For all of you who were religious before you turned to atheism, why do you believe there is no God? Oh, you may back it up with current facts, but something started you on this path before the facts came into play. Maybe religion left a bad taste in your mouth. Maybe someone did something to you. Maybe God didn’t come through for you like you wanted him to. Whatever formed your opinion about God, scientific evidence probably didn’t play a huge role in it. And all this talk about God being a totalitarian, or asking unreasonable human sacrifice from Abraham, or not being the God we think he is doesn’t back up your point. It just reveals your hurt.
