I am Amber.

I am an Atheist.

I was raised in a christian family and baptized when I was 8 years old.  I started doubting the existence of god about when that happened because I was expecting to feel different and I didn’t.  Surprise Surprise.  I did the whole going to church camp thing, but to be honest I was only there for the social interaction.  Yes there was a time where I was really into church and defending it but it was short-lived.  In high school we were learning about evolution in biology class and I was the one to defend creationism.  I’m a bit embarrassed about it now.

I have a wonderful husband that is going through this journey with me.  We went to The Amaz!ng Meeting (TAM9) and came home changed.  We both admitted that we felt like we were closet Atheists and that we wanted to change that.

How did I come up with Color Me Atheist?  Well I was trying to think up a good blog name and this just came to me.  My first and last name are names of colors and I am an atheist.  So it just made sense.

I am in no way a expert in science or religion or politics, but I do like to research and learn.  I like to debate things but in a “agree to disagree” manner.  I’m not here to push anyone one way or the other and I’m not here to make people mad.  I only want to encourage people to think critically.

I hope you all enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy it!  Please comment because I love feedback and other opinions!

      • Thanks. And I appreciate your letting me speak. I actually came out of Protestantism the same way. I was more agnostic, not atheist. I felt like, “Who’s right?” Baptists, Lutherans, Evangelicals, Presbyterians…who??? I’d been all of them. Methodist, as well. But then I found Catholicism, and it seems to be the only one interested in truth.

      • You’re welcome. =)

        I was going to close the comments down because the debate was getting a little touchy but then that goes against why I started this blog. I don’t want to shut anyone up, I want to allow everyone to speak their mind while still respecting to the other person and their beliefs.

  1. As long as people are discussing ideas and not attacking each other, let it go! I won’t attack people, that’s not what being Christian is about. And if people start attacking me, I’ll bow out. I’m not even trying to tell people they’re wrong, just trying to get the other point of view out…One thing I’m not is a ‘holy roller’. And I don’t call down fire and brimstone…:) That’s a management decision, and I’m in sales. 🙂
