Atheist or Agnostic?Is it unreasonable for someone to claim that they are an atheist? Is "agnostic" the only reasonable choice for a non theist?
EthicsFor a long time, this forum was called "Ethics and Opinions of Peter Singer" because much was written about him here after his Charleston visit many years ago. However, as of June 2008 I'm renaming it just "Ethics" and hope that people will begin posting to it more often.
Event AnnouncementsThis is a new forum that is for the announcement of events that may be of interest to SHL members. Note that such announcements may be removed after the event occurs...or not depending on how busy the administrator is and how interesting the post may be.
How did you become non-religious?It appears that most people remain believers in the religion with which they were raised. Some small group of people choose to switch from one religious belief to another. It might be interesting to discuss why people do either of these two things, but that is not what I'd like to do here. What I'd like here (inspired by a suggestion from my wife) is to see a bunch of anecdotes from people about how they came to be non-religious. What events or thoughts or people played important roles in your decision (if it was a decision!) to become non-religious? Post your stories here...
