X,

Give it time. You have begun by questioning and keeping an OPEN mind. These are good things and this is the path that will lead you to understanding. The dogma of fear of punishment or promise of reward is never a good reason to believe.

I found these books valuable:

The Portable Atheist- C. Hitchens
The God Delusion- R. Dawkins
Deconverted- S. Andrews

Listen to the weekly TA podcasts for a different perspective.

If you want to laugh and cry listen to Julia Sweeny's Letting Go of God link below:

Cheers,
Ted

I had not listened to that before, that was amazing! Thanks!

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

RE: How to completely split ties with religion?
I think most everyone here had to deal with similar feelings and thoughts when we de-converted. It wasn't easy for me. I used my time when I was a new atheist to my advantage and I spent a lot of time studying the history of religion and I also spent a considerable amount of time studying apologetics and how to pick them apart logically.

Doing this enabled me to better stand up for myself when I was comfortable letting people know about my beliefs.

Twitter > Facebook, IMHO. I get 80% religious stuff on my FB too, but on Twitter I just hashtag atheism and I met a bunch of likeminded followers with interesting feeds.
