a slow but sure process towards rational thinking

Question 
a slow but sure process towards rational thinking
It wasn't like I woke up one fine morning and realised my atheistic state of mind. It began when I was a a school going "hindu" being accused of stealing a few coins and asked to swear to and before God I didn't do it. After all the drama, my parents discovered the coins slightly tucked away in a different place from where they initially placed them. Slowly I started moving away from religion and temples meant the tasty food and nothing more. My reading which intensified during my doctoral research moved me away and away though I was still clinging the last vestiges of religion. The break finally occured when I was introduced to Dawkins and from then on I never looked back. Hope to learn and share as long as I am active in this forum.

Hello @.

Funny. We have xtian fools around here who hear about Dawkins and run shrieking back to their book of fairy tales seeking comfort. I guess they are the products of inferior education.

Hope you enjoy yourself.
