I am 16 and if you met me in real life, I would tell you that I am Christian. However, I have been thinking a lot about this topic, and the more I think about it the more I think I don't believe it.
I have been thinking about posting here for months and have finally decided to do it, I haven't told anyone about my beliefs and wish to keep it that way, which is why I'm not using my real name. I don't think my family would disown me or anything like that, but I feel if I tell them I wouldn't have the same closeness towards them. I also fear losing many of my close friends and connections, as I have met most of them through Church or through family. So my only fear of coming out would be losing the sense of community.
Another fear of admitting my beliefs, or lack there of, would be answering the hard questions because I'm still young and don't have the knowledge yet.
In saying that, I wanted to post on here to see if I could get that same sense of community here. I hope I can be more involved on this forum in future and want to learn more. I have recently been watching a lot of atheists of YouTube. For me the main person who convinced me was Aron Ra, his knowledge of religion amazes me, and I have learnt quite a lot from him. Another one of my favourites is Lawrence Krauss, I have read a few of his books and really enjoyed it. I am really into physics and have enjoyed his books a lot.
I hope to enjoy being here, and hope to learn a lot. If you have any questions for me or anything you think I missed or should know, let me know.
Thanks a lot. :)
