Daniel Kehoe, welcome to Atheist Nexus. I am interested in learning how you came to the realization that you are an atheist. I can imagine you experienced some stress caused by the strong religiosity of Georgia. Sixty years of living as a non-believer, you must have some interesting stories. 

My focus these days is the positive experiences of non-belief. I am 81 years old and want to leave a legacy of joy, contentment, and peace.
