About Me:
I guess I'm kind of a consequentialistic secular humanist agnostic atheist naturalist type deal. Also a Pastafarian, particularly when in full pirate regalia. I'm a little quiet, though when it comes to debating logic, religion, or human rights, I can get somewhat confrontational, but I usually remain civil (unless talking to my family about forcing me to go to church.

Why you left your religion.
I'm a thinker. I can't help it. This is what led to my apostasy from the Roman Catholic Church. It kind of scares me that I was a part of it. You see, I was a good little zombie, and not one of the more fortunate souls who were skeptic from birth. I was raised as a devout Catholic, never questioning the Pope or his teachings. I was even voted as "most spiritual" in the 8th grade yearbook. Then I got my hands on a Bible. I began thinking: "How can such a nice guy have such a d.b. for a dad (AND be the same person)?" Shortly after this, I got into Leviticus, Deuteronomy and all of the verses that we were told were to be *interpreted*. Well, for the life of me, I couldn't figure out how to "interpret", "Kill the gays, adulterers, rebellious teenagers, Jerichoans, and ALL of the Canaanites," other than how it was written. Then I started to think about god logically, and... well, as Nietzsche would put it: god died.
