Why Am I Doing This?

My name is Jose, and I’m an atheist.

I was raised an atheist. My parents are atheists. My girlfriend’s an atheist.

I’m fine with how I feel, but I can’t help but wonder what I’m missing out on by dismissing all religions out of hand. Hence this little experiment: my year of faith.

I’ll be documenting my discoveries of various religions, which appeal to me and which don’t. Maybe I’ll have a spiritual awakening; maybe not. I hope that at least I’ll learn a little about the things people believe in, and then I can go back to my godless life with the knowledge that I’ve tried.

Try to keep up – try not to get annoyed while I stumble my way through faith.

And wish me luck!
