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!

I have been living in a country that intoxicate the young with religious fanaticism. It is really hard to break your shell and live outside the cloak of ignorance imposed by the adults. When you say something against their belief, their eyes pierce your body like bullets and their words will strike you down like a sword. This is the only place where I can be myself and not to be someone that society expects me to be.

ATHEISM
I became atheist since last year may 2014. I grew up in an Islamic family. AR is great platforum to express your thoughts and meet with same like minded people. I'm happy that now I'm a atheist - but now it's very hard for me to still live in an islamic state. Trying to found the way to get out from this state and live somewhere else with freedom.

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!

An individual is powerless against oppressive regimes of their country. The only long-term solution will come with education which is why sites like Atheist Republic are so important with the ability to bypass national frontiers and oppressive regimes!

I came to Atheist Republic as a somewhat new atheist with no one to talk to about it. Since then I have acquired some of the best friends that anyone could ask for. We may not all agree on everything but we are supportive of each other. AR can really be a safe haven for somebody who has questions but nobody available to answer them.

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 belong to India, a place where religious compulsion has its own hue. Even after having many atheist friends, I have a special place for 'Atheist Republic' because here I get food for my inquisitive mind. I get new ideas about atheism, religion and faith over which I contemplate in order to derive certain rational conclusions about my position on faith and religion. I must say they are doing a wonderful job!

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

I'm from The Netherlands. We have no such thing here as Atheism forums or websites, for the simple fact we have too many Atheists here I guess. I'm proud of all the work you guys are doing, we can not have enough atheists! It is growing worldwide.

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!

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.

I live in the country that was under communist regime at the time I grew up, so I was not pressured to be a part of the Eastern Orthodox Christianity, that was predominant in my culture. After the fall of the communism, many discovered religion, and it became integral part of Serbian identity; but even in these new circumstances, I can freely express my lack of belief, without fear of any consequence. I have a freedom to express myself, but I lacked the friends' understanding. Your vision of Atheist Republic made a leeway for people like me to find each other. There, I found many people whose friendship is of outmost importance to me. People that I think of as a part of my family. Friends with whom I can be myself, without fear of them not understanding, so I no longer feel lonely or lost. In there, I also found the love of my life; the woman that is perfect in every possible way. Your vision created the path for us to find each other. I can only imagine of how much importance this is to people whose lives can even be at stake if they freely express themselves. I want to thank you for having the vision that made all this possible.

am from Ghana; proudly Atheist. I always wanted to meet my fellow atheist to share ideal on how we can also educate people about their religion ignorance. It is time Africa Atheist to start preaching to eradicate the religion ignorant in our people. Thanks for this community.

My life is like a bird in cage who dreams about flying. Most my friends are religious. My family is muslims. I questioned about islam since the day i understand the meaning of Quran. Atheist Republic is like a hope for me to be completely myself. Yes i am still hiding for my own security

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!

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.

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.

Dear Athiest Republic Community, You are doing a very good job by posting such content in the public sphere. It helps other atheists to understand that they are not alone in having a disbelief in a supernatural being and opposing ridiculous trends of religion. Knowing that other people share the same concerns as yours regarding the outrageous religious traditions also helps them emotionally and mentally. Last but not least, your posts in public spheres help people to be at peace being an atheist in the midst of all the religious dogmas. Once again, Thanks for creating such an online community. Kindly yours, Nagsen R. Kamble

I have always been agnostic I guess.. I have always reasoned each and every act people do in name of their God and Religion. But I could never debate with Believers because I couldn't find enough points to describe how I feel, AR has helped me with enough facts to challenge the Religious evils present

I am truly glad that you guys are here to provide a haven to atheists, freethinkers and heathens everywhere. Keep up the good work! You are greatly appreciated for what you do. 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.

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. (:

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!

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.

I'm just from somewhere in the EAST of AFRICA where the word "atheist" still suprises people, AR helped me to feel that I'm not the only one and this boosted my confidence! keep helping others especially here where we are still few !

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.

Am from ethiopia where a christianity is dominant...I have been an atheist for a few years now but I have never had any one 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 religion freak family. Thanks AR for your greatest community.

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.

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'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!

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

I (personally) do not have anything against the person who chooses to believe in a deity, I only have a problem when the person wants to impose their beliefs on the next person. As long as the religious continue to force their beliefs into governmental institutions and all the umbrellas that govern all of us, I will have something to say. As long as children are indoctrinated at a tender age and forced to have their bodies strapped with explosives in the name of some idiots' fucked up beliefs, I will have something to say. As long as the sick, vulnerable and desperate people are ripped off by some lazy fucktards who dress in white suits and call themselves 'pastors' only to be told that they weren't healed because they apparently didn't have 'enough faith', I will most definitely have something to say. That's my take, I SALUTE THE FUCKING 'ATHEIST REPUBLIC' AND OTHER REVOLUTIONARY MOVEMENTS LIKE IT!!!!
