Unlike many, there was never a time when I WAS religious.  I just never was.  And I'm glad to not having to had to fight my way to atheism.  I just always was.

Exactly ... only a demigod could be like that ... Mr Always Was.

Is it the social aspect you never were a part of ... or are you claiming that you have never engaged in magical thinking?

I had to fight my way, but the journey was highly rewarding.  The part that pisses me off is that fighting to find my way to reality only happened because I had been fed a whole bunch of untruths by my family and society.  It pisses me off that people would do this to children.  Well, it pisses me off that it was done to me.  No one should have to fight just to be normal.  You should just be allowed to be normal.  It's like someone takes a normal child at a young age, and deprives him of reality by forcing him into a fantasy world, so that his  purpose in life then becomes finding his way out of the fantasy.  Hell, I could have spent that time bettering myself, morally, financially, and emotionally.  It is perhaps the most rewarding waste of time I have ever had to deal with.  LOL

Unfortunately ... the alternative is keeping babies free of language and culture until they are 21 ... when they can be let out of the language/culture free box, to be indoctrinated by SJW folks ;-)  Or are you just complaining that life isn't fair?  That would be very SJW.

Life isn't always fair.  I accept that, but I don't want a refund.  I'll just make do with it.
