Why you left your religion.
Very complicated process, at least from my pov. Though I grew up as a diehard "believer" I was also in the habit of asking myself questions. Once I was on my own after the age of 20, struggling in Los Angeles against new experiences demanding personal growth, I stood back more and more asking why I believe this and that. To truncate a long story, in a few years I became agnostic and by a few later, a full-fledged, unabashed Atheist. Having been a great follower of people like Carl Sagan, and these days Neil deGrasse Tyson, provided a strong focal point, as both a scientific compass and a moral one.
