I am 31 years old and, like almost every other Irish lad, was raised as a Catholic. As ludicrous as it sounds, I fully de-converted from Catholicism after around 100 pages of The God Delusion. I have always been sceptical of all religion for as long as I can remember. I always found religion too vague and contradictory and it never offered satisfactory answers. But Catholic guilt can be very hard to shake off (I was also an altar boy for 5 years).
Thank you Richard for this newfound clarity and, corny as it may sound, peace of mind.
