"When I was in a christian elementary school, they sometimes made me go to the church and repent for our sins, talk to God, or stuff like that. But I knew it wasn’t real, because I felt I wasn’t really communicating with good old God. I doubted the church, and later on, in thinking about death when I was 11 years old, I came to realize that how can be there a kindom of God after my death if there was nothing before my death, who created God and why did he create man, why is there existence at all? The questions at a very young age where a precursor to my disbelief in the christian God. I didn’t need science or complicated philosophy to understand, just a little skeptism and meditation or reflection. As I grew up, something that made me have a better view of the world was going to natural history museums, learning about physics and the cosmos, these things only fortified my initial disbelief. I think people of theistic religions don’t have the capacity to have another view of reality, in other words their brains aren’t capable of simulating another reality than the one they have created all their life."
introskeptic, just something I wanted to write about.
