Always a non theist
I cannot remember a time that I didn't question the existence of god. I was lucky enough to grow up in a home where religion was not a highly regarded. My mum and dad said they believed, but that was pretty much it. I was allowed to question religion and be heard.
The more I read, the more I realized there was no truth it it. I have read almost all of the so-called holy books of the world. I have found them all to be contraditicting and condescending. The major theme throughout them all is : Don't think for yourself, god will think for you. This does not sit well with me.
Just as I came to know at an early age (10) that eating and killing animals was not ethical; I came to realize religion was just as unethical.
