What I wrote at Reddit about why I threw out the moronic Magic-Man fantasy,.
"Did anyone else become an atheist all by themselves?"
I figured it out. It took awhile because the brainwashing was intense.
A few important events: When I was 17 years old my girlfriend asked me why do I go to church. The question shocked me and I was speechless. I could not answer the question.
At about the same time I was explaining one of the Catholic fantasies to some friends. They laughed at me.
At age 18 the Pastor, 2 Sundays in a row, spent the entire sermon asking us to give him more money for the wealthy Vatican. It was then I realized the Catholic Church is a business and the customers are suckers. I never went to church again. A few years later I threw out the ridiculous god fantasy. I did this by "thinking". Thinking is the biggest threat to theism. That's why part of the brainwashing is to encourage the victims to not think.
Today I totally get it. Magic is not real therefore the Magic Man is impossible. I'm a hardcore atheist (100% certain god is bullshit). On 9/11/2001 I became anti-theist. Theism (and the equally stupid agnosticism) must be eradicated from this planet before it destroys all of us.
