greetings from the UK
Hi, I'm new (Well, duhSmile) and I wanted to briefly introduce myself. I come from an atheist home but converted to fundamentalist, charismatic Christianity when I was 18. Been in it a looong time (I'm now 36), but over the past few years I've started to really question almost everything. This is both alarming and liberating. The ground beneath me has given way, if you like, but I'm beginning to realize it was never that solid to begin with, and I'd rather have truth than lies any day. Looking forward to making friends, basically. Pleased to meet you.

Welcome. There's a thread on deconversion - it would be good to hear your whole story.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
