Hello good thinking Folks

You can call me Brian. I`ve recently signed on & read a few of your newsletters. You certainly one up many "Christians" on bible knowledge. Normally I`m not hardcore on most things in life but religion hangs on me like nasty, stubborn piles! "Christian" dogma was forced on me during childhood without benefit of rebuttal! Kinda leaves a lingering bad taste. Now after far too long I`m able to think for myself, somewhat. To me the bible is contradictory, cryptic, & writteneth in archaic language. Newer translations serve only to further muddy the waters. A disjointed compilation concocted over a long time period by many authors in many languages. WTF - I don`t understand it! I remain horrified & repulsed that this is the only indisputable guide/manual that is required reading for those
that would otherwise be doomed to hell. What a choice!

Thou art free agents - conform, obey, or else!! Quite naturally I`m repelled like a polar opposite. This over- abundant continuum
of in your face religiosity is inescapable & all permeating! At present I consider myself an agnostic ever leaning towards atheism. Your newsletters, contributions, & train of thought are reassuring & refreshing! I`m not alone nor am I pre - sentenced to the other place. I find Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawking, & Stephen Hawking, to name a few, much more palatable.

I`m not ready to sign on as a full fledged atheist, but I`d like to remain on your island of sanity in a sea of assholes as an interested consumer. Here beith my feedback in good faith to thee.

Thank you, keep up the good work!

This website shows me how lost some people are and how hard their hearts are to the Gospel of Christ. They are blinded to the truth. It helps me know how to pray for the lost, that they would be convicted of God's deep love for them.

The growth and development of my Atheism has reached the point where I began to seek out books on the subject. Finding this site and Armin's book are a much needed resource and advocate. In solidarity Tom

AR is a community where atheists can be themselves and speak openly about topics that theists would typically chastise.

I had false hopes for years, I saw friends of mine praying in vain, I questioned the existence of god to no avail. No one gave me answers. With AR, I have read, I have come to understand so much more. I love that I got to know about this site.

Having be surrounded and surrounded by people that look down on me of my disbelief, AR is the one place where that doesn't occur. I am very lucky to have a family that excepts me and a father that agrees with me, but it does still get kind of lonely being constantly told either "I'm going to hell" or "I'll pray for you Turner". Atheist Republic is freedom from all of the chained up minds of the bible, and I thank all who participate to make it what it is today. (:

I have never been able to find many other, like-minded people. Atheist Republic gives me a home. Here we are one fight. We are one army. We are unified, and here, on AR, we have a rallying point, and a home.

As an atheist doctor who is from Syria I am facing a hard time sharing my thoughts and beliefs. I believe the smartest decision I have ever took is leaving Islam. Although my dad will hate me for this I wish someday I can talk with him briefly about it, and share with my community what I think. This page is a hope for all those hidden atheists that face death every day in a hostile environment. And I would like to thank the ones who created such great thing. Thanks

Life is beautiful. I come to this website not only as a former Christian, but also as a current professor of religion. Reading the like of Harris, Dawkins, Hitchens, Dennett, Jacoby, et al, has been a liberating experience for me. I propose to help others shake free from the bondage of the mind that religion holds people in.

AR helped me to be able to proudly say I'm an atheist. Without feeling judged.

I was raised in a very conservative Christian background – Jehovah's Witnesses to be specific. When I was about 17, I joined facebook like any other teenager but with an added twist. I had been doubting the religion of my family for quite some time. Long story short, if it wasn't for Atheist Republic, I would still feel like religion is a life-preserver instead of understanding that it more resembles a noose. I owe you all so much for saving me from the barbaric ideals that I once held as holy. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

One thing I explicitly enjoy about this group is that even through the good and bad experiences we all may have shared in this group, AR is deeply and inherently a group full of caring, kind-hearted individuals that enjoy the time they spend helping others in ways that many other organizations have attempted and failed to do. No matter what area of the world you may come from, there is a giant home for all of us to live in right here with a massive family of atheists who all promote and share different ideas that we can work together on to accomplish great things. And THAT is exactly what creates a good site on the internet. I am proud to say from an IT standpoint, that with your help, another wonderful addition to the global bandwidth of the internet has been made with both Atheist Republic Masterminds and now a support group linked within the AR website. I applaud the work and efforts of the administration and community alike.

I had joined several sites before to attempt to find an Atheist community, but this site by far outperforms anything out there! Information, debate, reason, and awesome stuff can all be found here in ample supply! I am very glad I found Atheist Republic, and I will not be leaving! It is truly among the best of ports in the storm, as it were.

I grew up in a muslim family where traditions are followed blindly. My family follows Islam with all their heart and energy. I also used to be the same till I started finding reasons and logic behind the teachings. No one in my family or circles know about me being an athiest. I find this a good platform to share my views and know more about the facts one should know and to increase my knowledge base.

I'm happy to find a place that I feel accepted in. I'm normally repressed or insulted for expressing perfectly logical discussions about religion. If we must accept and live amongst religion, then religion must accept us!

I came out as an atheist about four years ago, and I haven't looked back at the times of the indoctrination my parents attempted to put me through. I feel like on this forum and with the help of fellow atheists I can tell my ideals to the world!

