After four and a half decades of quiet but convinced disbelief I've finally decided to seek out other atheists and share. They say there are no atheists in foxholes. Well I've been a soldier and a pilot and can tell you it's bullshit. On more than a few occasions I've been terrified enough to shake and once was sure that I'd be dead in a few minutes. I'm glad I was wrong; but not once did I utter a prayer. Born into a Roman Catholic family and educated from grade 1 through 8 in a faith based school, I simply didn't buy it. My unruly mind would not conform and in fact got me labelled as an "attitude problem". For years I envied others their belief in God. What a comfort it must be. But after a while I got used to it. Made peace with it. Last month I stumbled across a Christopher Hitchens debate on you tube. It was like a flash of light in a cave- I'm not alone.
Then I found this website. It feels like a homecoming.
