That's why I said in the beginning that the first step to communicating with God is to have faith in God, maybe you didn't have any, maybe you were trying to for yourself and trying to pray the same way you change channels on the TV. God doesn't work that way.
Nope...nice try, though.

I assure you, this was before I was an atheist. I was raised in a religious family. I did, in fact, believe. Then, as time went on, and the realization dawned that there was no god out there, I left religion behind.

Generally speaking atheists are more caring and more generous than religious people.

Well of course not. They'd have to be delusional like YOU to pray to something that they know isn't there. DUH!!!

Hmmm.... I think I'll eat a piece of cheese cake that doesn't exist.

Oh gee... Why am I still hungry? LOL....

Fact.
Amazing how utterly stupid the average theist is. They can't even comprehend the meaning of simple words like fact.

What other creatures do you start out with the premise that they exist? Leprechauns, aliens on Pluto, what? Either your sky fairy gave you a small malfunctioning brain or you are just a hypocrite coward unable to face your own mortality honestly. Any coward who kneels in prayer has not learned the proper use of their legs.

You realized that there is no god?

How did you come up with this glorious assumption?

Hi Pat.

I've told you a thousand times that Christians don't believe in sky fairies, only atheists do.

Good grief, you're tedious. Allow me to repeat myself - again

I was raised in a religous household. I believed in god. I prayed to god. I reached out to god. I asked god to come into my heart. I did everything that I was supposed to do and I did it with great sincerity.

I felt, heard, saw, experienced absolutely nothing in return. That was an eye opener. From there it was a simple matter of seeing that once you get past the pomp and ceremony of religion, there isn't any proof that god exists. None

So...no observable, measurable, tangible data that god exists. No emotional, spiritual, physical respone to my reaching out and praying to god.

That is how I cam to my conclusion.

I've had the opposite experience.

God has even touched me, literally.

It's too bad you gave up.

I don't think you quite understand the meaning of the word "literally"

WTF? Of course I do.

To take words in the most basic sense without metaphor or allegory. Also means; exactly.

God literally touched my head.

Well, I do believe you are touched in the head...god didn't do that, however.
