I live in a small Missouri town where I often find myself challenged to defend my non-belief, by people who ask me things like - 'So Wyatt, what did your family do for Easter?' or 'I just loved The Passion Of The Christ, didn't you?
If it comes up in conversation, I have no problem telling people that I am a non-theist. This seems to really bother some people though. Usually people who don't know me very well.
Suffice it to say that I am not cynical about the religious beliefs of anyone. I certainly have strong feelings about the absurdities of religion, and I have found that most of the Christians around me do as well.
I am not here to debate Evolution or theology to some understudied creationist, although science is my passion. I don't believe these people are worth acknowledging. They have no intention of doing anything except preach and repeat the same old douchebaggery.
No, I would much rather discuss evolution with people who believe in it, and share knowledge and common interests.
I don't even really want to discuss atheism. What's the point?
We all agree, we're all atheists! What's to discuss? Go herd cats!
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
I have always been interested in all religions, so as a youth, I found that the more I studied about religion the more I understood it for what it was, and the reasons people choose to believe.
