Obsessed with Religion

A colleague at work, asked me today, why I spend so much time studying religion whereas I profess to be an atheist. It’s very simple: I figure that it would be highly hypocritical of me to criticise theists if I did not know anything about their beliefs. So, I spend an inordinate amount of time researching different religions and religious beliefs, in order to understand why they have such a hold on believers. This may sound lame, but I have learnt quite a bit about religion and people’s psyche, in the process.

I am happy to report that thus far, I have found not a single shred of evidence to believe in a God or Gods. In fact, the more I research, the more evidence I find of the non-existence of such an entity.
