It’s not because …

I don’t feel the presence of a god, but that’s not the reason I am no longer a believer. If I felt something that seemed like the presence of a god, that would not compel me to believe.

I find the Christian rules of salvation impossible to pin down, but that’s not the reason I am no longer a believer. If the rules were coherent, that would not compel me to believe.

I suspect that most professing Christians (at least in the United States) are only ‘cultural Christians,’ but that’s not the reason I am no longer a believer. If they were all genuine believers, that would not compel me to believe.

And I’m not angry at anyone, or even hurt or disappointed. Nothing traumatic happened to make me ‘turn my back’ on my former belief system.

I just took a frank, objective look at what I had always considered proof of the claims of Christianity, and realized it wasn’t strong enough evidence.
