Recent convert to atheism after 24 years of Christianity

Created on Jun 09 2010
I am 24 years old and have spent my life being confused by a religion which never made complete sense to me. After studying biology at university and reading Dawkins, The selfish gene, The extended phenotype and The god delusion I am finally able to let go of the superstition and dogma which was holding back my mind from free thinking and reason. I now feel horrified that it took me so long to get to this point when it all feels so obvious now.
Only problem is I've spent my life surrounded by Christians, all of my friends are believers and most importantly my husband works for the church! I am lucky that he is so encouraging of my inquisitive nature and loves me for me but I know that most of the people I know are going to struggle with my opinions.
Richard Dawkins if you read this I want to thank you.
