Before I started posting here I was much more abrasive, I took many comments from theists as an attack. To be clear I still believe the things I did months ago in regards to religion but the people behind it I see as people now instead of labels.

I was quick to judge those based on their beliefs and Ive come to realize that the fringe does not in any way represent the majority. You guys did that and I think it helped make me a better person.

So indirectly religion has made me re-evaluate those who I perceived to be antagonists.

Thanks everybody (not everybody, you know who you are)

There are 3 and I'm sure most know who they are.

I feel the same way--came here years ago as a strong atheist (probably an "angstheist") and now I'm a weak atheist/agnostic atheist/non-theist that is a lot more soft-spoken about religion.

I went through that same process. It's nice, because we tend to associate with people close to our own views. This place helps us open up our sometimes narrow experience.

I've noticed you became less abrasive as the days went by, bratt. We've all gone through that phase, and I'm glad to see you've had an opportunity to rethink things.

Though this board has never exactly made me reconsider being a Christian, it has forced me to think about my beliefs more logically and learn how to explain myself better- for which I will always be grateful to you guys.
