my name is akshay sarathy and i just moved to canton, mi from india.
i was just feeling a little let down the other day as i am a part of a really orthodox family, and they have issues with what i believe (or disbelieve). apparently, i’m going to go to hell for asking “why?” and for asking them to explain their beliefs. we are told that some things are meant to be believed without question, but i can’t accept that.
anyway, i was a little depressed, and on a whim, googled ‘atheist support groups in michigan’, and i found this amazing website. i plan to be an active member, and i hope that whatever i do will make a difference in the effort to protect reason, logic and scientific thinking in the world.
