Why I am Not A Christian

Unlike American atheists, I was never Christian. As a teen, I was very curious about people who believed in god. I used to sneak out to churches to interview people to solve the mystery. My mom would never have approved. However, I concluded that nobody had the foggiest idea of why they believed in god or what god was. Believing in god was just something people claimed to do because other people did and because they thought it was the right thing to do. They did not think at all deeply about it. I was unimpressed. Further, I found Christians were often insufferable because they were so scornful of others and so convinced they were superior to others, just because of their choice of religion.
