Atheists: What was the main thing that made you quit believing in God?

Report as

I've never believed in God, but I don't believe in him because I see him as a fairy tale. An extremely destructive one.

My knowledge of transcendentalism and me questioning the existence of Satan.
Transcendentalism just led me to questioning so I'm not exactly an Atheist but I'm not a Christian either- I guess i'm lost.

I questioned Satan because the thought of some being who constantly wants me to do evil in order to gain vengeance against God seemed ridiculous. I've always believed that our flaws are just a result of our human nature.

Lots of things made me quit believing....well, really I never believed in the first place. But anyways, way too much bad stuff happened to me and I had been let down by a god way too much. It just seems so stupid to me... :-/

I couldn't buy into the idea that a guy(who already existed) could create everything in the universe just by willing it to be so. I also couldn't get over the amount of evidence that supported the Big Bang and how theism had no evidence other than holy books, which I found to be written by man in man's words, not the words of god. I also thought about how horrible life was and could be, and couldn't believe that there really was some one "looking out" for me, or anyone else, when all horrible things were happening in the world. I also realized how much pain, bloodshed, conflict, and hatred has been caused by religion. These are my main reasons for atheism.
