'that day THEY PISSED in our corn flakes'
"faith is no longer a private matter"
....the only hope for mankind is a 'war on faith'
WE do not deserve to be COLLATERAL DAMAGE in their HOLY WAR

I followed the social conventions my family set out but quickly realized that most of the people were hypocrites. That bothered me worse than belief in god. Once I could articulate the feelings, about age 14, I was done and gone!

Sam Harris mentioned that religion was never a big deal in his family when he was growing up.

Most of the notable Atheists I've read about or heard interviewed seemed to have "converted." We may not get much attention but I'm guessing there are far more of us who never believed than we realize.
I admit I've always been fascinated by religion and I even tried believe a few times but I never could seem to figure out why so many around me believed in things that I just saw as weird if not out right silly.

Thanks for the group recommendation.

When we moved here we were all alone, and knew virtually nobody. One thing about the south is the folks are very friendly. My wife got sick a couple of years ago and the folks in our little town have really wrapped their arms around us and offered us much love and support. We happened upon an eclectic group of liberal minded freethinkers and pagans who have adopted us as family so we have all the friendship we desire. However our property has everything on it I need or desire so when I can go a week or two without leaving I am very happy and feel I have won. I am in no means a hermit or recluse I just am happy in my own little utopia.

Hi all my name is Kimon, I am a life long atheist, well at least from the time i was old enough to think for myself about 7 or 8. I have spent most of my life not in the closet but in a state of disbelief that people can possibly believe the things they do. The older I get (48 years young in March) the less patience I have for ignorance. I am a full time caregiver for my wife, an artist and a hobby farmer. We have a little piece of land tucked far back from view and spend most of our time here aside from trips to the doctor. I am stuck here in the buckle of the bible belt by choice and love it here although am quite frustrated by the constant barrage of proselytization I am subjected to anytime I leave the "COMPOUND". I came to grips with my atheism at about 12 years old and declared there is no god much to the shock of many around me. Of course I lived in the proverbial closet for most of my younger years. My family was non-religious but believers in their own way. Later in life my mother who was raised Lutheran embraced religion and it seemed to comfort her as she lost her fight with lung cancer. I consider myself a Strong Atheist, but I am not militant. I do however let others know when they step over the line. Of course it usually shocks them. Last week I went to Walgreens to pick up a prescription and the clerk said to me after I paid "God Bless you" when I told him I am already blessed and I didn't need his "Gods" help he about passed out.

I never knew about religion until I understood what death was, my parents said when I die I go up to heaven, but that was it, we were not religious, in fact I didn't know of a god until years later, I did prayer in school but I never understood it, just a boarding thing we had to repeat that never stuck in my head, to my parents religion has never been a big thing or even an issue.

I thought there was a god in my teens, but never a religious god, just the story of a god that takes you up 2 heaven and if I'm naughty I go to a bad place, that was the beginning of my realisation that, hang on this god isn’t just a god, his part of this thing called a religion, when I studied into it I realised it was all so evil and disgusting.

Before I realised it I understood the word atheist and was making vids about it on YouTube, then I quickly realised just what the world is. It's all happened so fast me realising I was an atheist, but the thing is, I always was.

17 now! Howdy! There's plenty of things to discuss on this site, like the first time you were introduced to religion by a neighbor or a friend when you were little. I grew up smack dab in the middle of Crapta. Did I say Crapta or Utah? I meant to say Utah, sorry. My jaw hit the floor when I first found out why every neighbor kid couldn't play on sundays because of this thing called religion. Never heard of such a dumb thing in my life. I was never told about religion by my parents. They loved me to much.
