Jason Gibson was raised as a fundamentalist Christian and bought into all of it. His father was a minister, so the church was pretty much his life. At around 30, he made a commitment to read the Bible in its entirety to strengthen his faith. It took about 6 months to read it through, fervently praying for wisdom and understanding as he read it. When he was finished, he had more questions than answers, so he read it through again and made note of any contradictions or immoral actions taken by the God he so revered. When he finished the Bible the second time, he had 96 pages of contradictions, inconsistencies, and immoral acts by God. It was then that he became an atheist. "If the Bible is perfect, it should not contain even one contradiction," he thought, "not one inconsistency, not one immoral act by God." Realizing that the emperor had no clothes was a scary proposition, but he is glad he came to reason. He now sees life as it truly is: this is our only chance to live in this beautiful, often weird universe. After coming to reason, he developed a sort of mantra: be the best version of yourself that you can be.
