I started off may years ago as a believer in the Christian God. The only reason, my parents took me to church as a kid. In my early teens I became a general theist, not accepting religion as such but believing in ‘a creator’. Then I found my great interest in science, agnosticism came then. About 2 years ago when I decided to sit down and really think things through I finally reached the only logical conclusion. Atheism.

You won’t be surprised to hear that this was mainly from my interest in science. Last year I got to the point where I wanted to know more, understand the science better, delve right into some of the really interesting stuff – I started studying at the Open University. By the end of this year I’m going to have spent nearly £1000 on courses over a year and a half period, and that’s purely because I’m interested. All I’m gaining from it at the moment is knowledge. And I’ll be spending a whole lot more over the next few years too.
So if you’re planning on saving money, become a theist.
This is intended as a jokey kinda thing. Don’t take it seriously!
