How did you become non-religious?

Apr 27 2009

My first post here explains a little about where I am now regarding religion.

Perhaps the strongest influence on my present philosophy was Catholic School which I attended grades one through four.

I removed my children from Catholic School and since 1974 I've only been inside a Catholic Church for weddings.

When my oldest child was a sophomore in High School (1979) she participated in a school sponsored weekend discussion of Secular Humanism. The subsequent backlash from the Christians piqued my curiosity and I became interested in Humanism.

I'm not totally committed to atheism but reason makes more sense to me than faith.

I do have an intellectual curiosity about religion - particularly nature based beliefs, Tao - and I admit I'm quite captivated by the Dalai Lama. I have read Karen Armstrong as well as A.C. Grayling. Rumi as well as Sam Harris.
