I wouldn’t trade that period in my life for anything, though. It was the worst time ever but I’m stronger having gone through it. The day I stopped believing was 12 days before I tried to kill myself.
Never have I looked back and thought, "Gosh, I can't believe people prayed for me; what a bunch of n00bs."
I knew I would lose most of my friends when I became an atheist, and it took me about three years to be able to publicly admit my new belief. I'm still nervous.
Please don’t console me with sayings like “God has a plan for you” or “They went to be with Jesus” when something bad happens.
Studies have shown that people who go to church are happier, healthier and more optimistic than ones who don't. I'm an atheist, but count me in.

Despite the fact that the overall social opinion trends against pedophilia, there are plenty of people out there who think it's possible to classify sexual assault as “mild.”
I remain open to the possibilities. But I’m not going to worry about them either. I have too much other stuff to do.
"I have many friends who believe in ummmm astrology and crystals and energy fields and the like. I don't."
