Ok, this is the thing. I've recently "converted", if you will, to an atheist. My parents/family are all catholics. I was baptized as a child, and I still have a cross in my closet from that baptizing. So am I wrong to change religions on my family?
The reason why I changed was simple. I need a logical explanation for everything. EVERYTHING. Say, for example, myself and a priest see a little shining light in the corner, I would need a logical explanation for it. Spark, flashlight, reflection, whatever. But the priest would look at that and go, "oh...perhaps it's a sign. Maybe jesus is showing us the way." I can't see the logic in that, so I choose not to believe it.
And on T.V, you got pastors who simply put their full hand on a person's forehead, say "The power of God is flowing through your body" and this person is instantly cured of cancer in their lungs. It just simply doesn't make sense to me, so I cannot believe in it.
It's not that I think it's fake, but until some miraculous thing happens to me, for instance I ACTUALLY SEE heaven, then yes, I'll believe after that. But until it does, I just can't believe in something, that to me, doesn't make sense.
Now, what I'm asking is, Am I simply being ignorant? Should I have proper beliefs? Am I making a mistake by choosing not to believe in any religion at all?
Thanks for any input you make.
