"Raised in a family who was strict Roman Catholic. I had no idea what they were talking about half the time and as I got older I studied other religions but just for information. That is when I became atheist."

Oh how I used to buy in to that! I surely did. That is how I was raised. My mother drilled it in my head.



"Sorry you had a benign tumor in your knee that nearly took your entire knee out and you had to have a bone graph done on your hip and you could no longer play field hockey. God has a plan for you and put this obstacle in your life for a reason". (I love my mom just not her thinking)

Hi Jessica

Welcome to this world of rationality, truth and peace, where common sense and science lead to freethinking wisdom --- as you know as a non believer and freethinker like us.

We invite you to make good friends by joining the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with 700 discussion topics and 3500 members.

Welcome aboard! =)  Hope you're doing great today...

Welcome, Jessica! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Atheist Writers, Parenting Little Heathens, Atheist Photography Club, Women Atheists, Female Atheists, and possibly Feminist Atheists.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since Virginia's climate is changing so drastically.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.
