Although I didn't understand it at the time, my childhood love of science is what triggered my atheistic mind and life. Same old story: reason vs. faith--with reason the winner!
Consequently, I'm really enjoying a library book : The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2012, edited by Dan Ariely. It's a compilation of articles found in science magazines. Nothing anti-religion, just science. AS I said in my very first A.N. post, I did not join to bash religion, or even discuss it. I'm a non-believer, and that's the bottom line.
I highly recommend the previous book I read, Unbroken, by Laura Hillenbrand, the inspirational (sorry) story of Louie Zambrini, a high school track phenom (ran in the 1936 Berlin Olympics!), WW 11 bombadier who survived 47 days aboard a raft in the Pacific Ocean, captured by the Japanese and held as a POW for 2 years (thought dead). I won't give away the ending, except to say he's still alive (age 96). Google him if you don't read the book.
