"It's sunday school I tell you. That's what's creating all these believers. If you eliminate sunday school then you give them the opportunity to reason ( either for or against religion ) without them being brainwashed. The best way to…"
"I look at this as kind of a cyber-revolution. Expose the rotten politicians and greedy CEO's for what a lot of them are. It kills me to hear government say that America is a godly nation and tho hear politicians use the word god in their rants.…"

I am a single man,divorced,having 2 grown children that I absolutely adore.I am employed as a credit manager and am also an accomplished guitar player. I've been a religious doubter for quite awhile but I was married to a woman who after around the 1st 13 years of our marriage,claims she was called by god to enter the church.So she became one of them and from there,started to judge me based on biblical teachings.The rest is history.
Why are you here?
Because I want to find new friends who are also atheists.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
I think it's all abunch of made up crap. The church gets our kids brainwashed before they have the chance to develop their own ideas about god so that:1) they can further their cause and 2)so that once they're adults they will give money to the church. AND,the government gives them tax-exempt status so they can stay in business since it keeps the people "pacified".
