I think I was a young kid when I first started questioning things.

1

It was more of a gradual process, the more I learned about religion and science the less I believed until it just faded away.

1

Another critical moment was when the head Rabbi of my families congregation dumpe dhis beautiful wife and 4 beautiful daughters, emptied out th esynagogues bang accounts, shipped his to Cadilacs off to Israel and ran off with a divorced lady down the street. That was on top of "how could the Holocost have happenned if there is a god?"

Damn That is messed up.

I was a kid, around 10, and that rabbi, Rabbi Wernick, was the closest thing to "god" that I had in my life. Everyone was in awe of him. The previous Rabbi got drunk (like everyone else) after service on a rainy day and t-boned into our station wagon on the way home and put a couple of my bros in the hospital. Insane, isn't it? I only made it to my bar-mitzvah at 13 years old because my parents would have had me strung up if I hadn't. Lol! What would be amazing is if I had't have given "god " the finger and said F off!. Haha... the stories that we have!

Think I was about 7 years old, then at that time I had concluded that an all-controlling magical force could not be an answer that simple.

When I used my brain and studied religion. We know where god came from and why we have seen fit to drink the poison over and over thruought human history. It is a political tool used to amass furtune and to control the population. Period. Eve Martin Luther King had the courage to write about the fact that religion is a collection of stories written to teach "morals". God, the real God, is a teapot orbiting the sun between Earth and Mars. Period. Get over it 😉

Can't say when I stopped believing, I never suffered forced indoctrination.

Pretty much from when I had to go to religious school (hebrew school) training as a young child and had to listen to the indoctrination. I was a major pain in the ass, my parents had to pick me up a few times because I was being disruptive and challenging the teachers.

Patten Oswald does a funny pie man in the sky skit.

But honestly I’ve never felt that sort of religiousness. Churches, baptisms, experienced them all for friends, none of them made me think I was in the spirit of something supernatural. So I am one of the rare born atheists.

It took me a very long time to let go of the God that I was brain washed to believe in. I finally started to think for myself and question things that I was made to believe were true. I can’t believe in a God that allows so much pain and suffering in this world. Science is my religion.

When I survived cancer. If there were a god (and if he or she is as strict as some believe), there would be a discrepancy in the remission rates of cancer by different faiths. But there isn't.

I'm not sure I ever believed. We did not talk about religion in my family.

I was about 4

In my teens when Ilearned the horror of the Holocaust and studied Job.

Too much bad stuff goes down for there to be a man in the sky.

There actually are men in the sky... little grey men... I don't think htere are any grey women though, and just that thought sucks. Why aren't there any little grey women in the sky?
