I just joined this site and I thought I would introduce myself.
My name is Daniel. I am an atheist and live in south Hampshire in the UK.
I also have an autism spectrum disorder. I often feel isolated because very few people understand what it's like to be autistic. I am hoping to meet people who share my naturalistic rationalist worldview, and who understand autism well - for example, family members of autistic people.
Regarding how I became an atheist - I didn't think much about it in childhood. As a young adult, I attended an evangelical church for a while. It is there that the pastor's preaching started to make me think. This guy was asking questions from the pulpit and providing allegedly "Bible-based" answers. I asked myself the same questions but I came up with my own answers. That is how I became an atheist.
My other interests include cycling, geology and philosophy.
