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

I was raised United Methodist. I had a great experience with religion growing up but became increasingly disillusioned with organized religion after studying the history of the Church. Considered myself a Deist for many years until I furthered my scientific education at university, focusing on evolutionary biology. Finally declared for Atheism last year after discovering the "God of the Gaps" argument, the gaps seem to be disappearing at an increasing rate. There simply is no evidence to support the god hypothesis. It is an unfounded claim.


I am a new atheist, long time skeptic, looking for like minded people to associate with.
