"I agree with Mark. You evolved after your marriage. So now you just have to be honest and be prepared for what happens next."

"Someone could bring up their own nonbelief by asking Socratic-style questions of a believer.  That would give you a feeling of what's happened to their opinions while giving them a sense of your own."

Posted on May 21, 2013 at 11:30am 2 Comments

I posted the bulk of this on another thread, but wanted to add some context separately.

I finally confronted my faith and embraced the fact of my atheism late last August, 2012. Days after I revealed my "epiphany" to a few friends who knew me from another message board, my sister died from Lou Gehrig's Disease (which pissed her off because she hated catching a disease from someone she never f---ed).

Welcome, Rafael! 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 Parenting Little Heathens.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically. Florida is especially vulnerable.

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.
