Atheist Roll Call!

Another atheist here. I enjoy finally having a worldview I'm sure of, with a solid foundation. I've been an atheist for over 10 years. I was raised a churchgoer (Dad an Episcopal priest). Had a lot of doubts in college. Went to church on and off. In my thirties, became an active churchgoer...enjoyed the social life of the parish, held offices...but the doubts wouldn't stay repressed. Left, thought and read a lot, and finally committed to being an atheist. Enjoyed the writings of Stephen Jay Gould, and many others. Still a little difficult with other family members. You?

I can't remember how long I've been an atheist. I suppose it's always been there and I came to it after going through most of the worlds religions but they had nothing in them that I was interested in. I wasn't brought up in any particular faith so that probably contributed to me being an atheist
