Was there one particular experience you had that made you lose belief in God and religion?


I grew up with an extremely religious mother. I attended Catholic schools and taught at one as an adult. I lost my faith in God and religion when I had a son with autism. Even though I was surrounded by very religious people -- my family, my in-laws, my co-workers -- they turned their backs on me during this time when I needed them the most. Now I'm wary of religious folks. This experience soured me on religion.

    Yes, those kind of tragedies tripped me up, too. Also, I had a couple people in my life who claimed God was speaking to them and guiding their lives. I knew that was more about narcissism than anything else.
