About

Hello Friends!

 

It took me a long time to become comfortable saying the word atheist. Then it took an even longer time to be comfortable calling myself an atheist. I feel like the world, or at least my surroundings, has such a negative stigma about atheism, that getting to a place where I could even consider questioning the existence of god took a long time. But life is short, and I don’t want to spend it hiding who I am.  I am an atheist.

I was a Christian for a long time, a truly devoted Christian. Leaving that community for my truth was difficult, because I suddenly felt like I lost a commonality with 99% of people I knew. I started to blog hoping to hear from others who have similar stories and to feel a little less alone.

There is so much to learn, know, and celebrate in life. We shouldn’t have to hide.

This blog is a celebration of life and being proud to be who we are.

I’m 22 and just graduated from college. I work at a health center for women. I’m happily engaged and have an awesome cat named Figaro.  But I’ll blab on and on about myself enough in my posts. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

M.C.

  1. Hey girl, I just stumbled upon your blog, and its weird, because I have a blog to, and I never found you before (granted I am relatively new to the WordPress scene)
    Pretty excited to keep reading, because you and I are A LOT alike. I am a 20 year old Information technology major, and I “declared” myself as an atheist about 2 years ago. I was a little worried too, being raised in the religious house hold I was, but life has gotten better and better each day not worrying 🙂
    Can’t wait to keep reading,

  2. I don’t believe female atheists exist. Your blog is basic and obviously popular just because you put a picture of your face, your age and the fact that you are female. Try doing it without that and see how far you get.

  4. Back in the early or mid 1980s (my memory’s fading with age), I formed the Tampa Bay Chapter of American Atheists. We were what you would call militant atheists. Nowadays I couldn’t embrace such a label. I’m just a mellow laid-back but confident atheist. It just ain’t worth fighting over, though. Nobody changes their mind and everybody gets angry. Like ol’ Charlie Red.

  5. Hi! I have recently come to the realization that I am an atheist after almost forty years on this planet. I too am a former Christian, though I haven’t been a Christian for a little more than a decade. I was wondering if there were more women atheist to converse with. I thought about it this morning, and I thought to myself that a female atheist would most likely be called the “adorable atheist” so I googled it and here you are. (Sorry if I was relying on sterotypes). At any rate, glad you are doing this. I look forward to reading your posts.
