It was drilled into me pretty hard most of my life and leaving my former beliefs behind has been really difficult for me. It's really been just in the last year that I decided to leave the LDS church for good. It sucks when you come to that epiphany that what you've thought of as the truth for the last 20 years is bullshit and you start questioning everything you believe about life and death, right and wrong and have to start fresh from square one (well mostly. Some of that shit is pretty obvious across the board). It kinda fucks you up a bit but I hope I'm going to be better for it in the end.

However the universe does work, I feel pretty safe in assuming it doesn't run on Divine whim.

Friend, you made the right decision. The LDS presents a particularly bad version of Christianity. It asks you to give up your own ability to reason and self determine to the 'wisdom' of the church; which itself is built on the shakiest of foundations. By leaving the church, you have increased the likelihood that you will find the true nature of life and reality.

Happy trails.

I think I started to not believe half-way through college. It was a slow process of going from Christian (Methodist) to some from of believing in God but not attending organized church services, then to Deism, then to agnosticism and finally to atheism. Which goes over REALLY well here in the South.
