A Godless WorldGrowing up in a catholic enviroment wasn't easy. i realized i was an atheist (and i didnt know such word existed either) at the age of nine but i had a deep fear something was going to happen to me if i ever told my parents i was an atheist so i didn't. i waited until i was 16 to tell them, until then i had to endure going to church and kneeling down before a ridiculous theory.
durng those years my sibling became a drug addicted. He "need" (according to my parents) much attention and love because god would "fix' him and make him see his addiction was wrong. At one point they blamed me for his addiction, they said it was because it was a punishment that i didn't believe. i was pushed aside like some unwanted dog after the baby was born. i kept to myself mostly, confined in my room reading book, and doing school work. In 6th grade i had no friends because i was "the non believer" i was a loner. I played with whoever i could find. those who didn't know the word atheist still played with me, I transformed into a nerd, always read books, always had work done, and i was one of the first few to understand science easily. Now after graduating high school i actually have 2 friends. One, whose parents 'hate me because i am a bad influence (cuz you know nerds are bad influences, they'll make you go to college and learn! how horrible is that!!) and they assumed i am because i answered a simple question "what religion do you believe in?" I have also had encounters with the door to door christians who have come to spread the good word of god. I have argued the laws of physics with them and the process of growth and development of plants and some animal. The only proof they show is the bible, that for all we know hav been written by some schizophrenic priest back in the day, As rude as this may sound i actually drag myself to the door when they come by just so i can open the door in shut it in their face, im getting tired of being the "bigger" person when all these people are still acting childish. i will act how i want and like them i will protect my belief how ever the hell possible even if i have to go as low as those religious freaks. I may sound rude and annoying but i have had enough with people putting me down and criticizing my thought and life style. enough is enough.
I had hundreds of questions when i was little about the universe and how we came to be and i still knew the universe had nothing to do with this man living in the sky. So naturally i became interested in science. Science was the world to me, it gave me reasonable answers to most questions and for those who say science cant answer all questions; thats just because they haven't found all the answers yet. I hope in my life time the day will come when i will see less chruches and more school and universities. Where people will not be "brainwashed" to the point where they commit bomb suicides. Where education will lead to understanding and the diminishing of this "GOD".
