I'm new to the forums, but I figure I'll throw a puzzle out there - hopefully it isn't too easy for you.

I like words, but I hope Excellent Xenophobes Leap In With Questions

Welcome Sebastepistis!
Is the puzzle about yourself? other people? words? objects?
Is it relevant that you used capital letters (EXLIWQ)?
Is there any wordplay involved?
Do we have to find out: a story? some relation? a phrase? a logical explanation for the statement?

Is the exact wording of the question important, or would any sentence do if the initial letters were the same? (For example: Every Xanthippic Lemur Is White Quilled)

Is Scrabble relevant at all? Phonetics relevant?

Mnemonics?

Is the sentence used to remember the order of something?
Does it involve:
science?
math?
sports?
entertainment?
history?
language?

Do the letters E,X,L,I,W,and Q represent the first letters to a group of things(that has to do with the puzzle solution)? Or are they symbols for something? Or scrambled at all?

Does the puzzle work only in english? Is language relevant?

Does the order E, X, L, I, M, W, Q represent the same order of the letters in your word? Or is it more of an anagram puzzle?
Do you need to substitute any of the letters above to get your word?

Damia nails it. :-)

Spoiler Alert

One of the most important things in my life has been my awakening to the concept of reason and shaking off the shackles of faith. I figured that 'atheism' was a good label to introduce myself to the boards. Congrats to Damia. :-)