I am from a Muslim majority country and have never thought that I could express myself. But, then there I have found AR and it helped me to opine and meet the equal-minded people.

You have no idea how this group has helped me by getting rid of stress. Whenever I have to come home from the cities I have to visit, I get to catch a breather from all the religious culture my country (Mexico) hangs all over the place. Although I have only been in the Atheist Republic Facebook page, I can firmly say that this site has a lot to offer, with tons of eager smart atheists to share. I wish I can do more for this site. I really do.

I grew up a Catholic, very superstitious and religious (still don't really get the difference) because I was raised that way. I thought God to be everything good, at least I wanted to believe that until I gazed into his supposed character inscribed in the bible. I came to realize that it was the worst character ever written in print I mean theists call him righteous but he is guilty of every sin against humanity. I still didn't want to accept this or more honestly, I was afraid of hell if I ever questioned his holiness..... I came to a partial settlement that God made men, and then men made religion. Sounds a bit logical but it still didn't add up. I then came across the argument of morality versus salvation by Dan Barker (President of the FRFF) and all my questions were answered. Felt good making sense out of my own beliefs for a while, but then there is this loneliness that haunts you, I wouldn't come out to anyone, I'm from Zimbabwe, a modern day medieval society; you have no idea, we still get stories of witchcraft in newspapers down here and the government is informally theocratic, a 91 year old dictator who has ruled for 35 years through democratic means because church leaders say God chose him, and yes, homosexuality will get you a 5 year jail sentence. The secular world is very alien down here and so I became a digital Atheist. Atheist Republic became my safe heaven and provided me with refuge from all the religious prejudice I have to put up with every single day. I think religion is an insult to humanity as it is based on an assumption that we are a mistake by God (Genesis 6:6-7) and only a human sacrifice of his son who we should embrace forever are we purified and through this barbaric concept of human sacrifice shall we escape God's wrath (John 3:16). Anyone is free to believe that crap but they poison children with bigotry and hatred building up religious prejudice, they believe their imaginary friend is in command of everyone's life and we all should be thankful for his grace despite his evil nature; how's that for an insult? Everything went wrong when religion hijacked morality and humanity which we Southern Africans called ubuntu before the European missionaries came with a bible in one hand and a gun in the other. The gun was better because if you live by the gun you die by it, it led to the fall of the apartheid and colonialism, but the bible still haunts the mentality of my fellow country men to this very day. I support Atheist Republic and I hope its impact and message would spread to places like Zimbabwe where the secular community is in hiding afraid of stigma.

I found you on Facebook and enjoyed what I saw and read. I have a desire to learn more about the thoughts and opinions of other atheists as I don't really know any personally. I am excited to check out more of your site and maybe make some friends who think like I do. Thanks for being here!

Being an Atheist in an otherwise pretty religious town can get lonely at times. Luckily, the internet also has a place where I can talk with others about my belief in facts. Thank you Atheist Republic!

I love this opportunity to share thoughts. As a Nigerian, I live in a country where everywhere you turn, you see religion in its diverse forms. Atheist republic is so much of an oasis for me. Here, I know that am not alone and I can be myself here and its really great.

I have been a atheist for a few years now but I have never had any I can talk to about it. My entire family are Christians and when I bring it up, they get mad at me and try and convert me back to a christian. It always ends up in a fight between me and my dad. I have never truly felt alone in this world until I became a atheist But now that I have found this page and see that I am not the only one going through these types of problems, my life has been looking brighter and brighter and I don't fell all that alone any more. I'm happy this page is here and I'm happy that I have found it. I thank you very sincerely

I feel as if I have never been religious. My family is Christian, yet I grew up never fully believing. I was one who asked questions, and got no answers. Then I found out about Atheism, and was excited that there were other people who were the same as myself. So, this site not only lets me ask my questions, but also acts as a medium to allow other Atheists, such as myself, to let ourselves be known. I thank Atheist Republic everyday for that. We are Atheists. We are people. We are human.

This page... gives me an outlet that I don't have in the real world, living in a small, conservative town, surrounded by religious family members that I don't feel like I can talk to (Not even my own mother). I don't feel so isolated knowing that there are other people going through the same experience as me.

Where else can I tell my buddy God, "enough with the father-son stories, it's time for the holy spirit to come." Freedom of expression, even if negative, deserves to be at least listened. AR guys are doing a great job, I'm sure the almighty won't mind.

I just want to thank you for creating such a great community. I grew up in a pretty strict christian household and it wasn't until I went to college that I began to step away from religion. Recently I had my first child and my best friend's mother took upon herself to tell me that I was responsible for my daughter's spiritual health and even though I don't believe in god I needed to "save" her. After this happened a couple more times, myself and another atheist friend of mine put her in her place and she hasn't bothered me since. I began following Atheist Republic right before this happened and it was such an amazing thought to know that there were other people out there who shared my thoughts. Atheist Republic really helped me keep my sanity while going through the criticism. Thank you!

I am from Zambia, the only country in the world where 'Christian Nation' is inscribed in the constitution and the President has vowed to rule by the 10 commandments, so the few Atheists here are forced underground. AR is the only place of refuge for me.

Your articles are inspiring and written in a fashion for the average person to understand, and that is important if you intend at appealing to any theists.
