Alright, so finally getting around to my bio. I was born a poor black boy... sorry, old Steve Martin joke. smile009.gif

I was raised conservative Catholic, although in fairness, I don't recall there was a whole lot of the heavy dogma in the house that Catholics are known for. Possibly the worse was being made to memorize the Apostle's Creed. Yuck!

I turned atheist mostly during my high school years; can't quite recall if the process was complete by the time I started college, but it would have been close. It wasn't due to any traumatic event; I just dared myself to consider the possibility one day, and things started to make sense. There was one last burst of religiosity in the 9th grade due to being sent to a Catholic High School, although that school didn't have much to do with my change.

How Did You Become Athiest?
godef comments on Nov 27, 2017:
Basically, I just began thinking for myself. One day I dared imagine what the world would be like if there wasn't a god, and a lot of things began to make sense. Things that were once so contradictory suddenly no longer contradicted at all, and were merely the inventions of people I didn't really know trying to make sense of their small corner of the world. A myriad of dogmas all tied up in knots suddenly disappeared. It began sometime during high school and I believe (though I'm not quite sure) was all sorted out in my mind by the time I went to college.

godef comments on Dec 29, 2017:
You could be Einstein if you are good with math, because it takes the same out-of-the-box thinking that you do to become one. You might be considered a genius, but instead you are "fringed" by being an atheist. You could say mythology influenced my being atheist but in a different way; when I was a kid, though I wasn't particularly religious like you, I loved the album Jesus Christ Superstar, much like a kid might like Star Wars now, would sing it every day in the shower (I was a really clean kid then). If you're familiar with JC Superstar, you would know it to be a more humanistic telling of JC's end days, and I think that helped lead me away from the dogmatic, perfect-JC-never-sinned of main stream religions.

If we're talking about the imminent future, than I would presume that they were the more advanced civilization that has managed to come the great distances to visit us, and part of being more advanced would be their having "grown up" and shed their religions. Any manipulation on their part would be to take advantage of humanity's dependence in religion in some way, presuming they are less than friendly. Anyone ever watch Babylon 5?
