I've been asked by many of you to share my deconversion story, and while such an event is far too broad and deep to recount here with any sort of detail, I made this video to convey, at least in part, the broad strokes. The text is a combination of two source documents -- an article I wrote for the premiere of "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" (http://www.faithstreet.com/onfaith/20...), on which I worked, and a letter I sent a beloved religious family member who was concerned recent lunar eclipses were ushering in the End Times. As always, I am far less interested in attacking those with whom I used to share a belief system, but rather showing them that I, and the millions like me who have abandoned our faith, have discovered a world of infinitely greater awe and meaning.

NOTE: Several eagle-eared viewers have noted that the dialogue in the 8th minute is largely from the documentary "Religulous." It was never my intent to pass the language off as my own. In fact, the original transcript reads: "As Bill Maher said in 'Religulous'..." but I had to make the video less than 15 minutes, so I trimmed here and there. I didn't realize until after I'd posted it that among those spots I'd trimmed contained that line!
