About Me:
Some people are hardwaire to religion, I suspect that I am not. Even though my parents sent me to church as a child, religion never made sense to me.
I prefer to describe myself as agnostic, because, even thogh I don't entertain even the most remote possibility of some all powerful supernatural intelligent being, I cannot and will not claim knowledge of the unknowable. In short, I seperate what I know from What I believe or disbelieve.
Age

Why are you here?
I've been an active commenter on a few atheist blogs for years (under a pseudoname), and considering that atheists in Nashville seem as rare as the elusive Florida snowman, I just googled and this site showed up.
The religion you left
Was never a part of one
Why you left your religion.
When I was 15, I realized that many problems of religious people around me wre cause by religion.
