The Talentless Chump

I became an atheist by being born.

The wicked are estranged from the womb; they go astray from birth, speaking lies. Psalm 58:3

This is not a flippant answer; religion, faith and God never made sense to me from the get go. I simply didn’t believe any of it.

For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1 Corinthians 1:18.

However, had I been exposed to one of the more shrill and strident religions (see what I did there?) I still don’t think it would have had any effect on me. I just don’t think I’m that kind of person.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. Romans 1:18

It wasn’t until about two decades later that I started to learn why I didn’t believe what I didn’t believe. And I’m still learning.

He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision. Psalm 2:4
