Well, thanks for a wall of posted nothingness.
Except this little Liar For ChristTM gem bolded above.
If you live in the wester culture, it is simply not possible for you to have grown up without SOME indoctrination to the bible and biblegod and his mythical "son" jesus.
It permeates our culture in every medium possible. So you were already "pre-conditioned" to the myth before you actively started "seeking."
And, as most people who fall into the myth, you opened yourself up at a vulnerable period in your life and, lo and behold, "found" the answer.
Actually you couldn't be more wrong. I didn't really know anything about the bible, or Jesus. All I knew of was a judgmental angry God who was going to send me to hell for being me. I had no emotional need for God either. My concern was for the world, not for myself. Not only that but I didn't become religious, and I am still not religious, so you're really jumping to conclusions here.
Except you already know that the entire myth fails every test of logic.
It's a "feel good" "wishful thinking" phenomenon.
You know it, which is why you are trying to quash that line of "defense" right out of the starting gate.
No, no amount of "want to" makes the myth of biblegod, or any god-being, a reality.
Sorry that you stopped your critical thinking skills so early in life. Perhaps when you really do approach the subject with an awareness of how you have not only been pre-indoctrinated, but how you have also voluntarily turned off the entire logic section of your brain you will see how ridiculous your "testimony" above is.
As I said before, this was direct revelation. I wasn't looking for it. I didn't read a bible and suddenly become convinced. Gods Spirit came upon me and let me know those things in no uncertain terms. I wasn't looking for God, nor was I was worried for myself or what would happen to me. I appreciate your concern for my well being by my critical thinking skills are doing just fine. If you had actually read my post you would see that I didn't become convinced for any other reason than Gods direct intervention, which has nothing to do with logic, or thinking. That was the entire point..that you can only know God by revelation.
