I was memorizing Psalms before you were born. Please do not attempt to teach me about the Bible.
Why do all the old people who've lost their faith always say this??
Hmm.... makes me wonder, maybe when someday I'll be as incredibly smart as you and have memorized the entire bible, I'll lose my faith too??
No. It means that rejection of religion does usually not come from ignorance of the topic. Those of us who aren't religious can sick and tired of the whole 'You don't believe?! You must read the Bible! Surely, this is why you do not agree with me!'
Here's a bit of news, reading the Bible was one of the most important reasons I rejected religion. (Along with other religious and historical books.)
Maybe you should ask yourself some questions, 'Why do I believe?' 'Would I believe so strongly if my religion was not as popular?' 'Would I believe if I were taught another religion?' Please don't answer here, take your time and think about it. If you do and your answers sit well with you then I am happy for you. If you do and and the answers don't sit well with you, maybe you should try and find out why. If you don't think about it at all, maybe you should try to find out why you are so averse to questioning your own faith. The strongest of faith is not that those goes unquestioned, it is the faith that has been throughly questioned and held strong.
Finally, while I am giving out advice, I have one last suggestion. Before judging people, you should take the time to understand them. If more people did this, I sincerely believe the world would be a better place.
