Comment by Bertold Brautigan on Sunday

By about sixth grade I just started having a hard time buying that the big guy up there had nothing better to do than watch and listen to my every move and secret thought. Now I'm a believer again because the NSA actually is watching.

I was an almost perfect confluence of influences, in my childhood, Spud.  I was by far the closest child to my father, so I picked up a lot of his interests, when I was a child of even 5 or 6.

Those include a love of stage magic.  The first time I saw the sawing a woman in half trick on a magic special, when I was probably 4 or 5, it freaked me the fuck out.  That grew into fascination, as I grew older, probably in somewhat the same way that some people are into horror movies.  That and a few other tricks put me into a very early mindset of wanting to figure out how things work.  Christian theology is very poor at giving sensible answers for how things actually work, in its religious claims.

My father was also seriously into Greek/Roman and Norse mythology, to which I was exposed around the time of kindergarten, as well.  Having those myths to compare the Christian myths to helped a lot.

Then, a huge set of natural science books from Time/Life, National Geographic, and Golden Books was purchased for my older brother.  I learned to read off of the things, prior to kindergarten, even.  You can imagine how that would have an impact.

Basically, my parents were religious, weekly-mass Catholics, but they weren't fundamentalist nuts.  Quite the opposite.  I suspect that my father might not have been a believer and was just stuck with it for social reasons, including my mother.  Sucks that he died when I was 21, before I was ready to have a serious discussion on the subject.

Thanks to all of those early influences, though, I was a natural skeptic, even in kindergarten.

I was the only moron kid in my school & neighborhood. I was being told one thing, & seeing another, & they weren't matching up. I was never happy with the answers to my questions, then got told I asked too many.

Dear ol' daddy was not a mormon until he was baptized when I was 16, the year before I told them I didn't want to go to church anymore. The deal was.....he'd go to church with mummy dear, if she'd go to hockey games with him.

I was ''farmed'' out to neighbors when mummy dear was hospitalized so many times, & ol' daddy wasn't going to be stuck babysitting me. He was the family child.

I of course had to go to other churches with the neighbors so got exposed to several, none of which were the same. My doubts began almost as soon as I began reading, & when my questions weren't being answered satisfactorily, & ran to books. The rest is history.

I'm amazed at how soon some of you realized it was all BS.

Except I only waited 50 years.

I realized an answer wasn't coming, after about 10 or 12.
