I read a few atheist blogs, and I love the work that they are doing. Often the blogs I read focus on political and social issues, conflicts with religion, work other atheists are doing, and many other wonderful topics. I want to take a more personal approach and share what it is like to live my life as an atheist. My atheism is important to me as I was raised as an evangelical, conservative Christian. I embrace the label as it reminds me of what I used to be and no longer am. I am much kinder, more respectful, healthier, and better able to take perspective than I have ever been before, and I want to share how much my life has changed for the better since I realized I no longer believe in the Christian God.
(or any other gods, but I didn’t believe in them before either)
