I am a recovering atheist. It took many years of searching for answers to my personal questions about life, existence, religion etc. to reach this point in my personal journey through space and time and thought. There are still so many residual effects from my indoctrination at birth into the utter nonsense that is religion that everyday is a learning experience in tolerance and understanding and dealing with the abusiveness that religion has wrought on my life. I am truly fortunate to have escaped the thought prison that is religion and to have found like minds and those with superior minds. I dont know that I will be able to contribute much to this community as I am not nearly as educated as most of the people on this site and prefer to listen and learn, but if numbers count for anything, count me as 1 more drop in the ocean that is freethought.

"It's really a very simple, straight forward message: "If you don't belive in god someone is going to shoot you in the face."
In this case I can see that the someone they are representing is "if you don't believe in god…"
"As soon as I started reading this I immediately recognized the concepts.
Here is a site which explores this same concept in more detail
This site is one that I visit frequently when I need to restock my mental ammunition.

"So lemme get this straight. An atheist church? People are absolutely nuts.
The entire point of a church is to "worship" with likeminded "worshippers".
There is a lot of superfluous shit that goes with "going" to church…"
Congratulations on escaping the arbitrary dogma and doctrines of christianity. Like us you realise that gods exist only as fictions inside the heads of believers.
