Well done, another brave atheist makes it out Smile I respect the courage it must take to have to tell a religious family this big news.

Congrats on freeing your mind at such a young age. Studying and trying to get closer to my religion (at the time) is exactly what led to my atheism. I always loved the irony about that.

Fear is what drove me away from religion. I didn't want to be afraid and that led me to question the god I grew up with. I simply didn't want him to be for real, since he seemed such an evil, petty old bastard.

Research into religion only came later.

Welcome!
I'm glad to see you're interested in astronomy. It just so happens to be my favorite subject of science also! But anyways, I do hope you stick around, and enjoy your stay Smile
