Hi, I'm in Yemassee, SC. I'm 70 and a retired blue collar worker with a new computer. I'm still basically in the closet. I've been atheist for 50 yrs., agnostic for 10 yrs before that, was baptized and saved at age 10 but nothing happened. Raised by strict Southern Baptists I kept my entire family in the dark until the deaths of my parents. I knew early on that something was wrong but was not allowed to question God's word. I got my dad in trouble with his pastor by asking questions that he would relay. I was not allowed to question after that. My Dad told me with tears in his eyes about the love and trust of Abraham who was willing to slay his son on the alter at God's command. I got the message! I learned to stay quite on the subject with every one. I'm not by myself. Politicians and professionals all profess a belief in God at a higher rate than the general population. I am interested in why any of us become atheist. The answer could be earth shattering. Education itself is obviously not the answer. Maybe targeted education in specific areas as I suspect was the case with me. I was interested in stone age people, fossils, taxonomy, animals, the natural world, National Geographic Magazine and probably above all the old Charleston Museum before it burned down. I'm glad I'm finally in touch with you all.
