You're to young to be an atheist wait until your older.

I have lived in a house were religion isn't very prominent. Church always took second place to sports and as me and my brothers grew older we started to only go on Christmas and Easter. When I was younger I would always despise going to church but I had been taught that god was real and so was heaven and hell. Well by the time I hit about 13 I started thinking about atheism. There was a boy in my class who was an atheist and from an atheist family. I laughed at him once for saying "Thank God I'm An Atheist". He was the one that showed me that god doesn't have to exist. I always knew there were other religions but I never considered one that didn't believe in a god. After contemplating it I realized I could not for the life of me find a reason to have faith. It seemed illogical at this point. At fourteen I had declared myself an atheist. Living in Canada is much better then say living in Texas in terms of acceptance for atheist and acceptance from family. So my family eventually got wind of my atheism and my dad talked to me about it. I was surprised because I didn't even think he was that religious at all . He told me I was only 15 and there was some things I don't understand. He said I was a Christian and when I was older and I have read the bible I could make that choice.

I am here to ask you what you think. Am I too young have I rushed into this? I try to look for god but I have never found him. I don't understand religion it all seems so silly and illogicall but I am at the know it all stage of my life so maybe I haven't thought this through like I should have. Thoughts ?

I was 10 years old when my sister asked me if i believed in god... before then i didnt know there was such an option.  after thinking about it i told her "no" and been atheist every since.  so no, you are never too young to be atheist.
