Why are you here?
Without first putting my faith in doubt and considering the rationality of my beliefs, I went to a Christian college where I am very much alone by being an atheist. I came to this site to confide in others and be surrounded by other freethinkers who also believe religion is a weakness and not a strength.
The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
I had a time several years ago where I was doubting Christianity. I couldn't explain away the inconsistencies and problems I found, but I also couldn't make the leap to leave Christianity yet. I eventually made the transition by pretending I had no beliefs and doubting everything. I decided I would believe whatever I could rationalize, and I never could rationalize any faith without evidence and the Christian beliefs I previously held. Long story short, I became a deist for awhile. With the help of Dawkins and others, I eventually became an atheist as I understand that the existence of god is not even a rational or necessary belief.
