I am an agnostic atheist. I don't fit the theoretical meaning of atheist(I used to fit ). But still, i join this group to know more about people that aren't theist around the world.

@Tristan Smith

I am too. It's a shame this group is so inactive; all we get now are spammers.

So am I the only one receiving a lot of spam from here? Because I am.

@Austin Nystrom

Yes. Wherever you lie on the religious spectrum, you are welcome.

But I'm curious. What do you mean by "an intellectual?"

Comment by Austin Nystrom on August 10, 2013 at 3:22am

I recognise that religion has done quite a lot for humanity and that it has also been responsible for atrocities, wars and abuse of power. What interests me is the religious impulse and why it evolved, perhaps we were at a stage where it was necessary for power to be ceded to certain groups and that this stage is now passing due to the level of education and awareness. It is interesting to note that religion seems to flourish in impoverished countries (which is why christianity is still expanding in such countries.) From a strictly scientific view of course one should not be an atheist but an agnostic as this leaves room for the atheist and the religous viewpoint to be proven or not. So many atheists are like the Bear that left it Alone (see James Thurber) in that they have swapped the certainty that god exists for that of another  certainty that god does not exist. Both methods of thinking are similar in that there is a need for certainty whereas a truly developed intellect will allow the uncomfortable feeling that things may not be as they seem.

@ Jules 

I am in the same sort of situation. Knowing that you are not the only one to deal with it/that other people are dealing with it at the same time makes everything... not easier but less lonely. Its always good to have people.

Hey guys! I'd like to say I'm atheist, but my parents are very Christian, so it's hard to break away.. I'd love to get to know some of you :)
