I don't exactly have a lot of time to fill this thing up at the moment, but expect me to in the near future. Thanks a bunch!
Why are you here?
Knowing that the majority of people on this site are atheist is a very comforting thought. I'm down with any community that has a user base like this.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
I was never baptized, so I guess I wasn't a true catholic. Anyway, I spent a lot of time in my childhood attending church with my grandmother. I almost went through communion, but decided not to. I felt I was being pigeon-holed into the whole thing and wanted to make sure that it was what I wanted to do.
I guess that's when I started questioning everything and after conclusions were made and prayers were left unanswered, I found myself an atheist. I didn't really discuss my status with anyone though, because I'm sure like most, you get a reaction from people when you tell them. And they always want to try to rope you back in. Like being an atheist is some kind of sunny day decision and you'll come back when life starts to suck. I mean, some do, but that's certainly not the case for me, and I'd like to think it's the same for most.
