"Thanks for the welcome, everybody. Maybe I should say it this way: My total indifference to practicing religion led to a realization that I am indeed an atheist. For several years I've jested that I don't bother god and he doesn't…"

"Harris welcome to the site. I was also brought up Southern Baptist and went to private school. I went through many religions before I finally made it to Atheism not too long ago. I guess only you can tell when the time is appropriate to bring up…"
