It appears that 'Reason' is a very fitting user name for you.

RE: What's Your Story?
I'm glad that you feel better now, I was raised by a protestant mother and catholic father, there was a time when I was a believer and I lived every day in a never ending "mea culpa", I was in a catholic school for almost 9 years and I suffered discrimination from my school mates, even my family during my childhood, I'm from Mexico and I can tell you that is not easy to be an atheist here, my mother's christian fellowship told me that I have not any control over myself, my life and my choices, only god, thats when I finally became an atheist, since my childhood I started to question the faith after watching Carl Sagan's Cosmos, still I was a believer because I was afraid of being punished by a celestial overlord, after that argument about being a mere puppet of an invisible diety I decided to "cut my strings" and started to think for myself, fo course at the beginning I was afraid, but fear is part of human nature, is not easy to get rid of fear but is not impossible.
