Why I Am An Atheist #8: Angelo

Boston Atheists member Angelo writes:

After thinking about it for some time, I came to some conclusions. I thought of all the gods throughout history. I thought of all the gods that are still around today. I thought that to believe in any one of these gods, you have to believe that all the other gods were just made up stories. I then  thought it was at least possible that the god I believed was also just a made up story. At that point it hit me, it is just made up, like all the other ones. Once I began thinking that specific thought, it was very difficult to feel how I once felt about God. That was the beginning of how I began identifying myself as atheist.
