Had to revise that. The correct quote is "upon" not "on." I have found great inspiration in the many works of Bertrand Russell. He wrote extensively on almost any subject you could name. Perhaps he will inspire you as well. I wish you the best Paul.

”As soon as we abandon our own reason, and are content to rely upon authority, there is no end to our troubles.” (Bertrand Russell)

"When you are studying any matter, or considering any philosophy, ask yourself only: What are the facts, and what is the truth that the facts bear out. Never let yourself be diverted, either by what you wish to believe, or what you think could have beneficent social effects if it were believed; but look only and solely at what are the facts."  (Russell)

Paul, I sympathize with your situation. The God hypothesis is deeply unsatisfying. It is a lazy explanation because it explains nothing at all. As for the problem of childhood indoctrination, I have composed several articles, but I think the following three might be most relevant:

Welcome, Paul ! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Undercover Atheists, Heathen GeeksLife After Christian Fundamentalism and Geek & Nerd Haven.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.
