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).

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.

Howdy!
God(s) and religions are man made and the bane of humanity. 

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most. Ozzy or Twain/take your pick

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.
“Love is the only bow on Life’s dark cloud. It is the morning and the evening star. It shines upon the babe, and sheds its radiance on the quiet tomb. It is the mother of art, inspirer of poet, patriot and philosopher.

It is the air and light of every heart – builder of every home, kindler of every fire on every hearth. It was the first to dream of immortality. It fills the world with melody – for music is the voice of love.

Love is the magician, the enchanter, that changes worthless things to Joy, and makes royal kings and queens of common clay. It is the perfume of that wondrous flower, the heart, and without that sacred passion, that divine swoon, we are less than beasts; but with it, earth is heaven, and we are gods.” - Robert. G. Ingersoll
