I have been a Secular Humanist since the early 1970s. My parents are Lutheran and Methodist, and due to their influence I didn't give religion a though as a child, but as I entered high school, I started noticing how religious behavior did not relate to public behavior.
It wasn't until I entered military service that I started to analyze the various religions. On looking at the various gods, I found that all of them exhibited severe behavioral problems, thus contradicting their supposed 'perfection'. Also the fact that the gods did all their major communications to individuals in ancient times and that individuals who talk to any of the gods, of various religions, today, are often found to have psychiatric problems...
I therefore determined that all religions are based on ancient stories, that have little basis in fact, and all gods are myth.
