I always thought church was strange and that something just wasn’t quite right in church as a child. As early as the age 8 or 9 I would ask my mom why does god care what I wear to church if he “made” us naked. By the age of 13 I knew religion was just as irrational as Santa, and way less fun. Although I was not converted to atheism from the god delusion, it convinced me that there is absolutely nothing wrong even in America with being atheist. My wife however, was not sure even though I knew she was to rational to believe in any form of a god or goddess. The god delusion officially solidified her convictions to be an atheist. She is a shy person by nature so she is not ready to come out.
