I was born into a Mormon family and raised to be a Moron (oops, Mormon). I even served a two-year mission in Argentina. Later, I married a Mormon woman and had two children. While the children were still quite young, I did some research, hoping to prove Mormonism to be correct, so that I could convert my non-Mormon friends. I was shocked to discover that Joseph Smith, the founding prophet of the Mormons, was a false prophet. He made predictions in the name of the Lord that did not come true, and the time of their possible fulfillment had passed. Therefore, I left the Morons and was excommunicated for apostasy. Upon my excommunication, my wife took the children and disappeared. Later, I got divorce papers in the mail. I have not seen her since.

BestWithoutGods comments on Jun 8, 2019:
I find value in fiction. It gives my imagination a boost. But I do not want to become confused between fiction and nonfiction. I insist on knowing which is which. That's the problem with religions; they teach fiction as if it were reality. Then they use their false reality to scare you into giving them money. It's a scam.

Speaking to family about religion
BestWithoutGods comments on Jun 7, 2019:
When I became an adult, did my research, and discovered that religion was not reality, but mythology, I was honest with everyone about it. The church excommunicated me. My wife took the children and disappeared. Later, I got the divorce papers. My parents were kind and accepting. But the most important thing was what I thought of myself. I was happy to keep my integrity intact and be honest with everyone. Their reaction is their own business.
What if....

BestWithoutGods comments on Jun 6, 2019:
I would answer: "Let's examine the evidence to see if I'm right or wrong." A Christian would answer: "I have faith that I'm right. No evidence is necessary. I believe what I believe regardless of the scientific evidence." This is what prompts the question, "What if you're wrong?" Beliefs are flimsy and can easily be wrong. Evidence is solid, as long as we seek the best evidence and make well-reasoned conclusions based on it.

BestWithoutGods comments on Jun 5, 2019:
But now that we have governments and access to the science of ethics, we need to ditch the mythologies. Fiction is fine, but it must be conveyed as fiction, not as reality. Also, people (priests & pastors, for example) should be prosecuted for using myths to scare people into giving them money.

I am a prime example. Having been born in a Mormon family, I trusted my parents when they told me that everything the church taught was reality. It was only as an adult that I started to question Mormonism and Christianity in general, and discovered that there is no basis in fact or evidence for accepting such mythology as reality.

I find my comfort and happiness in doing good to others. I enjoy volunteering to help the needy, or being of assistance to my friends and relatives, and just doing common courtesies like opening doors for people. I also like to feed and pet animals. I have rejected the mythology of religion, but its ethics are sometimes worth keeping. My life motto is, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." That makes me happy and gives me comfort. :)
