Right? Still can't fathom how anyone can read the bible and take it seriously. The cosmos is beautiful and amazing without the need to invoke a creator. I say the creationists underestimate the scope and grandeur of the cosmos.
I cannot say I ever had the AH HAH moment. But always thought that my beliefs should always be questioned and examined. But started that examination with a vengence after reading "The Pagan Christ" by Tom Harpur. Since that time have pretty much deconstructed my belief system.
yes, it is... my parents are still catholics, but nowadays i can't justify any believer who has at least a high school qualification, because it's a nonsense. when i talk about religion with someone who believes in god, i feel like i'm an alice in wonderland where everything is upside down, where i am the bumptious who pretends to know everything. this is simply surreal! religion causes lasting mental harm.
