About Me:
I am humble when happy, proud when distressed. I love the strange and the different, but take the orderly when the unique isn't pleasant. I walk the road less traveled but always take a map. I am an idiot in the face of a genius, and a genius in the face of idiocy. In the land of words I am prey, but in the land of thought I am predator. I am blind to the invisible, lucid whilst in the dark, and awake within a dream. I was born as a child, and grew to become a smarter one. I also love to eat cheesecake.

The religion you left
Christian
Why you left your religion.
Around the time I was 10 years old, I begin to question the validity of the things I was raised to believe by my family and community. little did I know I was becoming an agnostic, and I had kept my thoughts to myself for years in order to avoid being ostracized by my family. As I grew and my education furthered, I felt more and more compelled towards atheism as the most logical and comforting belief to follow. Yet I do not believe so astutely as such that I will never renounce my views, I just see no other view to believe at this time that suits my knowledge of, and experiences in, the world at this time.

Today, I experienced a moment of wondrous lucidity, a moment where conscious thought elevated itself to the level of intuition. In laymen's terms, ideas which required a conscious effort on my part to be understood, suddenly became so obvious and so clear to me, that they almost became common sense.

This experience happened to me as I was reading Dawkins' "The God Delusion", when he alluded to the character Winston in Huxley's "1984". I thoroughly enjoyed reading "1984" previously,…
