all of you!

I was raised in an extremely strict Independent Fundamental Baptist, King James only, Premillennial believing church. Salvation was only attainable by faith and repentance, and all other denominations and religions are going to hell because they do not correctly believe and repent.

When I was 15 or 16, I read through the entire Bible. This changed my life forever, after actually reading the Bible for myself, and seeing the horrendous acts, immorality, violence, and contradictions of the Bible, I could never get these out of my mind no matter how many explanations I had heard.

It took years, but after taking the time, and doing the research, and reading probably a dozen books, I came to fully realize what the truth was.

Probably the number one thing you will hear me say a lot here, is this: Read, read some more, and read again. Question everything!

I am excited to get to know everyone here, hopefully this will fill my need for community, and communication with like minded people!

Welcome. I’ve spent a lot of time in southern Alabama so I can empathize.
