"Well I don't ever attend church with any religious friends or family - but I am tired of seeing them still brainwashed into a religion. Maybe one day they will see that it is all a myth. The bible is just pure junk."

Welcome, Rebekah! 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. 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.

You might also like Parenting Little Heathens, Atheists who love Science!, Geek & Nerd Haven, Women Atheists, Female AtheistsMedical Atheists and possibly Feminist Atheists. I also recommend Eco-Logical, since the climate is changing so drastically.
