Hello my name is Christina,
I’m from Michigan,USA.
I have been doubting God since 6th grade, but it wasn’t until now, just recently that I came out as an atheist. Even though I have doubted God for a long time I still was a devote christian. I attended church and read my bible, which I must say is the main reason for my doubt. While some of the parts of the bible are straight out of a fairy tale, other parts seem to show the God of the bible’s dark side. And the idea that someone like Hitler would go to heaven for accepting Jesus, and that a atheist that did nothing but good would go to Hell seems rediculous to me. The God of the Bible seems childish, has a bad temper, and is so wrong.
My cousin, Jon is the only other one in my family that I know of is an atheist. Every one else in my family are devote christians. My mom cried and screamed when I told her I dont believe in God(s). She says she can’t understand why I would trade faith for scientific facts. My family keeps trying to shove their beliefs down my throat every chance they get. Yet they refuse to listen to what I have to say, and on the rare occasion that they do listen, they ussually don’t understand what I try to explain to them.
