I know what its like also to be surrounded by those who are religious. It feels kind of lonely and I felt like I couldn't really tell anyone. But this site has definitely helped me to feel more confident in my path, and I even think it has made me just a more happy and confident person as a whole.
So as I'm sure you may know, there is an FAQ tab up at the top of the screen that you should check out if you are new. There is a second row of tabs that pop up after you click that tab, you might wanna look around those too. The articles tab is good for learning and freshening up on the basics, without some of the confusing disagreements that can sometimes take place in the forums. I guess all I'm trying to say is check out the place!
