Hello, My name is Sean and I am new to atheist nexus, but not to atheism. Just thought I'd post a little hello and about me kinda thing. I was raised christian and even went to a christian university, which ended up aiding in my becoming atheist believe it or not. Being raised christian your just taught it and not to question it so you just think it's right, but it was at the christian university that I actually started studying the bible and religion and started to see how bogus it actually was. So thank you Greek class (learning the bible in greek and learning about all the interpretation and bullshit that went into putting the bible together, if a book on any other subject were put together the way the bible was no one would take it seriously) and thank you Psychology as taught by christians...What a joke. Anyway, enough about my religious background and a bit more about me. I used to do improv, stand-up, and sketch comedy, then I had a kid so I kinda gave that up, and worked a bunch of different jobs for a while. Then decided I wanted to at least be doing something I liked so I went to art school and now I'm doing the artist thing, well trying to (still have to bartend for now).
Makes perfect sense to me!
Most Atheists, as a standard understand the bible and other holy texts MORE than the people who 'follow/believe them'.... And we all know why. Glad you're here! And good luck with the 'artist thing' haha, I know how hard that can be!
