The thing I’m most ashamed of , is the fact that it took me so long to realise that religion is rubbish.
All my life and after several attempts at reading the bible and trying to make sense of it. and visiting churches and so called Holy places in many different countries, hoping for some kind of divine message or understanding, i read The God Delusion and suddenly it was all so very clear that I was in fact an atheist. No wonder the bible didn’t make sense to me. Because it simply just doesn’t. I always assumed that when I got older and perhaps wiser the bible would make some sense and I would gain an understanding of it. I now understand it for what it really is. a means of controlling the ignorant and superstitious.
when I understood that I was atheist , it was as though a very heavy burden had been taken off my shoulders.
I didn’t suddenly become evil I just became aware. thank you Mr Dawkins I finally woke up at 65!!! poor silly me.
Best wishes and much success,
