Some of you may recognize me, some may not. However, upon suggestion of a redditor, I decided to come here and let people know that I am now an atheist. As my fellow redditor put it, you guys might be interested in knowing that I have escaped the cult.
In any case, I've been an atheist for about a year now. Well, I call myself an agnostic, but since I do not believe in a god, that technically means I am an atheist. My parents do not know. My husband knows and my sister knows, that's about it. I'm even uncomfortable talking about it in person. I recently met a creationist and he asked me if I believed in god. I told him that I'm "spiritually confused" and preferred not to talk about it. We then started talking about evolution. He told me that there was this video he wanted me to watch. He claimed that it was a valid, scientific defense (and completely sound defense) of creation. I smiled and said, "Oh, that should be interesting. I've never seen valid scientific evidence in favor of creation." Thinking to myself, "yeah, because there is none!"
Anyway, being a non-believer is great! Although, it's a little depressing when I think about death. The thought of not existing is depressing. Although, I don't remember what it was like before I existed, so I doubt I will care once I'm done existing.
I am open to any questions you may have about my deconversion.
