I found it harder and harder to tell myself I believed Christian theology (or any other religious dogma). After all, is the god with the body of a man and the trunk of an elephant, as worshiped in some countries, any more ridiculous than a talking snake and a burning bush? Then I stumbled upon Deism, which requires nothing more than a belief in the obvious, and I was hooked! I finally feel absolutely free, unburdened by man-made religion.
