About Me:
I had loving parents, but was strongly indoctrinated with Mormon beliefs as a child.

I grew-up with a logical mind and loving science, but ignored logic and science where they disagreed with Mormon beliefs.

As the years went on, my logical mind slowly made me question Mormonism. As a teenager, I came to the conclusion that either only one religion was true, or they were all false.

I believed less and less as time went on, but I still had the fear of Satan getting control of me and deceiving me until I was about age 55. (On August 5, 2014 I became 73).

That's when I finally realized that I had never had any prayers answered that I could tell, had never felt the spirit letting me know the truth that I could tell, and never had any help from my spiritual leaders that I could tell.

That realization confirmed that Mormonism was false. With that in mind, I decided to study evolution, which Mormon brainwashing had me arguing against and refusing to study.

That study quickly made it obvious that evolution was true and proved beyond any reasonable doubt that all christian religions were false.

My study of evolution let me to Richard Dawkins, and his book "The God Delusion". That book was the final nail that convinced me that all religions were false, and that there was no evidence supporting a belief in a god or an afterlife.

I quickly realized that faith and belief are ridiculous, and now accept as true only those things that have a great amount of scientific evidence to support them.

I’m now able to enjoy learning the fascinating and amazing new scientific discoveries about life and the universe without religious dogma getting in the way.

Since leaving behind the fear and guilt of religion, I’ve overcome a great deal of depression and anxiety. I’ve become 100 times as ambitious and have lost 37 pounds of extra fat (halfway there), without any questionable diets.

I love the beauty of green growing things, and very much enjoy growing things in my garden, especially delicious things to eat.

Luckily I live very far from most of my family so it's not that much of a bother. I have one acquaintance who insists that the coincidences that happen in my life must make me question the existence of "god". She doesn't accept that it does not, that is most annoying. She attempts to play on my losses to lead me back to the flock. It does the exact opposite. We would be so much nicer if religion was not part of the picture, if people would accept this is all we have...

My family chooses to ignore that I'm an atheist. Except for my grown children, who are atheists, everyone is still trying to "save" me.
