"Daniel, I'm hoping a theist will say I, or atheists, have no morals. "Oh? The sheriff has tossed the jailhouse keys and gone fishing?" If said theist ASKS if I/we have no morals, I will remain civil."

Religion hurts more than heals.

I haven't noticed this on any site before though I'm sure it has been discussed.  Religious apologist frequently say that athies have no morals, or at least no moral compass.  I really think this is more true of the religious.  Catholics sin(everything from god's name in vain to murder), go to confession and viola, sin gone.  I'm not certain but I believe some folks get saved and they're automatically covered/forgiven for whatever they do.It's a good thing our justice system doesn't work like…See More

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.
