"Who needs science when you can have a "god of the gaps" to fill in the gaps of information? The more curious you get, the more likely you are to question the belief in a god. In my case, curiousity didn't kill this cat--it made the…"

Your Religious Status

About Me:
Am in my twenties. Love the outdoors and my son and hubby.
Why are you here?
Newly de-convert from Christianity. Texan, conservative Christian style. Am so glad to be seeing the world with out delusion. Better late than never. Now that I know, I can't get enough of learning new things about the earth, humanity, the universe, biology, science, history, psychology etc.

Christian
Why you left your religion.
Became educated about evolution, the universe, history of humanity, history of Christianity, history of the bible, and my faith crumbled as a result. Also started to see the injustice of god giving infinite punishment for finite sins.
