Newbie intro (kinda)
Hello forum.

I'm more of a lurker but thought I would at least say HI to you all and give a very brief introduction.

I'm a native Oklahoman and have been an atheist for roughly the last decade. I began my trip away from religion at the age of 18 when I started studying the bible in preparation to become a minister.

Hi and welcome.

What was it while studying to become a minister that started you on the path to atheism?

Seems like that was one experiment with unexpected results! Welcome Smile

I was raised in a christian home, of course. Reading about all the immoral actions/instructions of god in the old testament, which was really glossed over in our church, is what started me on the path. Since it was never really discussed in my home or church, that is what made me dig deeper into the bible for explanations about how the god I knew could be so evil. All my family, friends, and pastor kept telling me was to read my bible and god would make it all clear to me. I took them at their word and decided to read the entire thing.

Welcome to you and your critical thinking skills.Thumbsup
