Why are you here?
I stumbled upon this site, and liked what I found. I also love to commiserate with fellow atheists, and participate in lively discussions.

Why you left your religion.
I could not succumb to "blind faith", or really any faith at all. I am a hyper-rational person, and I find it impossible - literally - to believe in any supernatural entity. I am a slave to the scientific method, and I must view the world through this lens.
