There is a significant amount of freedom with "coming out" as it were. Syncing up who you are, with how the world sees you.
I feel like it might be time to come out on Facebook.
Part of me is terrified that I'll lose friends, but if friends are going to ditch me over a shift in my beliefs, they aren't really friends now, are they?
I've been toying with updating my religious status. Currently it's hidden.
Agnostic doesn't quite describe how I feel though.
Atheist probably best describes it, but that may be a hard pill for people to swallow.
Pantheist is a term I like, simply because Richard Dawkins describes it as sexed up Atheism.
But I think at the end of the day, I may actually go with Humanism...
Wikipedia has this definition:
A secular ideology which espouses reason, ethics, and justice, whilst specifically rejecting supernatural and religious dogma as a basis of morality and decision-making.
I think that about covers it... The lack of belief in religion and supernatural forces, but adds to it the believe in reason, ethics and justice.
It's like saying I'm an atheist, and since y'all think atheists are evil creeps, let me add that I still believe in ethics and morality...
Or am I trying to justify too much to people who wouldn't mind if they actually cared.
Still not entirely willing to bite the bullet though, because I know there will be some backlash...
Friend count currently stands at 369.
I'll let you know if I do decide to go for it though.
