Why are you here?
I'm a militant atheist and no longer willing to be publicly silent. It's past time for those of us who believe there is no god to have at least an equal voice with those who live their lives (and badly affect ours) on superstition and a belief system devised by humans to keep other humans fearful and supportive of authority figures.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
The idea of god has never made any sense to me. I first started to question religious teaching when I was in 2nd grade, before I had any idea of what the world was like. Things have gone steadily downhill from there (as far as authority figures are concerned). By the time I was 15 I was deeply suspicious of any creed or belief system that required me to give up my capacity to think for myself and analyze what I saw around me.
