      talk about how he left the church.  When he was a kid his parents got him a microscope.  He got excited about being able to examine the communion wafer to see what transubstantiation really looks like - whether Jesus' real cells would appear after the host was blessed.  He told the priest at his school how excited he was to test the hypothesis, and of course, he got in trouble.  That was it for religion for him - he felt he had done nothing wrong by being curious.
