I am an ex-Christian. There was nobody around to point me in the correct direction as far as thinking critically about what I believed. I was allowed to believe ridiculous things like that Adam and Eve were real people and a global flood covered the earth. I felt stupid believing those things when they didn’t make sense but I was told that was what I was supposed to believe.

When I started thinking and realized I didn’t buy the bullshit they were selling, again I had no one to turn to. I felt alone.

I don’t want anyone else to feel like that. I don’t want people to feel alone in questioning religion or in being irreligious. If I can help someone to not feel so alone because they aren’t religious anymore, then my efforts are more than worth my time.

To me, godless signifies that religion is part of our past, a fact of which we shouldn’t be ashamed. I used to believe in god but have grown beyond the need for fairy tales.

I hope you will join me and use your voice.
