Excellent, glad you're going to get it all out! I do look forward to more. I agree that there is enough in your story that will parallel with other ex-believers that it will be relevant to them and maybe help them along.

Eh, I suppose I've been pretty lucky avoiding the angry atheists! Well, I admit C0cktopus Prime is strident, but he's more interested in being funny than angry...Frustrated atheists...those I see all the time. I'm sometimes among their number.

"One must be religious to fail the young so abysmally—to derange them with fear, bigotry, and superstition even as their minds are forming—and one cannot be a serious Christian, Muslim, or Jew without doing so in some measure."
Sam Harris, neuroscientist and author of the New York Times bestsellers, The End of Faith, Letter to a Christian Nation, and The Moral Landscape.

Understanding Evolution: 17 misconceptions and their responses ¦ ScienceBasedLife.com

"Evolution is one of the best supported, most elegant, and most powerful theories in all of science. As it stands, it is the best explanation that we have for the diversity of life on Earth. Understanding evolution, as a scientifically literate society, is then a primary goal for anyone who was ever at least curious about the various forms of life we encounter. However, because evolutionary facts are thought to step on the toes of modern religious interpretations of life’s diversity (that all humans came from the interbreeding of a family generated from a rib bone, for example), there are many misconceptions that have been thrown in the way to act as obstacles to true understanding.

All of the following misconceptions and responses are via Understanding Evolution, a project to bring a true understanding of evolutionary theory to the public by the University of California at Berkeley."

A story not much unlike my own...
(via @BenCOGrimm on Twitter)
When Vicky Simister was excommunicated by the religious sect she lost her family, her friends and her faith

I get Johos coming to my door every few months. It nice that they feel the need to "sell" me on their religion (and I get the chance to demonstrate that atheists aren't evil). This is the way it should be.
