I'm 26. I like reading, writing, and swimming. I've been a browser of NG for years. I'm an honest person and won't tell you anything to be offensive towards you. What goes around, comes around-though. Peace.

Recently I've decided to take a stance as an atheist. I made the decision about a year ago after finally denouncing being agnostic(I had taken up being agnostic after denouncing Christianity).
I wasn't born into the flock of sheep that makes up the body of Christ...I found my way there hoping to get answers as to why so many things in my life had happened as they had. I thought believing some God was allowing all of this to happen and one day would take me back and give me comfort would settle my mind and emotions...alas it did not.
Going back to the start...why is it for the past year I have been accepting, quiet, and tolerant of my religious friends - yet the moment I start to post my atheist beliefs they begin to attack me. Pointing out how I am completely wrong, how I am immoral, and how I will go to hell? Funny thing is...they use The Bible to protect themselves and to voice their reasoning. How is this effective to me? I don't believe in it.
I look up at the sky and stars and I know that I am not special, that I am not created by someone just for the sake of being worshiped, that I am nothing more than an organism brought to life through reproductive factors, and that I will one day die and turn to dust...
I'm okay with that. It's easier to wrap my mind around than some boogey man in space deciding to create me. I'd type more - but most people can't focus that long. I'm sure I'll approve a few comments, even those on the opposite side of the fence...because I'm open-minded and willing to question myself before questioning others.
