My name is Mark and I am a 50+ years old. I currently live in a small town in the Midwest, but have lived in a variety of other cities, states, and countries. I am married with two children. My wife is a wonderful woman who also happens to be a devout Catholic. I was raised and schooled Catholic, but had dismissed it all about the time I left for college. I discounted the bible as a collection of made up stories that made no sense as cohesive dogma for any religion. I was convinced that there was no god as described in the conflicting accounts of the bible or, if there was, I didn't want anything to do with him. As a result, I considered myself agnostic, kind of hedging my bet in case there was some all powerful being. For a long time, I set the whole thing aside and just didn't think about it too much. However, recent events have moved me to re-examine my position and I find myself moving steadily toward atheism.
I am interested in exploring more on this topic.
