Recovering from Religion


Recovering from Religion

Unless you were raised by atheist parents, you probably had some recovering to do when you left religion. The purpose of RR is to provide a landing place for people when they jump from religion. With local support groups throughout the US, Canada, UK, and Australia, and real-time resources accessible to everyone, RR is where to turn when faith has lost its luster.

One thing I have noticed is a tendency to "doubt" my new path in life. I still want to reach for the Bible sometimes. I still hesitate somewhat when someone mentions Pascal's "Wager"...LOL! Even though I know that science teaches this and that no…Continue

Shereen, I join others in welcoming you to the "other side" of faith. My book, Life After Faith, was written for people like you, choosing the creative, positive path forward beyond the gods of the imagination.  Be well.

Shereen, I commend you. That took a lot of courage, esp in a Muslim family. I hope you find a lot of support and encouragement in this forum and see if you can find a RR group in your area too. That could be a lot of help to you too.
