I am an atheist.
Congratulations, you know a secret that has been carefully hidden away for over a decade as it slowly makes its way out into the world.
Right now I’m slowly coming out to family and friends, but since I’m still anonymous, you won’t be learning much else about who I am on this site. Perhaps one day, I’ll be more willing to elaborate on the details of who I am and where I’m from, but for now, I’ll tell you what I can.
I go to a small private Christian college. I am a part of a heavily Lutheran family. I have been nonreligious for about 10 years, but I started to really learn about atheism and learn what I believe a couple years ago, halfway through my college career. I love to read books on the existence, or nonexistence of God: right now I’m reading The Case for a Creator by Lee Strobel. I like watching atheist YouTubers, such as Jaclyn Glenn, Alex J. O’Connor, Rachel Oates, and Genetically Modified Skeptic. I started my blog after seeing this video where Hemant Mehta suggested that if it is impossible for a closeted atheist to come out, they can still make their voice heard by means such as anonymous blogging.
My amazing fiancé has helped me get through this weird, frustrating, and fascinating time of getting to know more of myself and this world that we live in. I couldn’t imagine facing this alone. He is my #1 support, and I am so lucky to have him at my side.
Also, I really like cats.
