"The book of numbers helped a lot. I read the bible at a very young age and shrugged off a lot of what it said and continued to believe. I found that I was very intersect in space and cosmology. So I began reading. I had read many science books and…"

"I think I always was. I never believed the stories that were told in Sunday school. I kept them in the same category as the stories of Odin or Mars. The people of history believed in their religions as much as people believe in their religions…"

"I was raised an atheist.  I sought out God and religions as I grew up, but when looked at from the outside, they all seem arbitrary and equally absurd.  To me it just makes sense that humankind makes up religion.  Also, I have not…"

"The most convincing argument I have ever seen for atheism is a careful reading of the Bible. After that particular indoctrination was torn down, it was a short trip to rejecting all religions."
