Joshua H. replied to Danny's discussion What if there is a god?
"I don't believe it can be said with certainty that there is or is not a god, so I see no issue with his questioning. I, too, was raised Christian, so I can relate to where he or she is coming from. For me, I guess we won't know for sure…"

"First, you don't embrace a non belief. You embrace a belief. You have a choice. Either embrace another belief such as a political or philosophical belief or you embrace reality. The former will cause just as much confusion as a religious…"

"Too bad you're not in Atlanta. I know plenty of black LGBT community folks here and lots of them are atheist. No one can tell you what to do. You know what you have to do. Doing it is the tough part."

Unsure how to embrace non-theism....

This is my first post here. I have doubted my belief in the Judeo-Christian god (I was raised in a Baptist household) since I was 16. I know that I am skeptical about the existence of him and other deities, organized religion, and spirituality in general; however, I refuse to truly admit this to myself.
