Why you left your religion.
It's actually an interesting story. When I was in college I was still firmly a believer in Christ. The first blow to my oddly enough came from my English class. We were given an assignment for a research paper and the topic I picked was inteligent design vs. evolution. I was preparing to right a paper whole heartedly defending inteligent design. So I started doing so. It wasn't till I did the research, being the good college student I was giving both topics equal time and respect, that I began to realize that the evidence for inteligent design didn't add up. In fact the entire argument for the "theory" was so full of holes I couldn't have wrote an essay on the entire topic without a healthy dose of inference. When I realized I had such a weak argument I saw no choice but to right an essay whole heartedly defending the theory I had set out to disprove. The first book that really opened my eyes was Richard Dawkin's book The Greatest Show On Earth. By the time I finished that book I was absolutly convinced that homo sapians evolved from a common ancestor. I submitted my paper to my professor, who was a creationist, and he read it. I recieved an A and I like to believe I made my professor question his own beliefs. After that entire world view fell down like a row of dominos.
