Read the bible all the way through. Well, I may have skipped over some of the begetting. When I was done with that, I was done with religion.

RE: What was the las straw before you deconverted?
As an atheist I was already there, but a Westboro Baptist Church wannabe preacher at a funeral for an infant did me in once and for all. And by that I mean, if there was EVER any question that I was maybe just in the throes of a spiritual crisis or something like that and would come back around to believing, well, he removed all doubt and that definitely helped give me the courage to start coming out to people as an atheist. Someday I'm going to write about that funeral here. It was the most ungodly thing I've ever seen. Right down to him telling the single mother that her baby died because she had not given herself and her children to Jesus (via his and ONLY his church) and hadn't asked the savior for his forgiveness for her sins... I felt like I was in the presence of true evil that day. And his "amen" chorus of church members who had never met anyone in the family.

Someday. But I really can't handle the telling of it all yet. Bible cherry-picking in it's lowest possible form...

Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?

After all my studies I could not explain the contradictions. Then when the same stories appeared in older religions, I stepped away. Wasn't necessarily atheist, but it was the start.

No sudden event, no life changes, just a slow methodical peeling back of layers of lies and mythology.

Guess that turtle really did win the race.
