Heart Thoughts From a Southern Belle
Living in Georgia and being atheist definitely do not go hand in hand. Especially only being 16 and going to the high school located right smack-dab in the middle of HickTown, USA. I get looks of disbelief and right near fear when I tell people I do not believe in a God. They aren't used to people being open about it. But then they get to know me. I believe I show the people around me that not all atheists are scary, horrible witches and warlocks. That we don't worship the devil or sacrifice animals or eat babies. I like to show that, contrary to popular belief, being an atheist doesn't make me any different than anyone else. Other than getting more beauty sleep on Sunday mornings. Heart

You don't eat babies? And you call yourself an atheist? Unbelievable!

Welcome to the forums!

Showing the masses that we are all still very caring and compassionate people is something we all need to work on. Sometimes we come across as being just as judgmental as those we are arguing with and it hurts our cause more than it changes their mind. Lately I have even thought about going to a few of the churches around town and asking to open a dialogue. Not to argue or even discuss or beliefs but to show them we are good people. Not sure if it will work though.

Hey,
Welcome to the forums.
Well , if you finish high-school and go to college you will probably get high-fivez when you proclaim your disbelief Wink

And if you notice Observer is on the forum asking for recipes to eat a baby : I mean just look at his user name and picture Tongue

Atheism is a religion like OFF is a TV channel !!!

Proud of my genetic relatives Big Grin

Yeah, the more education you get, the less stupid people you seem to encounter. Just hold on and look on the bright side of things.

And welcome to the forum! Smile

Wait ... it's just a gag? ... when exactly were we supposed to actually stop eating babies? ... i could be in some trouble here ...

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
