Welcome Christopher,
Books you say... Sam Harris, Dawkins, and Hitchens are the usual suspects for popular atheist or evolutionary base books. Freethinkers by Susan Jacoby, Born Again Skeptics Guide to the Bible was written in a humorous manner, Jesus Mysteries lays out all of the gods before Jesus that were just like him, 101 Myths of the Bible, and etc. Freedom From Religion Foundation has a great Newspaper too. Lots of good vids here.

Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic/Atheist
About Me:
I am an undergraduate at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, studying Biomedical Engineering. I am also a Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) brother. RPI is located in Troy,Ny but when not at college I live at home in CT.
Why are you here?
I was raised Roman Catholic, had first communion, Sunday school/CCD, and was confirmed. I first started studying Athiesm after learning about the Crusades, Holocaust, and the many other atrocities related to religious belief; in high school history class. Now, I read anything I can get my hands on regarding Athiesm. I look forward to talking to other like-minded people on this site.
The religion you left
Catholic
Why you left your religion.
The benefits of religion are numerous (aid groups), but the same virtuous acts can be performed without an believing in a God. The evils of religion greatly outweigh the benefits (holocaust, crusade, teaching of creationism). So why not be moral and good without religion?
