SHL Discussion: How did you become non-religious?

It appears that most people remain believers in the religion with which they were raised. Some small group of people choose to switch from one religious belief to another. It might be interesting to discuss why people do either of these two things, but that is not what I'd like to do here. What I'd like here (inspired by a suggestion from my wife) is to see a bunch of anecdotes from people about how they came to be non-religious. What events or thoughts or people played important roles in your decision (if it was a decision!) to become non-religious? Post your stories here...
