New young member here.
Greetings everyone. Im new here. Found the videos online and loved them. I am actually a very young atheist here . I am a teenager who actually is a closet atheist. I understand some of your guy's opinions on "closet atheist" but its just my situation. Although my parents are liberal Christians and have told me my right to believe what I want and explore what I believe. They know I read books such by Dawkins and such and encourage it. But its just what I want right now.

I would like to share some more of my story. Sorry I just have wanted to get this out. I have 2 main things I have to go through along with many other Atheist. 1. I live in the Bible-Belt just like The Thinking Atheist 2. Now this is the biggest problem. I am homeschooled through a program that is EXTREMELY fundamentalist , young-earth creationist Christians. I will not mention the name but some of you may already know of the program I am talking about. My parents dont agree with anything they teach (i.e. Anti-Evolution, young-earth) , but its mainly for the ease of it. Teaching through DVD's. They teach against obviously Evolution, and you know all the things. So I have to teach myself all these things via many sources, and of course my parents know of this and they are fine with it.

I am starting to think my parents are realizing that I dont believe. They dont make me go to Sunday School anymore, which they never made me but encouraged I go. They dont even drag to me to church or even make me say the prayer at dinner much anymore. So its kind of an ease .

I know its long but I just wanted to share my story. Looking forward to talking and meeting many of you on this forum. Thank!
