Default Analytical Thinking

I don't think I became an atheist because I started thinking differently, I started being more analytical, more skeptical after I found there were small pockets of reform among different Catholics. I started looking for any feminist leanings by people or groups of Catholics, then started to read more about what is really true about the bible (not much ) and then found Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins and I was done.

I don't think I was angry at god but at myself and my parents. Of course all this took place after my mother had died. She would have argued ferociously. If she wasn't already dead, my becoming atheist would probably have killed her!
