Coming out godless
One of my readers pointed me to an interesting project she started, called Coming out Godless. Her challenge is for individuals to talk about how they themselves began to understand that their belief of God was simply false. I visited it recently, and must admit I find the idea fascinating. I highly encourage people to go to her site and submit any story you find funny, tragic, or even educational.
Personally, I tried to write something, but was struck by just how long I’ve been an atheist. They say certain individuals have absolutely no faith whatsoever. I am such a person. Although I went to a Catholic pre-school, their religious classes had absolutely no effect on me, nor did any witnessing individual seem anything more to me than a poor deluded sucker. Of course, this is the same kid who quickly rejected the idea of Santa; I soon learned the inequities of the bearded fat one, having grown up in a very poor family.
Hopefully, some of you will have something more interesting to contribute than I!
