I would have to say that it probably was his personal choice. Lots of people are atheists. Religion, or lack of it, is something that one chooses.

I do not feel it is a choice once you have seen all the reasons that can disprove religion. However, it is your choice to feel that it is someones choice. :)

If you look at the reasons and decide that these are not enough for you to have faith in, then you still made a choice--a choice not to believe in a higher being. To do or not to do, to believe or not to believe, it is ALWAYS a choice.

Well, I feel that since he was well educated (does not mean formally educated...I mean that he had a thirst for knowledge and tried his best to understand it) he realized that not everything could and should be answered by stating that god did it. He stated: "in my opinion the idea of a personal god is a childlike on." The church and the press of his time wanted the public to believe differently, that he did believe in god. When, in fact, he did not. I believe he was an extreamly intelligent man, as do most, and I believe that his intelligence is the reason for his non-belief.
