I am a student at the U of M TC studying a program in biology called Genetics, Cell Biology, and Development. I have been an atheist since I was in 9th or 10th grade, but I was brought up in a pretty religious Lutheran household. Most all of my friends are aware of my thoughts on religion, but my family is yet to know. I know I know, I should really get on that since 7 or 8 years have passed... Such is the dilemma that I'm sure many atheists face. Clearing your conscience and sharing your true self, or maintaining positive relationships with family.

Hi, and a friendly welcome to Jeremy Babcock

Welcome to this great Nexus meeting place and its thousands of bright people like you who recognise religion for the superstition and brainwashing fraud that it is---
and that gods exist only as fictions inside people's heads.
