Also a bit of a hippie- well, without the drugs and pseudoscience. A skeptical hippie? Do those even exist? Ah well, I'm making it exist! :D
Why are you here?
Oh, I dunno… Just got bored one day, looking around on the interwebs and came across this site. So I decided to make an account! :D
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
When I was around eleven, at an Easter vigil at my church, my pastor asked me why I am a Christian and why I believe in God. It was a simple enough question, but I couldn't come up with a solid answer. I lied and stuck with the first cause argument, but the question never really had an answer. For days, weeks, and months the question plagued me. I could not find an answer. I began to cling to my Bible in a search for answers, but the many contradicting answers I found became less and less convincing. Every Sunday, I caught myself rolling my eyes at the pastor's sermons more and more. I knew that I was no longer a Christian when I stopped saying "Under God" in the pledge every morning at school. I looked at the Koran, the Torah, Buddhist and Taoist texts (well, as long as my patience could hold), none of them satisfied my thirst for answers. But one day I heard of this book- This book called the God Delusion. I read it. And unalike the other religious books that I had read, I actually found some answers to my questions. My thirst for these books became insatiable. I read books by Richard Dawkins, Stephen Hawking, John W Loftus, Christopher Hitchens… All of the atheistic books that I could find. After I couldn't find any more, I began to look for blogs like thinkingatheist, pharyngula, and others. Somewhere along the way, I lost my religion. I really don't know where, but ever since I haven't been happier.
