I'm in the winter of my anger at my religious indoctrination (Kodachrome moment)

At 62 and as a atheist since 8th grade, I am completely stunned when I recall all of the bible verses I studied and memorized to quote back, the sheer utter unbelievable mythology, and then the studied reconciliation of that earlier indoctrination to make it seem to fit reality when it was discovered that I could think for my self.

What utter and horrible child abuse I now claim. I am grateful for the science education I got that was not tainted with religious prejudice.

This just came over me today, mostly I have been at peace with my upbringing, but now today, somehow I am suddenly pissed off.

And angry at the religious folks who want to control my very existence to conform with their superstitions, in government in particular.


Oh, and hi everyone!

Dave

4. understandable

Not about religion, but other things have crept to the forefront of my memory like that on me with no warning and when you realize what really was going on back then you do get pissed!!

Just think of the kids that get only science with the religion in it
anywhere around the world matters not the brand
just the lack of real education and the mumbo jumbo they experience is sad
