View Full Version : Brought up to be an Atheist

9th August 2011, 11:05 PM
I've never believed in God, not for one second. But I often wonder if that's a result of my own research and skepticism, or the fact I was brought up with the phrase, "There is no Jesus - you're not going to go to hell." drummed into my head so I wouldn't panic I'd burn for all eternity.

Looking forward to some (hopefully) intelligent conversation on this website. >:D

Hi, Kittii.

This is a message sent to all who find their way to these forums.

We like people, and we like facts too!

We're friendly but we're skeptical, and if somebody calls for proof, it's not an accusation. Only the strong ideas thrive here: we try to respect people. (We do not tolerate personal abuse.)

If you're an AFA member and need your membership status recognised in forum access, please send a Private Message to Admin (http://www.atheistfoundation.org.au/forums/private.php?do=newpm&u=13), including the name on your AFA membership.

If you've got questions, please ask. Moderators have red name tags, but many of our friendly people may have the answers you need.

Enjoy the forums. We hope to see plenty from you in discussions.

Have fun.
