I am an atheist.
Congratulations, you are one of the only people who know that.
Since I’m still in the closet, however, you won’t be learning much else about who I am on this site. Perhaps when I come out as an atheist, 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 about a year ago. I’m reading The God Delusion (slowly: college is time-consuming) for the first time. I’ve started watching atheist YouTubers, such as Hament Mehta, The Thinking Atheist, Alex J. O’Connor (he is also on WordPress), and Jaclyn Glenn. YouTubers like them suggest 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, so that’s what I’m doing.
My amazing boyfriend 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.
