About Me:
Father of 3, married to a critical thinking theist. Odd situation, but it works. Play guitar, loud mouthed, opinionated but not afraid to listen and learn, proudly a member of the Green Party, and absolutely abhor human suffering be it real life or for profit (looking at you entertainment industry). Staunchly against mainstream media (tv, news, radio), believe firmly in supporting local business before supporting big business and I hope to one day see confirmation of intelligent life outside this planet to silence the stupid people in charge of this one.

Why you left your religion.
My father was a presbyterian minister before I was born and even he was disillusioned with the church. He encouraged me to have religion in my life, but on my terms. I did as a child. He passed away when I was 10 from muscular dystrophy, and the church never flinched a muscle to help us. Every interaction I had with a church since then has been negative.

Every interaction with overly zealous religious people has been ridiculous. I became a critical thinker in my teens and have found myself understanding the world, our species, and the universe itself on a level that religion would have held me back from indefinitely.

I found this the other day. Probably nothing you never knew before but it verified my assumption about how people typically "Self project themselves as God"
