I am a former fundamentalist Christian. I was heavily involved in the cult for 15 years of my life, from ages 19-34. I deconverted in early 2000 after doubts and questions had built up to the point that I could no longer ignore them or conveniently write them off as coming from the devil. After a great deal of thought and research, I realized that my former cherished religious beliefs were nothing but a collection of ancient myths and lies with no demonstrable basis in reality. I am probably more agnostic at the moment than atheist, but I do strongly doubt the existence of God, and I realize that my only holdout is really emotional in nature. I would like to believe that there is some sort of existence after physical death and that there is some sort of "plan" for our existence, but I am aware that there is no good evidence that supports either of those desires. I believe that if there does happen to be a God of some sort, that he/she/it has nothing at all to do with any of mankind's obviously man-made and irrational religions.
