Who is Alice?

My name is not really Alice.

I started this blog because I needed a place to sound off on my life as an ex-Christian, but it has now taken over the role of personal blog.

I was a Christian until the end of Summer 2007, when I was studying Judaism for the purpose of strengthening my faith.  Between “Judaism for Dummies” from the public library and discussions with practicing Jews on the Amazon.com Religion forum, I concluded that Christianity was not true.  I deduced from there that there are probably no gods whatsoever, and I was soon calling myself an atheist– there didn’t seem to be any use in prevaricating.

I’m a librarian, I love to read and learn, I like cooking and baking, and I drink lots of tea.

    We might have a lot to talk about. I am also a female, atheist, and interested in homesteading. I just started my own blog on this website as well. Should be an interesting ride. I’d love to hear from you. Good luck!

    Hi! Stumbled across your blog. I justed started a blog myself not specifically geared toward my being a former Christian but plan to write about it. Haven’t completely come out of the non-believer’s closet yet so I am interested to see how people that know me will react!

      Ooohhh… how long ago did you leave Christianity? I’m curious about how your religious friends react. I was somewhat lucky in that I didn’t really have a whole Christian support system that I had to tell about being an atheist (the downside to this being that I didn’t really have any friends at the time, period! lol). Things were rough with my mom for awhile, though. I hope you seek out atheists, hopefully you have a local group, it’ll feel so good to be around other non-believers.

    Well, it’s been about 3 years since I left Christianity behind and I haven’t really talked to any of my religious friends since doing so. It’s kind of a they’re doing their thing and I’m doing mine. Believe it or not I still haven’t really talked about my decision or my lack of belief in Christianity with my parents either, mostly out of fear of their reaction…one of these days I will work up the nerve I guess. The great thing is that I happened to have made quite a few friends who share similar if not the same lack of belief as myself so that helps!
