My dad thinks I'm an atheist.

Your Dad thinks Baptists are atheists? Huh

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.

Play too much Devil's advocate with him.

Apparently I come across as an atheist IRL to people who make assumptions about such things.

I was raised Christian, and got really into it. Went to Church 3 days a week, was a member of the traveling drama and missions team, aided the youth classes, etc. Went to a Christian school up until 4th grade, as well. Finally broke free of that when I was 18.

Thanks. And yeah, it didn't help that my mother was a youth pastor and the head of the choir, and my father was a Deacon.

Wow, how'd you pull that off? I was president of my church youth group, but that's a whole 'nuther story.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
