At 82-years-old, Brought to Deism Via The Age of Reason

I'm 82 years old, raised in a Christian home. Until moving away from home I attended a protestant church; later drifting away as many do. For the last 20 years or so nagging questions about the many exaggerations, murder, plunder and mayhem found in the old testament of the Bible puzzled me. Questioning supposed experts in the religious field, I got unsatisfactory answers.....and even a few "I don't knows". Quite by accident I stumbled across a copy of Thomas Paine's The Age of Reason. At last all the answers to my questions and a whole lot more were contained therein. I'm in my 3rd reading

of this marvelous book. There is a tremendous amount of information packed into this tiny volume.
