Newbie from Wales, UK
Hey guys, as the title suggests I'm from Wales. To say I am against religion would be a severe understatement. I have a 9 year old son who is just about starting to think for himself although, he believes in god and Jesus and tha whole bible story. All because it is taught to him at a very young and impressionable time of his life. I am not going to outright tell him there is no god and the bible was mythical nonsense, mainly because at his age I believed it all too along with Santa Claus, I was christened and have godparents etc. He is bright enough to learn for himself what the truth is, he is already raising questions as he is a dinosaur fanatic. He seriously know the full name of every dinosaur that been discovered along with what time period they lived in and what they ate etc, everything! It's not going to take him long to put the two together and come up with his own understanding of the bible and religion as a whole.
I'm quite interested in forming petitions against religious education in schools until students reach an age where they can decide to opt for that subject as an extra curricular study.
Hope I can make some new friends with the scientific viewpoint I have on here, it's very frustrating to read and listen to the deluded, arrogant ramblings of devout Christians, with their u can't prove it so it exists attitude! Grrrr
I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.
