About Me

 I was raised a Christian, in a non-denominational church, and I chose to be an Atheist when I was old enough to make such a decision. Most of my family members are missionaries, or at least highly involved in the Church. I went to a private Christian school until high school. When I was around 13 years old I started to see the inconsistencies of religion and how everybody alters it to fit their views, hopes and desires. When I was 14 years old my parents wanted me to get baptized and I refused. Since then I started to no longer believe in Christianity, or any other religion I came across, but I didn't admit to being a true Atheist until I was 18. I enjoy debating people and hearing their different views on religion, morals and ethics.

Quote

 "My personal #1 reason that I don't like religion is because I like knowledge, I crave information like a crack attic craves crack! And Religion suppresses knowledge; not just the knowledge unfortunately, but it suppresses the entire drive to understand. With ideas like God created it and we can never comprehend how so don't try, religion wipes out the one thing that makes mankind great, our mind!" -Garrett Fogerlie
