I was aware of religion growing up: I said grace at school; made a promise to G_d at Scouts; and attended a Sunday school because my cousin went.
In all honesty, all throughout my childhood and adolescence I never asked myself 'Is there a G_d?' The short answer to this is quite simple - I was to busy for religion and I couldn't be bothered wasting any of my time for something I cared so little for. My first dabble with anti-religion came in the form of a TV comedy called Father Ted; I learnt quite a bit about the Catholic faith from that show.
As an adult, I am critically aware of religion and the past fourteen years has highlighted the extremities people go to in the name of their deity. Dare to draw a picture of Allah? Make any anti-semitic comment online?
Having said that, my experiences with people of religion is rather mixed. I plan to blog about my experiences with these people and events over the next few months.
Were you indifferent to religion growing up?
