Did you have an "Ah ha!" moment? Or if not then how did you come to your reason.

And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: Ah Ha Moment, did you have one?
I had my "de-conversation" at age 12 or 13, and it was more that I just came to terms with the fact that I never REALLY believed any of it, and I wasn't going to hide that fact or beat myself up about it any more.

There was that one time when I finally grokked Cantor's Diagonalization and realized "Holy fucking Jesus shit. Infinity ain't one sized." Hobo

I don't know if I had an ah ha moment. I've questioned my religion for a very long time, just never really had the guts to admit that it was full of shit Laughat

RE: Ah Ha Moment, did you have one?
I just talked to a friend about his feelings from having an ah ha moment when he read the Tao Te Ching. I felt like I never had such a thing for any similar experience.

Though I do kinda for a labeling essence. I hadn't believed anything but never had any static defining idea, but then I read a little article of this book, maybe called I believe... that wasn't religious but had collected celebrities stating something they felt strongly about. I read bits of it in a Boarders and Penn Jillette had a essay about how he believed he was beyond atheism. On how the proposition of believing in a god wasn't even worth justifying or communicating about, and while I don't always agree to that stance these days I did have an aha then.

RE: Ah Ha Moment, did you have one?
My realisation that religion is just harmful hateful bullshit came shortly after my family cut me off, I started to actually question my religion and it didn't take long for me to see it for what it really is, harmful hateful bullshit.

My first A-Ha moment came when that animated hand reached out to me from behind the dairy products at a supermarket.

Yeah, me too. Yes
