Catholic and Protestant? you have the best of both worlds.
So what happened?
This is definitely a spiritual issue 100%.
You and others do not believe in the spirit world but that does not make it untrue.
The devil is the prince of this world but GOD/JESUS is still on the Throne and in charge or everything would be kaput.
I am against all phony baloney TV preachers, all Pedophile Priests, and the higher ups who tried to help them with Doctors which was a good thing, but very bad thing because they did not defrock them and report them to authorities et cetera.
Yanks just won 2-0 now I'm back. LOL
“All great truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”
— Arthur Schopenhauer German Philosopher
Probably what contributed most was the evident lack of magic in the world.

Everything I was told about creation ended up having scientific explanations. Then I was educated as a cosmologist and understood how the universe came to be, including planet Earth. Some of my biologist friends schooled me on how evolution worked. The mysteries of creation all had rational naturally occurring phenomena behind them.

But by the time I hit what I call the age of reason...(which for me was eleven) I realized that miracles don't happen. No faith healings, no one is raised from the dead, people speaking in tonges were just acting retarded, prayer was equivalent to wishing, stories like Samson were just those peoples Hercules... on and on.

Somewhere in the midst of all of this I began to wrap my head around how arrogant the whole thing was. Entirely and wholly self serving.

Even if there was a God who created the seemingly endless vastness of the cosmos, 400 billion galaxies, incalculable planets and moons... I don't think I have the power to offend such a being, no matter what superstitious people from 2000 years ago thought.

The more I looked at the Bible the more it made sense. Jesus is a human personification of the old sun Gods. And it is much more closely linked to astrology than astronomy. The people who wrote the bible would have known something... ANYTHING that wasn't exclusive to the 100 square miles around them if God had truly spoke to them.

I know, I know... it's about faith. If God gave me this tenacious intellect as a test to see if I will surrender it for the sake of superstition. I wouldn't think much of him anyhow.

If there was a personal relationship God. I think he would have equipped his human spokespersons with more than an old book with rumors of the greatest human sacrifice to ever take place.

So, I guess that is what happened in a nutshell.

17 By faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had embraced the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son, 18 even though God had said to him,“It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.”[c] 19 Abraham reasoned that God could even raise the dead, and so in a manner of speaking he did receive Isaac back from death.
20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau in regard to their future.
21 By faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed each of Joseph’s sons, and worshiped as he leaned on the top of his staff.
22 By faith Joseph, when his end was near, spoke about the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt and gave instructions concerning the burial of his bones.
23 By faith Moses’ parents hid him for three months after he was born, because they saw he was no ordinary child, and they were not afraid of the king’s edict.
24 By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. 25 He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. 26 He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward. 27 By faith he left Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger; he persevered because he saw him who is invisible. 28 By faith he kept the Passover and the application of blood, so that the destroyer of the firstborn would not touch the firstborn of Israel.
29 By faith the people passed through the Red Sea as on dry land; but when the Egyptians tried to do so, they were drowned.
30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell, after the army had marched around them for seven days.
31 By faith the prostitute Rahab, because she welcomed the spies, was not killed with those who were disobedient.[d]
32 And what more shall I say? I do not have time to tell about Gideon, Barak, Samson and Jephthah, about David and Samuel and the prophets, 33 who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions, 34 quenched the fury of the flames, and escaped the edge of the sword; whose weakness was turned to strength; and who became powerful in battle and routed foreign armies. 35 Women received back their dead, raised to life again. There were others who were tortured, refusing to be released so that they might gain an even better resurrection. 36 Some faced jeers and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment. 37 They were put to death by stoning;[e] they were sawed in two; they were killed by the sword. They went about in sheepskins and goatskins, destitute, persecuted and mistreated— 38 the world was not worthy of them. They wandered in deserts and mountains, living in caves and in holes in the ground.
39 These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised, 40 since God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.
LOL my mistake... The TWO greatest human sacrifices to ever take place. Well, one was almost... mehhh, you get it.

We have been talking a bit about how deceptive history can be.
I learned something while I was reading last night that fascinated me.
We all know by now that Columbus did not discover America.
But, are you aware that if it weren't for the biggest disaster in the history of the world... added to a stroke of luck in European timing that we would not inhabit this lovely country today?
The vikings were here long before Columbus and decided to establish colonies on the North East Coast. And I am not talking about European colonies.
These were colonies 1500 people strong. And they were VIKINGS for god's sake! Possibly the very last people in history who you want to see in boats off your shores. They were brutal survivors.
The Indians bitch slapped them back to Newfoundland like they were schoolgirls on the wrong side of the play ground. More than once.
So how in the hell were these wussy azz pilgrims able to lock down and keep colonies in America with populations of 50 to a few hundred?
We would like to thank their pioneering spirit and original American toughness.
Turns out that the most lethal plague in the history of the world wiped out 95% of the American Indian population just before we arrived.
Ninety Five percent... take a second to absorb that number. The black plague in Europe took out something like 60%.
In reality we were taking on a civilization that was in real life Mad Max times.
If we had showed up 5 years before or 10 years after we would have all been run back into the loving arms of the church of England... assuming we didn't run into the Vikings along the way.
Freaky stuff.
There is no such thing as luck.

Logic 101. The evidence proves the biblical story false.
Logic 101. "GOD created it" is an unfounded conclusion, not a fact.
