TheThinkingAtheist has posted two fantastic videos comprised of numerous personal stories and reflections from atheists. Each person opens up in front of the camera, sharing memories and insights on how they became atheists and what it means to them.

I wish I knew every one of these people. Hearing others with stories similar to my own helps me feel more connected with the world. If one of you submitted your clips to these compilations, thank you.

Does anyone in the videos share your story? Have you shared how you admitted, decided, or discovered you were an atheist? If you don’t mind sharing a link to your story, please do so in the comments!

Yes, the freedom to think, to open your mind to the universe, to see the world in a different light, a very bright and clear light surpasses any notion or feeling a blind unwavering belief in a late iron age god can ever provide.

I just shared my personal story this past week with the launching of my blog and the creation of this identity. I know that you already know this, Godless Girl, but I figured I’d share it here in this post for anyone else who may stumble across it.

This link is the first of two parts, the second part is linked at the end of it.
