No atheism on Facebook

From the IAmAnAtheist feedback form: I’ve emailed you before, I don’t know if you remember…but it shows how great the people around me are (at least about religion) when I’m asking for advice from people on the internet that o don’t even know the gender of. The last email was probably better planned out, but […]

Unanswered prayers and atheism

This message was left as a comment on one of my posts. I replied directly to the poster via e-mail. My 21 year old son is an atheist. We had him in a christian school for four years, we went to church every sunday. When his grandfather died in our driveway on Christmas and my […]

Undecided about religion

Hello, my name is Stephanie. I am a sophomore in college, days shy of my 20th birthday. I found your website via StumbleUpon, and I wanted to write to you because I have really begun to have some conflict with my religion. I wasn’t really “raised” anything in articular, since religion was never present in […]

An atheist hypocrite?

from what i’ve read on here, you really are helpful. i stumbled into this site while searching for the correct definition of an atheist. i think i might be a “weak” atheist? to start off, i was raised in the church (my father was a deacon). like many young children who’ve been brought up in […]

Please set me straight then. Because I just would rather not be here. I’m tired. I know how this looks, re posting my own desperate pitiful comments for someone to notice, but I don’t care. I guess I need someone to notice. First let me make something clear, while I am depressed, and considering a […]

Hello. I guess you could say that I am a recovering protestant. I spent most of my childhood going to church and not really believing any of it. Now that I’m off to college, I feel more free to think about my religious doubt, and to research information on both sides of the table, so […]

September 2007

I have an actual useful question now actually. During the past few months I have been becoming increasingly interested in religion, spirituality, atheism etc. and have been trying to work out where I stand in it all (which is how I came across Joseph Campbell). Anyway as my university term has now finished I have […]

I have been raised as a Mormon for 17 years. And only in the past two have I come to reject it. At first it was not conciously done, now I am fully athiest. This has led to inevitable conflict with my family, especially since I still have to go to church and keep up […]

February 2007

I am a sophomore in high school, and I have been atheist since around sixth or seventh grade, although I didnt really understand why. I guess it seemed to be the intellectual belief, and to be honest, I’m an intellectual person. My arguments basically consisted of “There are many things more likely than the existance […]
