Why am I here?
This is my favorite site by a very wide margin. Having laughed at Conservapedia for a few years now, it was wonderful to find a site with like-minded people who are in on the joke. I've survived 26 years as an atheist in Texas, having told literally nobody. I used to be Southern Baptist, so I grew up absolutely terrified of God and was convinced that regardless of my deeds in life, I would most definitely burn in Hell. Eventually, I actually READ some of the Bible, and here we are.
I'm here to learn, and to correct minor grammatical errors. Once I learn how to Wiki better, I also want to create some pages.
I'm also going to add quotes here that I feel are relevant to this site and make me chuckle.
 Things not said by me
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."
"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it."
"We are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further."
"Christianity has a built-in defense system: anything that questions a belief, no matter how logical the argument is, is the work of Satan by the very fact that it makes you question a belief."
"A lot of Christians wear crosses around their necks. You think when Jesus comes back he ever wants to see a fucking cross? It's like going up to Jackie Onassis wearing a rifle pendant.
"Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming that I am persecuted whenever I am contradicted."
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
"I think that if there were a God, there would be less evil on this earth. I believe that if evil exists here below, then either it was willed by God or it was beyond His powers to prevent it. Now I cannot bring myself to fear a God who is either spiteful or weak. I defy Him without fear and care not a fig for his thunderbolts."
—Marquis de Sade
