About the Author
I am a 24-year-old atheist who takes my lack of religion very seriously. I try to take a psychology point-of-view when studying the influence of religion on people considering I am getting back into Penn State for Psychology then a doctorate in Psychiatry. I love to have discussions about subjects that will make me think. I'm fascinated with science and also love to have intelligent discussions about it. My family are all Christian so I am the only atheist in my family, but that doesn't stop me from voicing my concerns and distaste for religion.
