Name: Cody RobinsonDOB: 1985Location: Denver, COLabel: AtheistFormer Religious Affiliation: Protestant Christian (Non-Denominational)
I was raised Christian and, at times, felt like I was the most devout person in my immediate family. Sometimes even going to church when no one else from my family would. My de-conversion happened very gradually the more I thought about it. I’m not even quite sure when it happened but it was sometime in high school. My doubts started happening the more I actually learned about religious history. I just couldn’t comprehend the inconsistencies nor could I understand the blind faith as I learned more about science and the natural world. Eventually, I became a full blown Atheist.
I feel that I was pretty lucky in having a group of friends who did not care one way or the other. I majored in theatre and that group of people are very accepting and open minded. Even my religious friends did not treat me any differently. My mother has also been very supportive of me and defends me constantly. She has to do this because the rest of my family is very religious and has not taken kindly to me being an atheist. But, things for me are good. I count myself as one of the lucky ones and I just want people to know that no matter what happens that there is a large group of people out there who support you.Tagged with: Atheist • Christian • Colorado • Denver • Non-denominational • Protestant
