Hello folks, a little about myself, I was born and raised a baptist, for most of my childhood we lived right next door to our little humble chapel, just a couple of 100 meters up the road was a grand catholic church, that was mainly used by the wealthy in the area, had a huge statue of Jesus on the cross in the yard.

My school had a compulsory religious education class, though the boredom I felt meant I was not taking in the lessons.

But it would be many years before I removed the shackles of religion, I was in my 30s before becoming agnostic, at that point I started questioning things religious, it was not until my 40s did I become atheist, so you can imagine this was not a step I took lightly, I still feel the affects of religious indoctrination and I'm not sure that will ever go away, but one thing I can say for certain, I will never be a born again christian unless Yahweh himself appears and explains his horrific actions as told by the bible.

I am fortunate, I have a father who is a christian and still very much believes in a god, but he taught his children to think for themselves, I meet up with my father on the weekends for a pint, a christian and an atheist, we can discuss our beliefs and disbeliefs and enjoy each others company throughout.
