Hi Maz, that was a good post and interesting to read. You may find that many others here have had difficult journeys from religion to atheism. Me personally I am fortunate never to have been stuck with those beliefs, and reading stories like yours I know that my good fortune has been great indeed.
"History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government".
-Thomas Jefferson

Burden of proof is the obligation on somebody presenting a claim to provide evidence to support its truth (a warrant). Once evidence has been presented, it is up to any opposing "side" to show the evidence presented is not adequate. If claims were accepted without warrants, then every claim could simultaneously be claimed to be true.

History isn't written by the victors. It's written by the people with the time machines.

I'm only here in the hope that eventually noone will write posts like that.
