Like many, I was indoctrinated with religion in my youth,  By the time I was in my teens, I was being encouraged to speak from the pulpit.  By the age of twenty, i was an Atheist.  It just ceased to make any sense at all that I-or anyone for that matter-could believe the messages put forth by any religion.

 

I am an old man now and only recently have I discovered that Atheism is becoming a movement.  Is a movement.  A movement that does not have a  belief base to link it together but a movement nonetheless.  I can only hope that I survive being an Atheist in this next of Christians where I now live.
