When I went to confirmation classes as a teenager, I found that no one wanted to engage with the creed and core teachings of the church, but rather to have us memorize key statements, which were to remain unquestioned. I've examined a number of world religions, but am an atheist. The following quotation from database architect Stephen Roberts explains why: "I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours."
