Please add a brief description of yourself. As long or as short as you like.

I am an atheist as much as it makes sense to be one (roughly 6 on the Dawkins scale). I grew up in a moderately Christian home and attended church weekly until the age of 12 when my siblings and I decided we would stand for it no longer. Until that point, religion had been three things to me: 1) a nuisance every Sunday morning; 2) a collection of ideas that I couldn't quite reconcile with reality, and didn't particularly care to; and 3) an insidious barrier that prevented me from developing closer relationships with family members, namely my excessively proselytizing but well-meaning grandmother, and certain friends. I developed a keen interest in religion and skepticism a couple of years ago and I now realize that I got off easy. Religion affects many people in ways far worse than what I experienced, and I want to do something about it.
