What factors influenced you to emerge as a non-believer in a believing society?

My initial rejection of religion was more out of the inherent immorality of the doctrines than its falsity. I attribute this to belonging to a dilute form of Christianity and not being subjected to religiously overbearing parents. Because of these two reasons I tended to believe that others approached religion as I did, a metaphorical doctrine not to be taken literally. As I learned more about the history, formation, and absence of evidence for religion I came to reject it more strongly for its falsity as well.

What do you hope to get out of this group?

I joined for several reasons. I would like to meet more like minded people and I would also like to aid in spreading rationality and fight against the tyranny that religion represents.

What do you feel you can offer the group?

I'm ready to volunteer, help orgainize, etc.
