About Me:I'm currently in high school, but possess a lot of knowledge due to self-education. I love philosophy, physics, and mathematics, and have skipped 2 years of math courses in high school.
Activities:Academic Decathlon, Math
Beliefs:After a long struggle over faith, I have emerged stronger. I realized that religion was holding me back intellectually, and every day Christianity seemed more and more ridiculous. I think I knew from at least 10 or 11 that there was no way that God exists, but it took me six years to finally accept it. Politically, I am a libertarian. However, after my relatively recent deconversion from Christianity, I am much more open minded. After all, if I was wrong about God, I might well be wrong about other things.

I will attempt to show the God of the Bible (hereafter God) is not perfectly morally good as he claims to be by looking at the Bible and the real world. The first round is for acceptance only. Good luck!...
