"You're right Umbra, i may have spoken a bit quickly. While saying hurtful things specifically to hurt someone can indeed be devastating, especially to a child, I was referring to adults swearing in more non specific ways. But more to the topic…"

Hey think atheist, I'm only 21 years old and have grown up in a catholic household. I was sent to religious education for over 8 years, from ages 6-14. It was around age 11 when i decided that none of what i was hearing made any sense. I'm open to other religious views, but don't come to me if you're insecure or can't take a little ribbing, because I promise I will not hold back.
Why are you here?
Think Atheist isn't about being anti religion or anti god, it's just about being open to ideas. I live in a world where most people can't think through what they already know, Think Atheist is for people who aren't stopped from learning something new tomorrow just because of something they know today.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
After reading the bible and talking to religious leaders and officials i discovered that what i was learning in school told me that what i was learning in church was impossible. Man Cannot walk on water, create food from nothing, or rise from the dead. If these things aren't true, then the entire religion is flawed. I was the first person I knew in my entire family to openly say to my parents and grandparents that God made no sense to me.
