Why you left your religion.
I never really adhered to my parents' religion, in the first place. It just didn't "take". But, there was a point when I went from thinking "I don't understand this" to thinking "this is nonsense".

The main turning point for me, I guess, was when I participated in, and "won", a bible verse learning contest. The prize was to be a cool leather bound & zippered bible.

When it came time for them to give me my prize, since in my mind anyway, I had clearly won, they ended up giving one to every single kid in the contest (my age cohort). Obviously, that had been the intent from the beginning. That royally *pissed* me OFF! hah

Still, I kept going to churches for another five-seven years; beyond the point where even my believing relatives stopped going. It's where all my 'friends' were.

Today, even though I have an amazingly good memory, I don't remember even one little thing about *any* of those people. The entire social situation was all very superficial. At least for me.
