What brought you to Atheist Universe?
​Through careful consideration of many plausible theories I have deduced that god does not exist. I was raised in a Christian household; however, I have continuously had my reservations towards religion. Considering these reservations, I have been examining for remedies for my doubts for about 13 years (since age nine). Until this previous year when I arrived to the conclusion that religion is comparable to an abusive relationship. If you google “signs of an abusive relationship” you will uncover a plethora of examples. Several of them impeccably portray how religion functions.

1. Regularly demean or disregard your opinions, ideas, suggestions, or needs.
2. They regularly point out your flaws, mistakes, or shortcomings. Constant put-downs.
3. They make subtle threats or negative remarks with the intent to frighten or control you.
Saying “I love you but…”
Saying things like “If you don’t _____, I will_____.”
4. They try to control you and treat you like a child.
5. They are emotionally distant or emotionally unavailable most of the time.
6. Guilt trips.
7. Making everything your fault.
8. Using money to control.
9. They view you as an extension of themselves rather than as an individual.
10. They are intolerant of any seeming lack of respect

​However, because god doesn’t exist, god is not causing this. It’s a multifaceted cycle that many of us have become wedged in. We are constantly putting ourselves or others down (“God says that’s wrong…Say your sorry to God and ask for forgiveness”) and later soothe ourselves with the blood shed of god’s son. All of this I am saying with a calm mind. There is no distain, no pain, and no anger. There is nothing to be angry at. Although this is a very simple explanation of my conclusions, I urge you to ponder on this final statement. Whether your morals come from religion or the free thought of society, psychologically its all based on reward and consequence. Motives don’t change if you’re religious, nor do illicit behaviors. They are just masked by a delusional sense of reason and purpose for them.

Thanks for the request, Josiah.

My childhood was cold & unloving, with a mor(m)on mother who married a non-moron, but I don't recall ever really believing, despite being made to go to church every week. I tried, but it just never ''took'', so I think I was always an atheist even though I didn't know what the word was back then.

I rebelled at 17 & told mother I was not going to church any more, & that was that. I discovered atheism by reading, & realized that's what I am, & likely always was.

Good to see you here, Josiah.

Except for the ''love'' part, which didn't exist, you've just described my childhood.
