    My path to reason,

    Age 12 Involuntarily laughed at "Homer proves there is no God to Flanders" episode of The Simpsons and felt uneasy about it

    Age 13 became skeptical of UFO shows on the grounds of them showing nothing of substance

    Age 16 became aware of James Randi's million dollar challenge, was introduced to skeptical thought

    Age 17 Watched Penn & Teller: Bullshit! Episode on Mother Teresa with the volume down so that my parents wouldn’t notice, felt I shouldn’t be watching, but was too intrigued not to

    Age 18 Began feeling deeply uneasy and uncomfortable at Church and had no explanation for it

    Age 19 Began a search for evidence in support of miracles defying natural law. Intended to find that God intervenes in the world. Felt the pain of cognitive dissonance. Came across websites godisimaginary.com and whywontgodhealamputees.com and became an atheist in a matter of hours.

    Age 20 Came across FDR on youtube

  8. The abstract of a 2014 peer-reviewed study in the journal Plos One reported: American participants intuitively judged a wide variety of immoral acts (e.g., serial murder, consensual incest, necrobestiality, cannibalism) as representative of atheists, but not of eleven other religious, ethnic, and cultural groups. Even atheist participants judged immoral acts as more representative of atheists than of other groups. These findings demonstrate a prevalent intuition that belief in God serves a necessary function in inhibiting immoral conduct, and may help explain persistent negative perceptions of atheists. Recently the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life has published its mammoth study on Religion in America based on 35,000 interviews... According to the Pew Forum a whopping 37% of atheists never marry as opposed to 19% of the American population, 17% of Protestants and 17% of Catholics. The typical no-faith American donated just $200 in 2006, which is more than seven times less than the amount contributed by the prototypical active-faith adult ($1500). Even when church-based giving is subtracted from the equation, active-faith adults donated twice as many dollars last year as did atheists and agnostics. In fact, while just 7% of active-faith adults failed to contribute any personal funds in 2006, that compares with 22% among the no-faith adults. The research survey of 1535 people, conducted by the Australian National University, revealed that belief in evolution is associated with moral permissiveness. Darwin himself apparently feared that belief in evolution by the common man would lead to social decay. The survey showed that people who believed in evolution were more likely to be in favour of premarital sex than those who rejected Darwin’s theory. Another issue which highlighted the contrast between the effect of evolutionary ideas and that of biblical principles was that Darwinians were reported to be ‘especially tolerant’ of abortion. The first so called "bestiality/zoophile rights" group, called Equality for All, has its roots in secular Europe and formed in the '90s. It is located in the Czech Republic. According to a 2010 Eurobarometer poll, 16% of Czech citizens responded that "they believe there is a God" which the lowest rate among the countries of the European Union. And the list goes on and on... Source http://www.conservapedia.com/Atheism_and_moral_depravity
