I had just wanted to know if a god existed. I new about evolution when Iwas 10.I did not know about theistic evolution.At 16, I read Nathaniel Branden’S existence is passage[It is now in Stein’s anthology on atheism.]. I still wondered had to read and ponder for 42 years on athiesm.Now I blog every where in favor of atheism/naturalism. I still do not care to discuss religion with anyone otherwise. I never had any regrets about being a believer in reality,not mumbo-jumbo. I never had thought I needed a god.It was just to know.I never needed an after life. Wha t is fortunate ,although I have a schyzotypal personality disorder,supposed to have weird ideas,I not only deny a god ,but the paranormal.
