Hello! Thank you for having me!


Recommended Posts

So, for starters I was raised as a fundamentalist Southern Baptist.  I was heavily involved in the church including being a key member of the worship team.  I received a Bachelor's of Religion from Liberty University.  This lifestyle and belief began dissolving roughly three years ago and I am now comfortable identifying as an atheist. Since my deconversion, I've grown interested in philosophy and logic. Also, my love for biology is no longer hindered by a faulty Creationist viewpoint.  

Outside of my religious beliefs, or lack thereof, I am married, we have one son and my wife is currently pregnant with our second child! To pass the time, my wife and I make a lighthearted comparative religion podcast as well as make music and goofy videos.  I personally enjoy playing video games, yoyoing, and skateboarding when I get the chance.  I'm looking forward to getting to know people on here!

Hey @NimrodIAm,

Welcome to the forums!

 

Sounds like you've found your way out of the mind-fuck on your own. Kudos to you!

Stick around and help us support those still lost.

Hi Nimrod! ( kind of feels wrong to say that like I'm insulting you!)

 

Welcome glad to have you here!

 

It sounds like you came out of Christianity relatively unscathed? Was your wife a Believer too?  If so it sounds like she deconverted as well?

 

Hope you enjoy the community 😃

Do you or did you have work related to that christian education? If so how did you adjust? Congratulations on getting out! From totally brainwashed christian to atheist in only 3 years is really fast so you are very lucky. Glad to have you with us.
