94. I can't recall a particular moment of realization.

 

It was more of a process that started in Catholic elementary school and Jesuit secondary.

I spent my post-college years until my late twenties as an agnostic, but really didn't give the question much thought, which to me is what agnosticism is really all about.

It probably wasn't until about the age of 30 that I began to understand that there had to exist a god or not, and the more I looked around me for an answer to that, the more I became convinced that there wasn't any evidence for one, but piles of evidence that religious structure is a handy way to keep people in line.
