"That you can, and life is most definitely for living, not living in paranoid fear of a vengeful deity! I truly feel for all the Catholics man, that's as harsh a religion as there is."

"I felt like I was just waking up. Catholic school is a powerful indoctrination tool, however as a natural skeptic I never really belonged or "bought in" 100 per cent to all the dogma. Eternity is harder to give up, but hey....once you…"

"That's a great story man. I think the mere fact that horrible things happening to good, morally decent human beings is sufficient evidence to discount yaweh from existing. Surely we live in an unjust, unfair world."

About Me:
Hi my name is "Jason" after years and years of painful and sobering experiences mainly to do with how I've been treated by others and my growing fascination with science and the world around me I've firmly come to the conclusion that all religion is man-made and therefore a lie. I'm fairly new to professing my atheism and am trying to develop a stonger moral code apart from the tenets of fairy tale religiosity.

The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
No "god" I would worship or give my full body and mind to would allow the things to happen that happen on this earth. Furthermore science has disproven any shred of accuracy from the bible undisputedly. It's very easy to deduce that all religions sprang forth from man's imagination.
