I don't think it's as much about becoming inspired as it is losing faith in religion.
For example I was raised as a protestant Christian but as I got older I got a better understanding about how things actually work and realized that science and Christianity don't really mix. To me Christianity no longer makes sense, just a fairy tale I grew up with about being a good person.
What is so "fairy tale" about being taught and encouraged to be a good person. The idea that religion has lost its relevance to you based on that is I think terribly discomfiting if not totally disappointing.
There are areas of concordance between science and religion. Science deals with the material and physical, but religion elucidates on that material aspect of life with the concept that man must assume and aim most importantly for the spiritual. Now if you don't believe that a supernatural world exist, then I suppose you can go your own merry way.

It is my contention that the Christian religion (and specifically following Christ) is guaranteed to cause conflict, wars and ill will.As proof - I cite the last 1800 years - including the hubpages forums as evidence. Not only are these forums littered with arguments between atheists and believers,...

It's a question that has come up more than once and I have a preconceived notion about it. Do you know the Bible? Have you read it? How "advanced" is your study of the subject? Is it a 'know thy enemy' thing, or an interest in theological studies with belief absent?
