"I think Jewish parents tend to get upset about their kids not being religiously Jewish, but they still love the person and they usually grow to accept it. Esp if they're not super observant. At least, that's what happened with my mom. It…"

"Thanks for posting this, its inspiring! You're not alone, I have strict religious parents and they have come to accept me in spite of me telling them "god is imaginary" on a regular basis, so it is possible."

Came Out An Hour Ago...

So I just came out to my dad while we were in the car driving home. He was talking about how he wished that I was a Boy Scout, like he was when he was a child. He always jokes about this, so it wasn't anything new, but I felt differently about it this time. So, I told him that I wouldn't be able to be a boy scout because I am an atheist. He just laughed because he thought I was joking, and said," You're a Jew, not an atheist." Then, when we got home, I told him that I really was an atheist, and…See More

Hey Dan, just read your 'introduction'. Good for you - if more people were able to recognise the contradictions in what they mindlessly believe, the world would be a much better place. Welcome to AN. Check out the 'Brief Guide to Atheism' at http://atheistprinciples.tripod.com

Hi to Dan Weinberg, and welcome to Atheist Nexus. We are pleased to welcome you here among the sensible, rational people of this world who, like you, recognise religion for the superstition and fraud that it is --- and that God and gods are nothing but fictions inside people's heads.

Terry Meaden
originator of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 250 discussion topics.

We invite you to come and see, and to make good new friends.
