Christos Ioannidis

  Name: Christos Ioannidis Born: 1976 Location: Thessaloniki, Greece Organization affiliation: None Label: Atheist Former Religious Affiliation: Orthodox Christian   My Story My name is Christos Ioannidis, I am 35 years old, I am married, I am lucky to have a one year old daughter. The first seeds of doubt were planted during my early school years. At that time, we were learning in the religious class how great and respected were all the characters in the Old Testament. The problem was that, apart from all these biblical...

Name: William Rayner Born: 01/02/1999 Location: UK Label: Atheist, Humanist, Buddhist Former Religious Affiliation: Christianity   My Story I used to be pretty involved with Christianity- I used to pray quite often, attend church and I once went to a Christian camp for a few days, where every day we would not only pray, but have a bible study session. But the thing is- I never really believed in it. I remember saying when I was about 9 (and still a Christian) in Primary School, when we were having a debate about whether or not a God...

Drew Schlueter

Name: Drew Schlueter Born: March 7, 1980 E-mail: dalkuvel@yahoo.com Location: Peoria, Il, USA Label: Zen practitioner, atheist, Humanist Former Religious Affiliation: Lutheran Christian       My Story I was raised in a church-like environment. My father was a Lutheran and when my mom married him she converted from being a Baptist. So, being raised Lutheran, which is like being raised Catholic but with way less guilt, I did the whole Catechism thing at twelve or so. I believed it all, too. I remember feeling so connected to...

Name: Chris M. Organization affiliation: none…yet Label: Atheist, Humanist, a bit LaVeyan Satanist   Former Religious Affiliation: Russian Orthodox, Catholic My Story I was baptized as a Russian Orthodox Christian. Along with my parents, I didn’t follow it too strictly but at the age of 11, I was sent to a Roman Catholic School where my beliefs opened up to a little someone named Jesus Christ. Being young at the time, I was easily brainwashed and began attending masses and praying every night, but what I never realized was the...

Bill Reitter

Name: Bill Reitter Email:  jwreitter@verizon.net Location: Glassboro, NJ Label: Atheist I Am No Angel It will be left to others to judge if my life has been all that good. As a 71 year old atheist, I don’t feel that I am morally better than my neighbors. My friends are decent, hardworking, sober, god-fearing, patriotic people: Mostly nice folks, despite their mistaken, superstitious, supernatural worldviews. But even without God, even with all my troubles and faults, I might be just as kind, compassionate and considerate as my believing...

Robin Isomaa

Name: Robin Isomaa Born: 1991 Location: Turku, Finland Label: Atheist Former: Evangelical Lutheran I Never Went To Sunday School I never went to Sunday school. That pretty much sums up my early childhood memories of religion. My parents were, and still are, secular humanists in a small town in the middle of the Finnish bible belt. Most, if not all, of my friends went to Sunday school, even if their families rarely went to church. You see, the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland, like most Lutheran churches, is all about faith. You put...

Name: Tune Katerungroch Born: 1993 Locaton: California, U.S.A. Label: Existential Atheist, Existential Nihilist Former Religious Affiliation: Christian-Buddhist, Mahayana-Buddhist, Lutheran-Christian, Agnostic Intro The story of how I became an atheist is a complex one. I staggered back and forth between many religions before finally concluding on atheism. Lutheran Christianity, Mahayana Buddhism, a liberal sect of Islam (yes, at one point I considered converting to that), agnosticism, then atheism and nihilism. I never knew a term for my...

Carol Baker

My name is Carol Baker. I co-host an Internet talk radio show called BROADSIDED and write a regular column called “The Opinionated Bitch” for www.herewomentalk.com. I am an Atheist. At age 40, after being raised in a Christian home, receiving religious instruction and spending a lifetime attending church and searching for answers, the only rational conclusion I could come to, was that the Atheists has been right all along. But my coming out has been a slow process, made doubly difficult in complicated times where the mere mention of...

Lane Keiffer

  Name: Lane Keiffer Location: Virginia Born: Dec 16, 1983 Location: Virginia Label: Atheist Former Religious Affiliation: Catholic   My Story   I came from a strong religious family, well, at least on my mother’s side. Baptized, First Communion… the works. But I always felt something was wrong.  I had never felt a “connection” with a supernatural/invisible being. In short, I never grasped the concept of believing in a deity.  Something just didn’t seem right about it.  This was before I knew...
