This.

I just really feel the need to pop up and say about the whole "atheists can't understand religion" thing. Like Toujours, I was Catholic, and I went to Catholic school for 13 years, and was even an altar server. I came to the realization that I was agnostic during my Confirmation classes, then atheist after a few years of researching and learning of other belief systems.

As for atheists not understanding religion... I took theology/philosophy as minors in college. Yet, here I am an atheist.

There are actually studies done that the average atheist knows more about religion that the believers do.

I took the test, got a 30/30.
