  1. I was very fortunate to be raised free of religion. I had the good fortune of having a Natural sciences teacher as a Dad, and though Mom tried to make me into a good Presbyterian, it never stuck, because Dad's science lessons did. Dad & I watched COSMOS together in the 1980s, taping every episode. My Dad was friends with a curator at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. We visited NASA back when it was WAY more geeky than it is now. I just couldn't take religion seriously. When I hit puberty and realized how sex-phobic religion is, that made me angry.

    I did have a (mercifully brief) religious experience in graduate school...but I blame that squarely on a study of Postmodernism that undermined my rational faculties...I embraced a very liberal new-agey kind of quasi-Christianity but it didn't survive long and though I did sink into a nihilistic depression for a few months afterward, I soon recovered myself and feel much more at ease with and confident in my naturalistic view of life and my atheist position on all religions.

    I guess that, though it is embarrassing, I'm glad I had that brief spurt of religiosity, since it allows me to be more empathetic with more traumatized believers like yourself, Rich. Thanks for sharing your story with us.
