- because the bible is an astro-theological/literary hybrid plagiarized from a ton of different stories predating the life of jesus christ.

- the fact that christianity has kept people ignorant and caused such a slow pace with important scientific research and discovery.

even as a little kid i never felt comfortable in a church or hearing anyone get all preachy to me. that started it.

i think christianity in modern times has shot itself in the foot. everyone picks and chooses what rules they follow and what ideals to believe in, kind of spoiling the whole point of being religious to begin with. plus, have you ever read the bible? it is insane to think people really believe that stuff. so i guess not wanting to be likened to hypocrites and a general disbelief in the "word of god" are my reasons

oh and the religious right is the most insane political group in the universe

1. Compulsory love of a being that I must also fear at every turn. I don't know what thats like, and I don't ever want to know what thats like.

2. Morality, ethics and good all came to me without the teachings of Christ. I don't do good because I think I may be rewarded by god, nor do I restrain from bad because I fear punishment from him. I do both because I'm a human being with a mind that has endless potential for understanding of good and evil without being scared into it. Are the religious moral when they say they do things mainly for punishment/reward at their death?

3. Even in the elementary, incredibly feeble understanding I have of our earth, our universe, our species, I still find them much more awe inspiring, fascinating and humbling than any story about an invisible man or burning bushes. Christianity is simply not needed for me to understand anything about myself or the world around us. And I submit, it's not needed for anyone.

Theres a ton of other reasons.
