Hello all of you ladies, my name is Eve, Im 23, married have a 3 year old daughter and I was raised in a Catholic family. Recently I have really begun to doubt any evidence that there is a god or if any higher being/beings have influence on human life and what goes on with the world. I never really believed in Church or in the bible and I guess this brought me to conclusion that I dont have this beliefs or enough faith to be crazy enough to follow a pointless religion. I dont really tell anyone what I believe in since most of my family and friends are outspoken with their religion and I dont want to have people look at me like Im a souless person, but I dont see it that way, what I have in my life and the way that my life is isnt because of God, it's because I made it so. My husband was diagnosed with Lupus and he received an honorable discharge from the navy and we were homeless for 8 months and him without a job until last month, so I guess this also helped me to finally see what I really believe and religion and faith is definitely not for me. I know I wont be rubbing it in peoples faces of how I feel but if someone were to try to dictate to me stuff about god or church I wont shy away from letting them know. As for my daughter Im not sure how I will incorporate this into her life as she gets older but so far I feel like she should be able to decide for herself what she would want to believe. I hope to find some clarification on this board and maybe some insight as these feelings are all new to me. Thanks.
Welcome welcome! I'm new here as well, but I'm not new to atheism. We've got a really friendly crew here, and I hope you'll enjoy your time here.
I'm sorry to hear about your past troubles, but I'm glad that persistence and hard work paid off for you. You learn what you're made of when life hands you bad card after bad card. I'm sure you've found that you and your marriage are made of very strong stuff.
I always want to say, "If God were real, he wouldn't let anyone be sad, or homeless, or poor."
To me, sometimes religion feels like a ranking system. It's all stupid. It's bs. It's lies.
Welcome to the board!
I hope you are doing well.
I have 2 daughters, and my oldest one is 8. She still has no interest in God. If she ever does, I will give her my honest opinion, and she can look into it if she feels she wants to be a believer. I will support her.
But I'm not going to go out of my way to make her believe.
