    I know this is more of a question than anything but I think it'd be a cool topic, I have always heard stories from people who didn't believe and had something happen in their life then they believed what is your story?

      An innocent and loving woman can turn into a whore and a drug addict
      A drug addict and whore can turn into a follower of faith
      A responsible hard working and loving father can turn into a child molester
      A child molester can turn into a follower of faith
      A follower of faith can turn into a child molester
      An assassin can turn into a follower of faith
      A follower of faith can turn into an assassin
      Death of a loved one can turn the faithful into being the faithless.

      Life experiences and our choices will determine how, when and what we turn to or not.

        That is true and makes a lot of sense as well, that's why I put this forum I enjoy reading other people opinions when it comes to faith and religion.

    This is usually something which is revealed during conversation in the forums of many different threads.

    I was born and raised Catholic, went to classes and made my Communion. Sometime later at 17 years old I made my Confirmation. Not to mention, I was baptized in a church.

    At the age of 22, after having been turned down from the dream job I wanted, I return to the church I grew up in and spoke with a Priest about the bible in which I continued to read. I have read it several times and having some questions about it, I approached the Priest with questions in mind, and all he did was point me back to the book.

    I figured it was quite rude considering my question regarding the book, couldn't be answered within the book. I know, I looked. After that, I only stepped into a church for funerals of family and friends, out of respect for the dead.

    I decided enough was enough and started to research the book itself and it's history, as well as, world religions and world history, and human development. During my 10+ years of study, I ended up dropping the belief altogether because of the revealed history of the book and human development.

    What I learned during that time led me to a simple understanding.

    (A) Life doesn't require any knowledge of any G/god to be understood.
    (B) Life doesn't require any knowledge of any G/god to be lived.

    Conclusion: No G/god Required, Needed, Desired, Wanted or Warranted.

      That's really interesting and makes a lot of sense.  I have always wondered what people saw in the bible just because it was man made, and it always drove me nuts thinking about how something like a simple book can be worshiped by so many.  On top of that it seems that no one can explain the book.  But in the aspect of religion in itself I believe in God but organized religion is a joke.  I really hate when people try to push that on other people I look at you no different because you don't believe but the people that would criticize you because of beliefs.  I am a truck driver and seeing a lot the the country and natural beauties of it really made me believe.

        Yeah, I get that a lot. People make the claim that Nature itself and the wonderful beauty of Earth had to be planned or created by some intelligent force/power.

        I call it the "shock and awe" syndrome people cannot get over.

    Friend of mine was a sanguine slave. He hoped to be turned --into a vampire of course. When it failed to happen, he became an accountant and moved to South America.
