Hi - welcome to the group. I was an early non-believer. Put god in with easter bunny, santa, tooth fairy. Now call myself an atheist, and a godless pagan. We celebrate the rhythms of the earth, solstices, planting time, harvest time. Always have a big bonfire on winter solstice so the sun will come back (seems like a good idea), and most of my ancestors are from northern Europe.
When we had kids in grade school, my wife and I did got look at some churches, as we were in a catholic neighborhood in Albuquerque. Their friends were telling them that they were going to hell as didn't go to church. Ended up at a UU church, and liked what was taught to the kids in Sunday school. Mainly question, and if don't get a good answer, don't believe.
We have stayed with the UU church. Our local church has a Humanist group, and we do use freethinker friendly language. I go to church for community, but out in nature for peace and quite.
I do have family back in the midwest who are very religious. I mostly stay away from them.
Again, Welcome.
