Mary, Converts, #(2364)

Sep 2, 2015

I grew up in a town with a 50% high school drop out rate in the bible belt. I have always been curious and never held back questions. At about nine years old my questions were too profound for people in my church to answer. I still felt it was right to believe because of this thing called “faith” everyone kept shoving down my throat. It wasn’t until I made it to college, and I finally got to open my mind. I started attending cultural anthropology and sociology lectures that I wasn’t even registered for, because I was fascinated with the culture of other people. This helped me realize how crazy religion actually is. Reading an unhealthy amount of science books has given me the logic I needed to accept my athiesm. I attend a university in Texas, so I battle my way through debates that usually end in the words, “I’ll pray for you”. I admire what this website has set out to do, and you can count on one more outspoken athiest scientist in this world.
