How/when did you become an atheist? [or agnostic, non-theist, freethinker, humanist, pagan, or whatever label you choose for yourself]

After reading books and watching lectures from, but not limited to, the following people: Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, Lawrence Krauss, Hitchens, Feynman etc. Also, religion was never pushed onto me while I grew up, so I never belonged to a particular religious denomination to begin with.. though I think I was baptized.. maybe.. not sure :P

Introduction

I'm a big fan of intellectual honesty and by no means think that saying "prayers for x" on a social networking site is humble or even helpful to anyone who experienced a personal tragedy of sorts.
