When did you first question the existence of God?

I can't ever remember nothaving doubts in the back of my mind for as long as I can remember, which is aobut a couple of weeks after my fourth birthday.


What?! Who?! Are there people in this Forum who questions the existence of god?!
I quit!


I was eight years old at bible camp. I asked one of the counselors how they know there’s a god. She replied, “you just know.” My doubt only grew from there. I felt no faith or connection to the church by time I was 13... and left completely.


never I was brought up godless and it was my choice if I wanted to have one or not =I didnt really see the point as I had plenty of friends to play out with - being a baby boomer.


I was 10 or 11 laying in bed crying because I had been told that thinking about boobies was a sin and I would go to hell for sinning but I couldnt stop thinking about boobies.


That was 6 years ago, when I started to critically ask question about mormon doctine and until I find no reason to believe it all true, including God's existence. Not easy to deconvert oneself, there is a struggle since you live a life in a the movement for 36 years.


I never accepted the existence of God, having already become aware that things like dinosaurs once existed and that the Earth had been here for a very long time by the time I heard the myths when I first went to school. I was honestly very surprised when I discovered that, unlike the other stories teachers read to us from books at school, some people believed these ones to be true.

Even when I was little I noticed, to my chagrin, that I got everything I prayed for, good or bad. Often, after I got something, I didn't even want it.
I wondered about that, since supposedly "god" was answering and would only give me "good" things.
I also noticed that I was getting things I just thought about wanting..without even praying.

Then I noticed that the great warm presence I felt in my life, that told me what was going to happen and what to do wasn't making judgement calls, or calling anything I wanted "evil," even when it contradicted what I'd been taught in church.

I finally asked the presence I'd always assumed was god, "Are you God, or are you me, " and the answer was "Yes."

So, I knew I was god. I had been making everything happen by deciding it, as quantum mechanics says..nothing exists that wasn't imagined first.

So, physics indicates that we are participating in creating our own universes/reality.
