introducing myself
RE: introducing myself
Knock yourself out with the poll. It just seems incongruent with a welcome thread. Like if I knocked on my family friends' door at a dinner party and nobody said "Hi!" to me and several people just, say, asked me who I voted for, or whether I was Cubs or Tribe.

But if you're cool, I'm cool. Glad to have you here!

ETA: I did vote "no". I once thought godbelief was the default. Wasn't big into church. I just thought that's the way things had to work (oddly never had a problem with science, though).

RE: introducing myself
Hello, welcome to the forum Smile

Yes, I wasn't raised religiously so I realized I was an atheist as soon as I found out there was a word for it.
Feel free to send me a private message.
Please visit my website here! It's got lots of information about atheism/theism and support for new atheists.

RE: introducing myself
Welcome to the forums!

No, I did not always know that I was an atheist... but I was skeptical at a very young age, maybe 11 or 12 years old? I probably made a decision to identify as atheist at around 17 or 18, though truthfully I was probably an atheist a few years before that.

Hope to see you around the site.
