I hate driving or riding in the car, and before I was an atheist, I would pray before and during any trips in the car. Now, when I drive on this one part of the road where there is a big drop off with no railing, I find myself saying "please keep us safe, please keep us safe" but, who am I talking to? I don't believe there is a God or anything else that will supernaturally keep me safe, lol. Do you ever find yourself doing anything like that?

Were you always an Atheist? I ask only because if you were a believer in God for any amount of time, I think the brainwashing is so extensive that it takes a long time for that automatic 'turning to God' thing to go away. The more you place trust in yourself, the less that will happen. The de-programming takes time. At least that's how it was with me.
