Ok, I am the only atheist in my family and I have only outright told one of my sisters;I am also the youngest in a large family. Well I can have discussions with her pertianing to religion but the problem is, she does not think I know how to think for myself, or that being an atheist is just a fad for me. I am very offended by this. I told her that the only book of the bible I had read completely was revelations, she respoded by saying " well no wonder you are an atheist." the reason I am an atheist is because i can think for myself.. so I really dont know what to do about this problem of mine.. I mean why would I abandon something that has had a place in my life for 18 years and be an outsider in my extremly close family if im prone to group think? If I did not think for myself I would still be religious. Anyone else have this problem?
