JimO- At first I was a tad offended that you ‘minimized my life experience’ because I am 18 years old. Then I thought about it and you are correct, I have not read much about theology, but wish to do so. If there is any book or text that you could especially recommend I would be very grateful. Yet, I must warn you that further readings on religion will almost definately strengthen my atheist beliefs, and not persuade me of the existence of God.
GordonBOPS- I do not see how evolution is so ridiculous, but you accept as if it were fact that Jesus Christ was crucified, and then came back to life a few days later. Also that he could feed the 5,000 with a fish and a loaf of bread?! I do not see your logic. You are accepting some ‘far-fetched’ ideas, and are dismissing others. I myself am not completely sure of my opinions on evolution. I am sure that it happened and is why we are who we are today, but I am uncertain of the details. When my exams are over I am planning to do further reading on this subject, as well as theology.
To everyone who has promised to pray for me, please don’t waste your time! But thanks for the gesture. To people who have told me to keep searching- I have found what I am looking for- the truth. We just have different ideas of what the truth is! I would like to state that I am not lost, and that the world makes more sense to me now, than it did when I believed in God.
