Impressive. I doubt I could grasp the concept of a deity at two years old let alone positively reject it.

I will explain it in the simplest way.
I was a believer in many conspiracy theories about Illuminati , Freemasonry , Bilderberg Group and pseudo-facts like 911 was an inside job etc...
Since my 4 years old (1998) when I did really began to believe in God I felt that I was chosen by the creator to do important things (I was certainly trapped by my ego). This feeling follow me until my deconversion.
I read the Bible (Roman Catholic canon) and read critics made by Atheists then read and watch documentations about history. When I began to understand that all that was made-up by human mind. I thought that Satan was trying to deceit me.
After I though about look after critics of conspiracy theories. When I began to understand that conspiracy theories = false facts.
I can easily understand month to month that I was a delusional person then deconversion was full.
It was full in 2013 or 2014 (I don't remember) between the age of 19-20 years old.

Keys to understand better my story :
1.When I was 12 or 13 years old (2006-2007) I became a conspiracy theorist. Because these conspiracy theories comfort me in the belief the eternal gave me a mission. I discovered conspiracy theories with my interest in esoteric beliefs when I was aged of 11 or 12 years old (2005-2006).
2.I made researches to find the right Christian denomination. I can't found it. None of these are right because Christianity = fake.
3.I know that evolution theory is true since my 8 years old (2002). (All these years I thought that the Genesis is only an allegory to explain sin etc... but when I read it at the age of 16 or 17 years (2010-2011) old I can't understood the sense of this text. Now I know this isn't an allegory like it contain the beliefs of a group of human from the Ancient world).

In present time , I know that I lived in a delusion nearly my whole life.

It is never too late to make a change in life. Don't feel that you have wasted you life being deluded. You have the bigger part of your life left over to enjoy the freedom of rational thinking. Well done. :cheers:

I was over 40 years old when I made the change, so it's never too late. :dance:

I know it's never too late. A deconversion at the age of 20 or 21 years old (I'm 22 years old) is still better than a deconversion when we are aged of 40 years old.

I feel like being another person. A person better that I was before this event.
I was a man believing in conspiracy theories. One reason among many others who made me a conspiracy theorist was it was confirming my religious beliefs (Do you know this conspiracy theory that is a pseudo-project called blue beam ?).

I don't believe in any conspiracy theories anymore or in any religion.
Now , I'm someone who take care only facts (Reading and watching many sources , search information about journalist who wrote an article , look information about who own the information source [TV channels , journals , magazines etc...] etc...).

I grow stronger in a way that I can define in some words.
It's positive and this is a good thing for my future.

Keep in mind there are still conspiracies out there. It's just a matter of separating the credible from the nutty.

Yeah there are ....just reading Operation Mincemeat ( the actual story behind The Man Who Never Was ). There were just incredible conspiracies in WWII and in the Cold War that followed a few of which altered history.

But sorting out the real from the smoke screens from the totally looney can be a challenge. Best to avoid the nonsense entirely and wait for the archives to open 50 years on. ( Body Guard of Lies for instance about Magic and Ultra )>
