A good number of you already know this and the vast majority don’t, but I hold no notion of gods, an afterlife or anything supernatural.
I’ll write a separate post that goes into the problems I faced and the journey that brought me to atheism, but now isn’t the time. I simply wanted to get it out there to clear any confusion that people may have had.
So, what’s an atheist? Very simply an atheist is a person that denies or doesn’t believe in the existence of a supreme being. This doesn’t mean they’re heathens, immoral, democrats, extreme liberals, baby killers or satan worshippers. They simply don’t believe in gods.
The reason it’s taken me over a year to “come out” publicly is that there were a handful of people that I knew would be devastated by the news. Those people have recently been told so now I’m telling everyone else.
Sorry for this post being a bit straight forward and lacking panache, but I couldn’t find a way to dress it up.
Until next time….
