Hi yall,

Just joined a week or so ago. Been lurking to get the feel of the place.
Please excuse any spelling or non punctuation. I went totally blind last year from diabetic ret. been getting shots in both eyes have  very little sight in right eye none in left.

Both my parents were both athiests.Dad was career Air Force, 56-76, he never felt the need to hide it. We 3 kids were taught that the current world religions would one day be considered myth as is all the other religions.

They sent me and my brother to sunday school on a church bus so they could have alone time, but we were back home within an hour, because I kept telling the sinday school teacher that she was wrong.

Throughout my life I have never hid my unbelief even tho Im swimming in a sea of fundies here in this less than 1000 people in Texas.

Thanks for listening
Aurelia

Welcome to the forum! If you are intending to come to this summer's annual baby roast, remember that it will be BYOB (bring your own baby)

Welcome to our batch of heathens!

In the end, we are all standing in the dark,
trying to figure out why we are here.
But let us not choose one direction
without proof of where it is headed.

Check your pocket for matches
so we can observe and learn together
as fast friends and relative idiots.
