Hi everyone :)

Hi everyone :)
Hello! Smile 

I am from France (please excuse the English mistakes, I will try to not commit too much of them^^) and am currently an atheist. I have had many different religious/spiritual beliefs in my life: was raised Christian, got into new age stuff when I was 14 (reincarnation, charas, even tried to learn telekinesis... fun memories I must say x) ). Then just abandoned specific beliefs around 16/17 yo, which led me to a vague deistic/pantheistic view of the world until my philosophy classes during my last high school year, which led me more towards atheism/materialism/rationalism I guess. 

I am now 24, but only some months ago have I revealed to my parents that I am no longer a Christian, and I kind of regret it... It was much easier to pretend than to watch them being disappointed (they are being kind and do not show it but still I can see it). Hope that I will be hearing from some other fellow apostates here Smile

RE: Hi everyone :)
If you have to apologize for english mistakes I'm afraid I'm sol. Welcome aboard.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

Sounds like you’ve had quite the belief journey. We usually require new members to bring tacos, but in your case, we’ll settle for bichon au citron Smile.

 Bonjour Aurora. Bienvenue.     That's about the limit of my French. Your English is excellent

I'm so glad your parents are accepting. They seem to realise it's not about them. 

Have fun.
