Tell us what brought you to the world of skepticism, agnosticism or atheism?

I have been wrong so many times in my life. I have taken some things for granted, and chose to remain ignorant and apathetic to many other aspects of life and our world. Something happened during my high school years. I altered the way I viewed the world and the people in it. I was lied to too often. My 4th grade teacher told me it was hotter in Summer because the Sun was closer to the Earth; and I regurgitated this nonsense to whoever would listen without ever bothering to learn the truth. But then I opened a science book, and learned about energy density and how that density varies with the angle at which the Sun's rays strike the Earth. I learned not only how to ask questions, but which questions to ask. Then I began to apply this approach to everything I thought I knew about our world. And I realized what I always felt, there is no god.

Tell us if you are and atheist, agnositc, or a believer in religion.

I am an atheist.
