Young Atheist :D
Hi, my name is Steven Dang, I'm a 14 years old atheist, living in Canada, and I'm Asian.Big Grin

I grew up in a atheist family, My dad from vietnam, mother from China, and vietnam was like 81% atheist, and china was 99% atheist, well pretty sure china wasn't religious.Tongue

but I became a Christian when I was about 2,3 or 4, because my parents put me and my little brother in church for free daycare on Sundays, because the baby sitter moved away.

Then I realized Christianity was all fairy tales, and how my love for science contradicts with religion, and became a atheist at age 14. Probably from the help of youtube videos explaining that religion is a lie. I was scared at first that religion was a lie, so I ignored it ,and then I decided to accept god never existed.




Yes I know it wasn't much of a story, its about 12:47am, usually stay up late on weekends, well I tried sleeping earlier but my brother plays his computer that is in my room. So I kinda just sleep late anyways.

If you guys want to hear my story, its rather depressing, and how I was confuse and lost without the help of science. I don't mind sharing my story, I just like to handle my own problems, don't let others worry for me, because of this isolation. I grew up being independent, and not much of a person rely on others, and handle everything on my own.

p.s. I love Intelligence Smile
p.s.s Wonder if there are any younger atheist, probably there is.

RE: Young Atheist :D
Welcome to the forum.
There's a thread in the Casual Coffeehouse topic where everyone says their age - you could probably find some young atheists there.
Best of luck.

RE: Young Atheist :D
I have no idea what the atheism levels in Asia are like, except Japan which is reported to have the highest level of atheism in the world. China being 99% or 100% atheist seems too high a number. Even the 81% for Viet Nam that you posted earlier seemed very high to me. Are they really that high?

I am Canadian, born and raised here. I live in Winnipeg. I hope you enjoy the form.

When I find myself in times of trouble, Richard Dawkins comes to me, speaking words of reason, now I see, now I see.

RE: Young Atheist :D
According to a 2005 poll:

People who say they believe in a personal god
Asia: 50%
Europe: West 60%, east and central 65%
North-America: 71%
Middle east: 79%
Latin-America: 82%
Africa: 91%
World: 65%

The Asians are cheating since Buddhism isn't strictly speaking theism.

Bonus info: only 36,5% of the Norwegian population count themselves as religious. ( best in Europe ) Big Grin

I want to rip off your superstitions and make passionate sense to you
