When I was born I don't think I had any religion at all. But my parents were Protestant. Unitarian actually, which my friends in the US say is practically the same as atheist.
I was in my early teens when I began to realise that almost the entire population of Northern Ireland was stuck in the mire of religion.
You know what I meant...
would you say your being born and raised in Northern Ireland gave a boost to your determined atheist views?
