    Now I feel like a new kid in a classroom full of particularly nice kids

    I did have a traditional wedding. But, our weddings are relatively simple affairs, and mine was particularly small (250-300 guests).

    Like!

    Hi, Suja. Pleased to meetcha. Come into the Confessions thread and play with us some more!

    I knew we had more in common Very well said. We celebrate Christian holidays as well (Christmas and Easter) but we're definitely not religious.

    Hi, I'm Aimee and I think I'd like to see if I can fit in this room! I see I'm late to the party but I hope to meet some like-minded people.

    I was raised in a strict, dogmatic religion but left that 20 years ago. Since then I have been calling myself "agnostic" and have been ok with that title. However, for the last couple of years I've been reading a lot of astrophysics articles and have been pretty obsessed with the universe and that has led me to a more atheistic way of thinking. I feel like I should whisper that last bit! So that's me in a nutshell!

    I'm surrounded by religion (everyone except dh is a believer) and I get frustrated at times and need to vent at the idiocy I encounter. Dh is so laissez-faire and doesn't really see why I get riled!

    Nice to meet all of you!

    Welcome! It's a shame that the word "atheist" sounds like a swear word even to those of us who are. I know what you mean. Come chat with us in the net for more heathen action.

    I just found a few discussions in this room very awesome. I may not consider myself secular however, a lot of beliefs about equality that some of you all posted I really was happy to see. I would like to come in here from time to time. I hope that is okay because I do not want to be disrespectful in any way. I have been in the Christian room before too because I have views that could go with both.

    Thanks- Lindsay

    Yes! Of course!!! At least one of our regulars isn't secular. But she agrees with almost everything else we believe in so she fits in perfect. We're not exclusive at all. Welcome!!!

    ps-most our talk takes place in the NET. You're welcome to add to any discussion we got going on in there as well

    What?!? I've wanted to post here like forever! I lurk on the NET all the time, like a creepy Christian spy or something.

    I'm the not-necessarily-secular member. They love me anyway. You'd both be welcome.

    ETA: Oh, and I started by lurking, too. Eventually I just had to join.

    Awww...I don't think we're exclusive. It's not the intent. It's really just a safe place where we can discuss whatever concerns we have going on without hearing, "Pray to Jesus for the answer" or "I'll pray for you". That's all fine and dandy for those that believe, but doesn't really do anything for us. We don't want to be saved. We're all happy (more or less). We have morals and standards and all that. We simply don't believe that there's an invisible man in the sky watching over our every move or dictating what we should and shouldn't do. None of us have a clue what happens when we die. We have our theories and have discussed them extensively throughout the years, but that really has no baring on how we live today.

    Well, we minus one. One definitely has faith but I don't think it's of any organized thing. She may want to explain further...but I know she isn't secular and she still fits in perfectly.

    All I will say in here is that, knowing that this is a "secular" room, there are times when I do differ in opinion but I recognize that this isn't necessarily the place to get into a debate on the subject. Honestly, though, it's rarely a problem for me, but I do make a point to be respectful.
