Member of the 5% of Active Duty Military that does not believe in God......
My name is Nic and have been searching for a place to discuss and debate my feeling and thoughts on Faith (or lack there of) with not only people that share my beliefs (or lack there of) but people that have different points of view. I happened to stumble on the site and have been lurking for a few weeks. Thought it would be as good time as ever to join and become enlightened by others views.
Real quick background.......Raised Catholic, left the church at 15.......became entranced in studying world religions in hopes to find my way. After 7 or 8 years of study.....serious study......it dawned on me that I would never be happy in any given faith or type of religion. I became agnostic and started questioning everything about God and faith itself. the more I did......the further away from religion and faith I went. I have been atheist for about a year or so can honestly say I have never been happier.
I hope to not only learn from people here and share idea's about how I feel and how it came to be.
