Hello there!
Hello there, my name is Emmanuel, I'm from Mexico and I'm 26 years old, since I was a child I always questioned my family's beliefs, my mother is protestant and my father's family is catholic, I was in a catholic school for almost 9 years, there was a time when I was a believer, all changed when I watched Carl Sagan's Cosmos documentaries, I suffered discrimination in the school when I started questioning the creacionist teachings at my school, my mother's christian group tried to convince me that I dont have any control over my life only god, like some sort of puppet-puppeteer analogy, thats when I saw this kind of ideas insulting in every way. For me the judeo-christian faith like every other religion its a belief system based on fear, discrimination, ignorance, segregation, separation, domination, etc. Thats why I became an atheist.
I found this page because I was looking for a website where I could share my opinion about this subject and read other persons opinion. Greetings from Mexico to all the people around here. Peace.
P.S. Sorry for my bad english Tongue

Congratulations for leaving the fear paradigm behind.
Your English is very good. I'd be very hard pressed to be so articulate in Spanish. (OK, Actually I'd be horrible at it. I'm very mono-lingual. ha ha!)
