Welcome to the Young Atheists and Freethinkers group on Yahoo.
As the name implies, this group exists to provide young doubters a forum in which to air their doubts about religion, and their questions about atheism. It is a place where they can become comfortable with those doubts.
This is not a debate forum. If you are here for the purpose of converting anyone, or attempting to win back the youths that come here asking questions, sorry, you're out of luck. The forum is strictly moderated and any such messages will be deleted from the message base and the offending member banned. We do not fear debate, as any one of us can be found in the many other debating forums out there. We highly recommend Debating Christianity as a place where you can easily strike up a debate, in a congenial and cordial atmosphere free of invective. Here you will not find such cordiality, as you are not welcome here if you are an evangelist.
Naturally other rules apply, the usual ones against spamming and flaming.
Young people whose beliefs may not be accepted where they normally live and go to school will find this non-dogmatic, welcoming atmosphere a relief. If you are a young person interested in atheism, please do give us an introductory message letting us know how old you are, how you came to doubt religion, what if any problems you are having with your doubts, and any questions you have about atheism, freethought, etc.
