@Dr Raskolnikov: same questions as i asked to aZerogodist.

Thanks to everyone who'se participated. This is already really helping my understading somewhat, even if it cant exactly be considered random sampling of atheists in ireland :P If you'd try to answer some of my further questions in this post i'd really appreciate your inputs :)
I don't live in Ireland any more - but the tentacles of religion can reach out to you across the sea. When you know the damage that the truth can do to individual real people who you love, it's not so easy to live by your principles. I would happily stand up to the Pope himself, but my own mother and father... I couldn't do it to them. It's not their fault their minds have been irreperably poisoned by religion. But it's my fight, not theirs.
