Subject: A few words from a fellow Atheist.


First off, I want to say that it really pisses me off when God-
fearing people send spiteful letters to you, either trying to get you
to join their faith, or convince you that we are going to "Hell."  If
they can believe what they want freely, why can't we?  We don't try
to convert them to Atheism, do we?

Secondly, I just want to say that sadly, I once was a God-fearing
person...until I looked in the Bible that is.  I saw the most
retarded things there; women being unclean after menstuation, and
anyone who touches her or her bed (?) is unclean, whatever the hell
unclean means.  So then, I lost most of my faith and slipped down in
to Agnosticism.  I thought that "God" may exist, but probably
didn't.  Then I thought about the concept of "God" for a while and
looked through the Bible some more, marveling at how stupid it is. 
Then I realized that there is no proof of the existance of "God" or
anything that has to do with "Him".  So, I lost all faith and slipped
into Atheism, and I have to say that I have not been happier, finally
knowing who I am.  Now, I admit that one of my closest friends is a
Christian, but she respects my beliefs, so I respect hers.  Other
than her, two of my other friends are Agnostics, and my best friend
is also an Atheist (I'll tell her about your site, which is really
cool, by the way).

Thanks for listening to my story.

A proud Atheist,
