It was an interesting sort of experience, I was just online (I think it was gaiaonline come to think of it) on a forum website much like this, and somebody had posted something about God. I don't quite remember the posting, but the subject did get on my mind, and as I went further down I read somebody post that they were an antheist (it was a misspelling, I didn't know at that age for it was the first time I saw the word), somebody who doesn't believe in God. I realized that it pretty much described my beliefs.

I wasn't necessarily a closet atheist, but nobody had known till I hit age 12 or 13. Eventually I made friends with some Mormons and my best friend at the time was Agnostic, I told them about my disbelief, and went to church with them for a while, and that is when I really experienced my first challenge. Well it was actually on the street, a couple of Mormons on bikes kept trying to talk to me, and tried to convert me when I was walking home. I started researching, learning, and realizing the destructive nature of those sorts of beliefs.

Eventually my parents found out, I was 13 at the time, and they were a bit in shock, we didn't talk about it until after my very religious half-sister had come to town, she started talking and my dad made a comment which particularly disturbed me "Atheists should have a little devil on their grave, pointing and laughing."

From then, I'd occasionally get into arguments with my, which led into a bit of understanding, and I am convinced he is no longer a Christian at this point in time. He still holds the notion that "you have to believe in something" but he shows no regard for Christianity whatsoever. My mother claimed she had made mistake raising me outside of church, and my half sister wanted to take me away for a weekend and "talk" to me, I was terrified, she also said "it's not your fault you were raised wrong." We don't talk much now.
Ahh... Sorry for not responding... Thanks for sharing! Also Thank you for your advice on the other forum thread.

I am glad that there are others who fell the same pain as all others do. I just never really got why people tend to become so violent at the thought of something like being atheists. Its like they become something you would never have thought to exist. Both in faimlys and some friends.

Hah please excuse my poor grammar/spelling but I did mean that it is very surprising to see how people react at the slightest doubt of their belief. I am glad that most of my friends had little problem with what I told them but I can't say the same for family. Its really ironic I can be more christian then them at times when I don't even believe in god which goes down the line of doing whats right because its the right thing to do NOT because someone told me to.

Ha! Yeah I certainly know what it's like to experience that feeling.

Sorry I haven't responded to your first post, I usually try to be cordial with all of the Atheist Teenagers on this forum.
